Today, we will talk about the importance of cleansing brushes regularly. It is a vital part of everyone’s makeup routine. The amount of bacteria that our brushes are exposed to daily, especially when left unprotected in an open space, which is the usual case, is a horrible thing when it comes to our skin.
Think about that for a second, let it sink in. After a cleansed and moisturized face, the next step is a fresh and flawless makeup application. The face comes in contact with a dirty brush that applies not only makeup but bacteria and dust on the face. Hmm... No wonder adult acne is on the rise lately. Especially with liquid products that grow bacteria quicker, this practice should be, if not a daily ritual, an often one! Furthermore, makeup will not apply flawlessly and evenly on the face when using an already dirty brush because it will have residue on it from your previous applications.
A quick spray with this product we're talking about and a weekly, deep cleansing of brushes is essential. This cleanser is one of the most sought after brush makeup cleansers in the makeup community, one of cinema secret’s best seller products!
One of the constant struggles while on the job as a makeup artist is having to clean, sanitize and dry brushes, all while working on different clients at the same time. It is a tested product that just WORKS.
Curious how to use it? Simply pour a little in a bowl, make sure it covers 1/4 of your brush bristles or in the tin that comes with the cleanser, swirl your brushes and wipe them clean on a paper towel! Alternatively, spray directly on the brush with the spray bottle and likewise swirl it on a paper towel. The brush will be soft and ready to use right after cleaning. It is possible to use to clean spatulas and palettes too, as it sanitizes and removes any makeup residue.
It has a strong vanilla scent to it, but evaporates quickly. The best thing about this product is that it dries in seconds, is rinse free and sanitizes brushes at the same time. It even takes away old stains from used makeup brushes. It comes in handy in a small spray bottle, for everyday use and it comes in bigger bottles with a tin to carry with or keep on the makeup vanity. Don’t forget, once a week or two, it's imperative to deep clean brushes with water and a preferred soap.
For us makeup artists, it is an effective product that cannot leave our kit and cleanses our brushes in a matter of seconds. This is important especially when working a job that requires makeup application on different clients, simultaneously, in a small amount of time. It's not a requirement to be a professional to use it! At the end of the day, it'll save us from purchasing less makeup brushes, since the ones we own will be squeaky clean and ready to use on the spot. It is a win-win situation! We have tried plenty of brush cleansers throughout the years and this is by far one of the best out there.
I wouldn’t recommend using it with a beautyblender or a sponge type applicator just because they have their own cleansers that help elongate the life-span of the sponge.

- If you don't want to purchase both the big bottle and the small spray one, you can always fill an empty spray bottle and use it for your convenience! This brush cleanser will literally make your life easier.
Don't forget to clean your brushes!
