Cleaning your makeup brushes regularly not only removes product buildup, it also kills bacteria and keeps the bristles soft. Many suggest to clean your brushes at least once a month.
You can clean your makeup brushes naturally and avoid buying specialized cleaning products. Mix two parts warm water and one part vinegar. If you like suds, you can stir in a drop of dish detergent or baby shampoo in your cleaning solution. Rinse well with warm water. Make sure to reform the brushes to their original shape before lying flat on a towel to dry overnight.
