Best time to wash your brush? When your brush no longer feels like a new brush. A new brush feels wonderful on the skin and blends makeup effortlessly. As product builds up on bristles over time, the brush doesn’t feel smooth on your skin, resulting in streaky coverage. How often should you wash your brush? This is a personal preference, but once a week is a good guideline for your daily brushes. Remember, the longer makeup sits on the bristles, the more bacteria will grow. So regardless of the number of uses, cleaning your brushes frequently is a good idea. Head to your bathroom or kitchen counter and set up your brush cleansing palette, deep gel cleanser, a bowl of warm water, and a kitchen towel. Step 1: Slip hand into the palette and squeeze a drop of our brush cleansing gel onto the tool. Dip the brush into bowl of water (careful to only immerse the bristles), then swirl into the gel along the various surfaces of the palette. Step 2: Dip the bristles back into bowl of water to rinse off excess, then repeat swirling your brush over palette. Step 3: Rinse bristles thoroughly with warm water from the faucet, squeeze out the excess water and wipe onto dry towel. Step 4: Dry brushes upside down to keep water from loosening the glue in the ferrel. Rest your brushes across the surface of the brush cleansing palette or use the panoramic case from one of our sets.
