How to clean your makeup brushes

1. Remove excess color from the brush with a tissue.

2. Run brush under water just long enough to dampen the hairs.

3. Place a small amount of gentle shampoo onto the palm of your hand and swirl the dampened brush in your palm for a few moments.

4. Place the brush under warm running water with brush hairs facing down. Gently squeeze the hairs until the water runs clear.

5. Squeeze the clean brush hairs to remove any excess water.

6. Avoid soaking the brush or allowing too much water to run into the ferrule (the barrel of the brush), which will break down the glue and loosen the hairs of the brush.

7. Lay brushes flat, or with bristles at a slight downward angle, on a paper or cotton towel to dry overnight.
