How Often Do You Really Need to Clean Your Makeup Brushes?

How Often Do You Really Need to Clean Your Makeup Brushes?

We're true makeup fanatics, but there's one part of our routine that we actively detest — washing our brushes. We know we have to, but not only does it take up a lot of our time (which we could be using for Netflix binge-watching!), it could actually damage our favorite tools if we do it wrong. We reached out to Jenny Patinkin, celebrity makeup artist and founder of luxury brush line Lazy Perfection to get her top tips on brush care, cleansing, and more.

If you're more of a skimmer, let this be the one fact you learn: do not share your brushes with anyone else. "Coming in contact with your own oils and germs is one thing, but being exposed to someone else's bacteria is entirely another," Jenny warned. Once you know the danger of a dirty brush, you'll want to clean your tools daily! Here's how to get the job done.
