You've invested in your brushes so you want them to last!
An important part of your beauty routine is regularly cleaning your makeup brushes. It is easy to let this chore go by the wayside, but there are many reasons that you must maintain your makeup brushes. At Blank Canvas Cosmetics, we recommend that you clean your makeup brushes at a minimum of once a month, but if you use your makeup brushes with liquid products or store them uncovered in the bathroom, you should clean them more frequently.
5 reasons you should clean your makeup brushes regularly
Whenever you use your makeup brushes, they are collecting everything that is on your face — namely, oil, dead skin cells, dust, and anything else clinging to your skin. This is a recipe for disaster (or rather, acne). Every time you use a dirty brush, you are wiping this disgusting combination all over your face, clogging your pores as a result.
Better Color Application
Dirty makeup brushes are also ineffective for applying color precisely. With old makeup caked on your brushes, you are unable to get the look you’re going for, whether that is naturally blended contour or a dramatic eyeshadow.
Maintain Soft Brushes
Dirty brushes become more abrasive and dry as they become more caked with product and debris from your face. In turn, this irritates your skin. Cleaning your brushes regularly keeps them soft enough to not cause damage to your face.
Dirty makeup brushes are also a breeding ground for bacteria. Not only is this terrible for your face, it also is bad for your makeup products. Transferring all this bacteria to your products taints them, and what should have lasted you a year will spoil within months.
Longer lasting brushes
When you clean your Blank Canvas makeup brushes regularly, you are preserving them. The more frequently you clean them, the longer your investment will last.
