For Deep Cleaning
While I’ve used shampoo in the past to clean my makeup brushes, Ross recommends IT Cosmetics’ Confidence in a Cleanser cleansing serum and a wash cloth.
“Place a wash cloth in a clean sink, then dispense a few drops of Confidence In A Cleaner onto the towel. Turn on warm water and let it saturate the towel. As the water is running, swirl your brushes on the towel, until the brush is clean and product is no longer showing on the towel.”
Ross warns against letting your brushes soak in the water and suggests using a hand towel to absorb excess water from the bristles.
“Place the towel on a flat surface and lay the brushes flat on the towel to dry. This will help them retain their shape and continue to provide you with a flawless application of product,” Ross explained. “Never dry your brushes standing up because you do not want liquid seeping into the handle and collecting bacteria.”
