Size really does matter: To simplify, makeup brushes with short and dense bristles will give you full coverage. On the other hand, makeup brushes with long bristles will result to sheer application of makeup products.
There’s no need to buy super expensive brush cleaners to deep clean your makeup brushes. Trust us when we say that using gentle cleansers you already have at home (i.e. white bar soap, baby shampoo, liquid soap etc.) are good enough. All you have to do is wet the brush head, create a lather using your choice of readily available cleanser. Rinse the brush, face down under gentle water until the water runs clear. Don’t soak your brushes because chances are, the water will seep through the ferrule and handle. This will break down or loosen the glue holding them together leaving the brushes falling apart. Lay the brushes flat on a clean towel to dry. You can put pencils or pens underneath the towel to let the handles hang off a little so that it will drain the remaining water faster.
