Caring for Makeup Brushes

If you invest in high-quality makeup brushes, you will have them for years.

A commercial sanitizer can be used for quick cleaning, although spray-on sanitizers contain a high level of alcohol and will dry brushes over time.  A gentle shampoo (baby  shampoo, for example) or brush solvent should be used  to truly clean the brushes.  These products will not hurt brushes and may actually help them last longer.  One caution:  the brush should be placed under running water or still water with the metal ring that keeps bristles and handle together, pointing downward.  If the brush is pointed up, the water may remove the glue that keeps the bristles in place.  Rinse brushes thoroughly after cleansing.  Because they will dry in the shape they are left in, reshape the wet bristles and lay flat to dry.
