How to clean your make up brushes

A few years ago i never really thought about how often you should clean your brushes or how.  A good set of brushes can be expensive so you want to take good care of them.  I personally use baby shampoo to clean mine its gently enough for a baby so its ok for my brushes. Cleaning your brushes  helps keep them soft and supple, but it helps clear out dirt and oil as well as bacteria that can build up. Experts say that

Eye shadow brushes should be cleaned every 2 to 3 days.

Eye liner brushes after each use.

Foundation brushes at least once a week.

Blush and Bronzer brushes once a week as well.

You want to put a small amount in your hand dampen brush and work the shampoo in gently slowly adding water. Start at the base of the hair and work  up to the tips.  After they are nice and clean pat them with a paper towel, make sure to reshape them leave them to dry on another paper towel or a regular towel  once completely dry you have a nice clean brush.
