Q: How often should I clean my makeup brushes?
A: Experts recommend that you clean your makeup brushes once a week to maintain performance, ensure hygiene, and prevent the buildup of product residue and bacteria. While our bristles are antimicrobial, if too much residue buildup occurs it creates a separation between the bacteria and the brush's active antimicrobial properties.
Q: What is the best way to clean my makeup brushes?
A: Gentle hand washing is usually the best way to preserve your brushes. First wet the bristles under lukewarm water. Apply mild soap or brush cleaner on the palm of your hand or silicone cleaning pad. Swirl the brush head lightly creating a lather. Repeat as necessary. Cleanse and wash the soap out fully from the brush head. Squeeze out any excess water and place your brush on a dry towel for drying. For instant cleaning and quick reuse, you can use Easy Instant Brush Cleaner from UVÉ Beauty.
