    How to: Clean Your Makeup Brushes

    Using baby shampoo would be wonderful, its very gentle, but just make sure you disinfect the brushes to get any last germs off them

    How to: Clean Your Makeup Brushes

    I would only use one at a time, thus cleaning one each time, but if you need to use both sides I would simply spray a disinfectant on one, then fully clean other side (wait til its dry) then do the other side. Retractable brushes are tricky, I would follow the same process but if you can some how really clean the inside that would be ideal.

    How to: Clean Your Makeup Brushes

    From being a makeup junkie & from going to school for Cosmetology and Master Esthetics I have learned many different ways of handling & cleaning your cosmetic brushes. Their is not only one “right†way but their is most definitely many wrong ways to clean them! I remember one night we were all doing some cleaning and one girl (bless her heart) wanted to clean the makeup brushes; lets just say she had no idea how. She got all the makeup brushes from the makeup station & put them in water (yes underwater) and let them “Soak†then she just left them in the sink for the weekend… in a open bag. Then when Monday came around I saw them still in the bag & already they had some kind of bacteria/mold growing on them! She made many errors. Do not submerge them underwater! Your going to fill the brush with water & that will make the perfect place for bacteria to harbor within the brush itself! If you leave them on their side or have the head of the brush right side up you will have water go into the brush & that will destroy the glue that holds the hairs together. (thus costing more money) She left the cleaner on the brushes; some cleaners have strong chemicals that could break down the hair or brush handle (Don’t leave it on forever) The area she put them in has high traffic, people wash their hands, clean other products with in that area. (Put them in an area that is clean as possible). Specially If you use your makeup brushes on clients, you need to clean them after every use, (if not you could possibly spread a cold, virus, acne) Now like I have said before there are many different ways to clean them, here is a way I found to clean them. Get a clean bowl or some kind of plate (so that you can put the cleaner onto it) I have seen many people use household dish soaps to clean them but I feel that may be to harsh on the hairs (specially if they are real hair) so what I use is one of my shampoos mixed with little bit of Argan oil. Then pour it into the bowl. This will get all the makeup, extra sebum (oil), dirt and etc off the brushes! You then can work (don’t man handle) them into your hand or a soft cloth; in circular motion to help break up the makeup and spread the product Look at all that makeup that came off! 4.Next gently put them under warm/cold water(Hot water can damage hairs & wooden handles) for couple minutes using that circular motion again. 5.Then get a paper Towel and gently blot dry them. (Then Spray them with a Disinfectant brush spray, just to be sure they are fully clean) 6.Lastly but maybe most important to let them dry do not put them back into your brush holder or on their sides. If you are broke at the moment like myself here is a easy way to hold them upside down. Get some common electrical tape; I use electrical tape because its likely not to leave a sticky film or take off the brush designs. Like the photo above, place the brush onto the tape. Then making sure to have the head of the brush upside down place them on the end or your desk, vanity. This may seem silly/ghetto but hey it works! Then once they have dried they are ready for the next fierce look.

    Makeup and skin problems

    For me when it comes to makeup it always goes back to the skin care; in order for us to have our makeup to be how we want, we also need our skin as health as it can be. As a Esthetician I have a seen this problem many times, what I would recommend is that you go to a local Esthetic Spa & have the professionals see what they can do to help you. I also would think a chemical peel would help, the one I would think that would be amazing is called a glycolic chemical peel, its used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off, its amazing for oily skin types. Also I would check out a product line called Control Corrective, they have great products to help balance oily skin types! I would recommend you try these three products:

    New to the Makeup World?

    So with good makeup you need a good skin care system, if you don't have healthy skin then your makeup will not work/look how you want it to. Start by figuring out what your skin type is and then once you know more about your skin you will then be able to see what products will be useful. Because if you used foundations or powders that are not right for your skin type you will not be a fan of the outcome look. Now as a Master Esthetician I have used many different lines but they one I would recommend for a starter is Control Corrective. They are easy to follow and understand plus very affordable! You don't need to buy a 200$ cream or cleanser for starting. Now time for the makeup; so with makeup there is indeed many companies and brands that are out there in the world. When I was first starting my makeup collection I just simply went to drug stores, bought the cheapest things and worked my way up to more better items. But if you really just want to dive right in then I would start buy going to your local Sephora & have the professionals help you in your adventure.In the makeup world its all about exploring and testing what you like, their is never a wrong or right place to buy from, put your foot in the water and test it!
