When was the last time you cleaned your beauty blenders and makeup brushes? Can’t remember? This piece really is for you.
You need to clean your tools because, besides bacteria, brushes and blenders also accumulate dead skin cells and oil, which can clog your pores and lead to dull or broken out skin.
Clean makeup tools apply makeup better. Even the best makeup can become patchy when applied with a dirty brush or blender.
With that being said, here are 2 different methods to get clean beauty blenders for your foundation application.
Method 1- Cleaning with soap
Using just water to get a clean beauty blender will not work. You need to add soap to the mix in order to actually get a clean tool.
- Squeeze your beauty blender under running water until it expands and is completely soaked.
- Squirt the soap directly onto the sponge and begin massaging, pressing, and pushing it into the palm of your wet hand. If you’re using bar soap, rub the soap directly onto the sponge, working it into a lather.
- Once you start to see that the lather has turned colours (the makeup coming off the sponge), rinse thoroughly under running water
- If it still looks a little stained, you can repeat the process
