Cleansing your makeup brushes is a crucial step that can often be forgotten or postponed too long. Skipping this vital step will not only cause your brushes to not last as long, but it will also prevent the best application of the products themselves. Not to mention the bacteria growth and possible skin irritations and acne that comes from smearing said bacteria all over your face. #AmIRight?
I've posted about my favorite way to clean my brushes before, but today I'm snooping out a fun new tool to aid in the process even further. Sigma Beauty makes these unique cleansing gloves and sink mats, that protect your hands from taking a beating while scrubbing, and they also help to get the job done quicker and more efficiently.
You should be cleaning your liquid/cream
brushes every 2-3 weeks, and your powder brushes every 6-8 weeks.
The gloves and mats are made from a high quality silicone that have many different textures built in. The textured bits are designed to loosen dirt and makeup from your brushes and then to help reshape the brush before it dries.
I love using this, and it really does make the job quicker and more fun, while saving my hands from getting to raw and dry. I have the Express Glove which works great but sometimes can be hard to get a handle on once things get slippery. Next time I buy, I'll go for the sink mat which has suction cups and requires no hands at all!
So if you want to take better care of your brushes, I highly reccomend this gizmo! Thanks for reading, xo
