The Importance of Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes

When was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? If you can’t remember the last time you have washed them, then it has probably been way too long. Consistently washing your makeup brushes keeps your skin sanitary and prevents irritation.

April Garcia, one of Casting Coin’s favorite makeup artists, emphasized the importance of cleaning makeup brushes.

“One of the first things a model is going to look at on your makeup station is your brushes, and whether they are clean or not. Keeping them clean, sanitized, and organized is going to keep your model safe, happy, and confident in your work. Now more than ever, it’s important to have a sanitizing routine for your makeup brushes. Using a strong brush cleaner on set, do daily or weekly deeply cleans with soap and water, and consider investing in a UV light box for an extra layer of cleanliness.”
