How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes jenny patinkin brush soap review

Cleaning makeup brushes isn’t the most thrilling task, but it certainly needs to be done. Bacteria, dead skin cells, oils, and product residue can accumulate quickly and cause a bit of a ruckus on your skin so it’s ideal to wash your brushes once a week, although it’s more of a twice-a-month thing for yours truly. #justbeinghonest

I will say, though…not much makes me happier than my brush container filled with freshly-washed and completely clean brushes! Here’s how I wash my brushes, which has become a much quicker and less wasteful task this year.
