I cannot describe
how important cleaning you make up brushes on a regular basis is! Girls we use
it almost every day and i don’t know where to begin.
Let’s Go
step by step, shall we? Makeup brushes are an investment and we want to make
sure you get all you can from them. Makeup brushes can be a breeding ground for
bacteria. Think of how much bacteria is on your face daily.  Bacteria and natural oils transmit onto your
brushes every time they come in contact with your skin, And if we are using it
on other people?? Friends?? Family?? Or clients !!! You may be picking up germs
and transferring them onto other people including you. (Let me stop with the
over load of drama :P)

Regular Cleaning
Will Help Remove:
1.        Old Makeup
2.        Dirt and Debris
3.        Dead Skin Cells
4.        Bacteria
5.        Oils
Another
benefit of keeping your makeup brushes clean is softness. Makeup build up on
your brushes can make them feel scratchy. Cleaning your brushes on a regular
basis will help keep them soft and supple. This is especially great for people
with sensitive skin.
So how often
should you clean your makeup brushes? Preferably, once a week if not more, this
will help maintain your brushes lifespan. Wash your brushes at night and allow
them to dry so they will be ready for the next day, or right after your apply your
makeup. You just want to make sure you allow enough time for them to dry
thoroughly before using.
Now that
your brushes are perfectly clean, we need to focus on another aspect of thoroughly
cleaning your brushes, the handle! When you use your makeup brushes you are
transferring germs, bacteria and even makeup onto the handles of your brushes.
Remember, anything that is on the handle of your brushes is being passed to
everything else you touch. To clean the handle of your brushes, pour Dettol onto a paper towel and rub over the handle of your brushes. This will
not only clean but disinfect the handles as well. 
Another great tip to keep
your brushes looking great is to apply clear fingernail polish over the numbers
or names that are written on the brush. This will keep the name or number of
the brushes from eventually wearing off and make the brushes easy to
identify.  Some brushes can feel stiff
even after washing them. You want your brushes to feel soft and luxurious
against your skin. If this is the case, take a small amount of conditioner in
your hand and massage it gently into the bristles and rinse in lukewarm water
and lay flat to dry. This will give the bristles a soft, velvety feel to them
Some of us
might be using sponge to apply our makeup. 
Now let’s not forget them.
Make up sponge
are just like brushes.  Using dish
detergent does make it a little easier when cleaning these because you can
directly apply it to the sponge. Cleaning sponge does take a little bit longer
because of the rinsing process. 
 
And there
you have it, easy and inexpensive ways to make sure your makeup brushes and
sponge are clean and well protected. Remember, cleaning your brushes is vital
in helping preserve your makeup brushes.

I've found a few ways to clean my brushes over the years. At first, I just cleaned them with water. That didn't work too well, especially with the gel stuff caked on them.
