Makeup Monday: Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes

Local News

While it’s often a tedious task, cleaning your makeup brushes isn’t as hard as it may seem. Not only can unwashed brushes contain bacteria but makeup build-up can ruin the bristles over time.  Owner of Monti Makeup Artistry, Christy Monti says there’s two ways to clean your brushes; spot clean and deep clean.  

Monti says you should spot clean your brushes once a week while deep cleaning with a cleanser every two weeks. Christy says you can also mix in olive oil with your cleanser to get off stubborn or waterproof makeup.
