Makeup Brushes Tips

E-mail Print PDF

It constantly amazes me that women attempt to do their makeup with one brush. I also recently saw a television infomercial that promoted a 'wonder' brush that allowed women to apply their makeup with one brush.

The truth is, you are going to need many brushes and it may cost you a bit but it will be a good investment.

How to choose the good-quality - not necessarily expensive - brushes

A simple technique to help you buy a quality makeup brush is balance it on its very tip. Hold the brush vertically on the back of your hand, bristles down, and lightly bounce the brush to test the bristles. The bristles should only have a slight bend. If they splay, or flatten completely, then the brush will be too difficult to use, and the makeup will go everywhere except where you want it to go.

Where to source your brushes

You can find good quality makeup brushes at discount makeup stores, art and craft shops, manchester stores and makeup counters.

How to clean your brushes

The best way to clean your brushes is with brush cleaner once a week. However, if you don't have brush cleaner, try hot, soapy water or detergent. Shampoo is not probably strong enough.

Whatever product you use, rub your brush on a white plate. This way, when you clean your brush, you can see the colour on the plate. When the plate is clean and the water runs clear, you know the brush is washed.

Let it dry overnight.
