High Quality, High Value Brush Cleaner

Now I know my avid readers and makeup lovers use makeup brushes every time they apply makeup, right? Well if I assumed correctly, you must also be cleaning them too right? I hope so! It is super important to clean your makeup brushes for many reasons. The most obvious: if you don't clean the brushes and you go to use a new color, old color will transfer and you'll have to start all over again! But much more importantly, BACTERIA! Let's face it, you're often applying liquids to your face which has oils, bacteria, and any other remnants that landed there all mixing together on your brushes! Then if left dirty, bacteria, oil, and anything else is just left to fester on your brush ... not to mention it's not good for the hairs on your brushes either!

It is recommended to at least once to twice a week, shampoo your brushes, but you probably wear makeup more often than that so they need more cleaning than that! The best way to maintain your brushes between shampoos is to use a daily brush cleaner. It'll come in a spray bottle and you'll simply spray the brushes and stroke them in one direction on a paper towel until color stops transferring. Then, and very importantly, whether shampooing or spraying clean, always allow the brushes to dry by laying flat on its side. **If you do not do this and let them stand up, any water, shampoo, or spray that hasn't dried will drip into the base of the hairs and loosen them and lead to those annoying hairs that get left behind on your face when applying makeup!**

I highly recommend using e.l.f. cosmetics "Daily Brush Cleaner". It is only $3.00 for 8.5oz. Believe me when I tell you this is a GREAT deal. If you wear makeup daily and are a responsible brush cleaner ;), you'll be shocked by how fast this stuff can go. Especially if you're like me and have tons of brushes! The one I used to use before this was the same size, but cost $13.50! Give this a go; you won't be disappointed!
