Meanwhile, synthetic brushes which are mostly used for liquid applications such as foundations etc must be cleaned every week. One would marvel at the contents that seem to be hidden in these brushes on a closer observation.

  • Next, take out the brush one at a time from the water and gently use your hand to massage gently on the bristles to bring out dirts

  • Rinse the brush preferably under running water till the water looks clean

  • Pat the bristles dry with the towel

  • Next lie the brushes on a smooth surface with the handles resting on the wooden stick or any object so that the brush does not lay flat to prevent water from entering into the joining of the bristles to the handles so as not to destroy d gum used in holding the bristles together

NOTE: If you are more of a sponge person for the application of your foundation, gently massage the sponge with your fingers in soapy water so that you get all the dirt out. Do not forget that sponges do not stay so long so do not wash with pity so as not to harbor germs in your equipment. Sponges are to be changed after 4 months.
