How to maintain your Makeup Brushes

Now after blogging about the best brushes, it's extremely crucial to learn how to take care of your brushes. 
Basically, a brush should be washed once a month with a special shampoo that would not cause any damage on the brush. There are some products that you can use to clean them weekly that wont damage your brushes as well.
Her are the products you need.
Bobbi Brown Conditioning Brush Cleaner

Other than the lousy packaging as a bottle with a pump would have worked better, this is one of the best brush cleanser I've used. It sure does deep cleanse.

Johnson's Baby Shampoo

  Believeyou me, this product works as good as any other product out there. Baby shampoo is mentioned in Bobbi Brown's book as the product to use to clean your brushes.
If you don't want to splurge on a blush cleanser this is the product for you.

Bobbi Brown Brush Cleansing Spray

I love this product. Now you can't fully depend on this product you still have to wash your brushes once a month. You can use this product weekly or between applications to clean your brush. I really like the fact that it drys fast doesn't damp your brush. It can be used on both natural and synthetic Brushes.
Spray on a tissue paper, then swipe the brush on the tissue to clean.

Blender Cleanser

I use the Blender Cleanser to obviously clean my Beauty Blender. Haven't found a product that works better.

Since I listed the product, I'll let you know the right way to wash your brushes. First, apply the shampoo on your palm, wet the brush (do not immerse the head of the brush in soap as the brush is glued to the base and it will come apart), then swirl the bristles on your palm until it's covered in soap. Rise with water repeat if necessary. I usually shampoo them twice. Then, squeeze out excess and reshape the brush head. Lay flat on the counter with the bristle hanging of the counter, so it can dry into a perfect shape.
Store your brushes in a bag or case.
