Tip 3: Separate your brushes
Now tackle the brushes. "Most likely you have brushes that are snarled, knotted or frayed. Toss them," says Wade. "Brushes should always be stored in a separate makeup bag or pouch (whether you travel with them or leave them at home). These are the tools of the trade and so they should be treated with TLC," she continues. (See the only makeup brushes you actually need here.)
If you store brushes at home, "keep them upright in a container or invest in a brush roll like the pros," says Wade. Also, never neglect to clean them. Wade recommends aiming to clean brushes once a week with warm water and shampoo, then laying them out overnight to dry.
