Best Way to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Cleaning your brushes regularly is an absolutely must. Nobody likes having or using bacteria-infested brushes! I think a lot of people put off cleaning their brushes because it seems like a long, taxing process. Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s much easier and quicker than you might think.

Let me introduce you to one of my must-have products: The Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner. This blue liquid not only cleans brushes in a matter of seconds but it conditions your brushes and it’s an anti-bacterial. You might wonder why it’s important to condition your brushes, and the answer is simple, brushes that are cleaned and conditioned regularly last longer. Brushes aren’t exactly cheap, so putting a little time into taking good care of them is a worthwhile effort!

And how often should you clean your brushes? It really depends on how much you use them. But a reasonable timeframe is to clean them once every two weeks. If you tend to use your brushes a lot, you can clean them once a week. If you happen to have a brush that’s saturated with a black eyeshadow and you want to use it to apply a lighter color, you can clean the brush using the Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner and have it dried and ready to use in 10 minutes.

All you’ll need besides the brush cleaner is a small glass or plastic container and a towel. So watch my quick video and see just how easily and quickly you can clean even your dirtiest, most saturated brushes!

After earning my Master’s degree in Communication Management in 2009, I figured it was time to combine my academic know-how with some expert consumer advice to bring all things beauty to my readers and viewers. My specialty? Skincare. I think we’re all at our most beautiful when we’re just down to moisturizer and lip balm, and I hope to make every woman who reads my content feel confident enough to rock the natural look. But considering I’m also a product junkie, you’ll find some fun makeup looks and tutorials from me, too!
