How do I clean my cosmetic brushes?
Brushes are often overlooked. We use them then simply throw them
back in our make-up case not caring much for the condition we
leave them. This is usually the reason why the brushes we buy do
not last as long as we hoped for. Armando's Brushes last a long
time because they are made with sable bristles and even with the
use of high-quality materials, Armando's Brushes would not last
much longer than lower quality brushes without the proper care.
So what is proper brush care and what are the benefits it will
give you besides longevity? When applying your make-up, your
brushes mix with your cosmetics as well as the oils on your
skin. Over time, this could cause the bristles of the brush to
clump together causing your make-up application to not go as
smoothly as you would like. That fine line you like for your
eyeliner may not be obtainable with a dirty brush. Not caring
for your brushes may also cause different shadows to mix
together in your brush creating a color that you never intended
Okay, so now you know what happens when we don't care for our
brushes. So how do we clean them?
To clean your brushes, run them under tepid water. (Always hold
the brush under the water with the handle pointing up so as not
to damage the brush.) Add a small amount of mild shampoo to your
index finger then emulsify (by rubbing your index finger and
thumb together). Gently squeeze the shampoo into your brush.
Rinse your fingers and brush. When thoroughly rinsed, gently
wring out the remaining moisture from the brush while forming
the bristles and set on a towel to dry.
With these simple steps, you could be another of Armando's
customers whose brushes last them over twenty years! Just think
of the money you will save!
