Why Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes is Important?

Dirty makeup brushes affect your overall skin health and start to tamper with the quality of your makeup products. Excessive buildup on makeup brushes can cause the bristles and follicles to weaken. Transitioning from sponges to brushes can help you achieve that flawless finish, but if they’re covered in weeks’ worth of pigments and powders, they’ll be harder to blend, causing your makeup to appear muddy or uneven.
The bristles of an average makeup brush are made of either natural human hair or synthetic hair. Synthetic brushes tend to accumulate makeup residue more easily than natural hair bristles.

How Often to Clean Your Makeup Brushes?

Regular makeup brush care is crucial for maintaining the health of your brushes and your skin. According to dermatologists, you’re supposed to soak and clean your makeup brushes, especially concealer and foundation brushes, at least once weekly. Depending on the type of bristles and frequency of usage, you can decide how often you need to clean them. This is one of the essential brush-cleaning tips that prevents product buildup and allows them to perform better.

Step-by-Step Guide to Cleaning Makeup Brushes

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
To clean makeup brushes effectively, especially professional ones like Uroparis brushes, you will need a mild or baby shampoo, Uroparis Brush Cleaner, lukewarm water, and a clean towel

Step 2: Rinse and Apply Cleanser

To clean your dirty makeup brushes, soak the bristles in lukewarm water to loosen the product buildup. Be careful not to soak the handles. After soaking, gently scrub the bristles with your fingers. Then, apply a gentle cleanser, such as Uroparis Brush Cleanser, which is easy on the bristles and safe for your skin to remove any remaining product and bacteria. Rub the brush against your hand or another clean, sterilized surface to thoroughly clean it.

Product Tip: You can use Uroparis Brush Cleaner to thoroughly clean your brushes between makeup applications. Its antibacterial formula removes all kinds of makeup impurities, oil, and dust from the brushes, and they dry immediately before being used again.

Step 3: Rinse Thoroughly
Put your brushes back under warm water to wash out any remaining product. Once all the product residue and brush cleanser have been rinsed, gently squeeze the water out from the bristles of your brush by giving it a little twist. Repeat until your brushes are wet but not dripping.

Step 4: Drying Your Brushes
Before patting, separate the bristles of your brush into their original shape. As different makeup brushes are meant for various purposes, this step will ensure the utility of your tool remains intact. Place the wet brushes on a clean towel or cotton cloth and let them air dry overnight. Proper drying time for your makeup brushes and sponges is crucial to prevent mold infestation.

Remember, makeup brush care is about cleaning and proper maintenance to keep them mold-free and effective.
