I've been using the same set of makeup brushes for years. They're not fancy or expensive, but they're mine and I love them dearly. It's taken some time to establish the best way to clean them without damaging them, but now that I have a routine down, and know how important it is for their longevity, I'm happy with my brushes and happy with myself. However, all this could have been avoided if I had paid more attention to proper storage when I first started using makeup!
Keep Your Brushes Clean
Brushes can harbor bacteria, which is why it's important to wash them regularly. You should do this at least once a week, and more often if you use your brushes frequently or share them with others. Use a brush cleaner or makeup remover (like Johnson's Baby Shampoo) on the bristles, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Avoid using alcohol-based products like rubbing alcohol because they can dry out the bristles of your brushes and cause breakouts!
Store them vertically in containers that are airtight and upright so they don't get warped over time while also allowing airflow around each individual brush so they don't get moldy either, this means no stacking!
Makeup Products Can Go Off
You may think that makeup products are just fine as long as they're stored in their original containers, but this is not always true. Makeup products can go bad if they are exposed to heat, light and moisture. This means that if you don't use your makeup regularly or have a lot of it lying around your home, it's best to throw out any product that has been open for more than six months.
The best way to make sure that your cosmetics are properly stored is by keeping them in cool dry places where no one will accidentally knock them over (which could cause spills). The next time you find yourself wondering how long does foundation last? Or what's the shelf life of eyeshadow? You'll know exactly where everything goes!
You Can't See What's Inside
- It's hard to see what you have.
- You can't tell if something is running out or expired.
- You can't tell if something is dirty or leaking.
The Best Way To Clean Makeup Brushes Is In A Liquid Soap Solution
To clean makeup brushes, use a liquid soap solution. You can make this by mixing water with a gentle soap or detergent. The most important thing is to dilute the soap with water so that it becomes less harsh on your brushes and doesn't damage them.
Rinse the brush in warm water until all traces of makeup have been removed before draining out any excess liquid from the bristles. Roll up an old towel in such a way that it forms a tube around your hand; then roll each brush end over end against this towel until dry (this helps prevent mold growth).
A Good Routine For Cleaning And Organizing Your Makeup Is Important For Its Longevity And For Your Health
Cleanliness is key when it comes to keeping your skin clear, so it's important to cleanse your face regularly. This will remove dirt and oil from the pores, preventing breakouts. You should also clean brushes on a regular basis (at least once a week), as this prevents bacteria buildup that can lead to breakouts or infections in other areas of the body like the eyes or nose.
Organization is also key when it comes to storing makeup products; otherwise they could get lost amid all those other things you keep in your bag! If they're not organized well enough, then there's no telling where something might end up, and if that happens too often then eventually you won't be able to find anything at all anymore! That would be bad news since these products aren't cheap either and neither are medical bills if something goes wrong while using improperly stored cosmetics.
