I mix 75% gentle dish soap and 25% virgin olive oil in a small dish, rinse my brush quickly with water, and quickly swirl it around in the mixture. Dish soap may not be as gentle as professional brush cleansers, but so it doesn't dry out the brushes I use the virgin olive oil to condition them. It gets the makeup out in a few seconds. I've been doing this for years and my brushes look brand new.

Hi,

I clean my brushes with a professional brush cleaning solution. Sephora has a line of solutions made for brushes, as do other companies. Since they're specially designed for brushes, these cleaner help keep the brushes performing well. I blot the brushes dry and let them air dry overnight. I have brushes that have lasted for years, although I take very good care of them. My oldest brushes may be older than ten years old, and they look like new. Of course, during the years I've added brushes becasue those older brushes weren't designed for the products that have been more recently marketed.

Hope this helps.

I use baby shampoo. I pour a little in a coffee mug and add warm water and swirl the brushes around and then rinse w/ regular water.
I leave then on a towel to dry overnight.

The brush case has pockets for each brush to be placed in. Then a little silver flaps covers the brush itself. The whole thing folds together and stays put with hidden magnets. I have never had a problem with it opening and having brushes fall out. It's a wonderful little setup.

Question
Why does cleaning my powder brush mess it up?
So, I got these brushes a year ago for Christmas, and I love them dearly. I try to take good care of them, so I clean them reguarly. My usual method is extra virgin olive oil and either baby shampoo or dishsoap. It works well on each brush but after they dry, the only brush that doesn't regain it's proir texture is the powder brush.Instead of being wide and fluffy, the hairs clump together and it looks dirtier than before. I tried that hitting against your wrist in circular motions to "open it up" but nothing works.. What's wrong with it?

I would just use the sephora brush shampoo. I use the daily brush shampoo & my brushes are still just as soft as when I bought them. Maybe because they're synthetic they dont take the olive oil as well?

There's nothing wrong with the brush I would suggest buying Sephora's brush cleaner...for some reason it works better than regular cleansers worth the price. Since face powders are slightly creamy what happening is residue is still there and it's clumping the bristles together. Either cut the olive oil for just that brush and rinse the brush more thoroughly or buy their cleanser...that's all I use.

It could have been too much olive oil. Even with noodles if you use to much it will still clump together. Sephora makes a liquid brush cleaner. I would purchase it next time. I have it and it works great on my set!

You can use the large brush the first brush pictured above for powder, or blush, even bronzer but I would not suggest it for foundation. The second brush featured is for foundation. You always want to start out with small amounts of foundation and blend forst then re-apply to the brush adn comtinue. This way all the liquid gets absorbed and you don't get lines or what I hate and that is the two-toned look!! Where parts of your face have make up and others don't. Hope this tip helps!

How to wash these brushes?
Does regular soap and water have any effect of the integrity of the antibacterial compound used to treat the bristles? What is the recommended washing routine for these? I just want to make sure I don't ruin the brushes or strip them of the special compound. Thanks so much!!

Use a daily brush spray cleaner after every use, and weekly/bi weekly use a brush formulated shampoo. DO NOT use regular soap, it will leave residue on the brushes, and is far to harsh on the fibers.

I asked the same question at my local Sephora and was told that because these brushes are made with synthetic bristles treated with an anti-bacterial solution washing them doesn't strip them of their anti-bacterial properties. However, after probing a little deeper (after all, it's not the bristles but the product that stays within them that produces bacteria) the reps at Sephora said that basically because these brushes are synthetic that makes them anti-bacterial. I am not convinced. Product that remains in brushes after use plus natural oils and bacteria from the face MUST be washed out of brushes regularly. No amount of synthetic fibers will get rid of buildup within the brushes. I hope this helps.

If you are using a moist product, like using a lip brush in lipstick, you should clean the brush every time you use it. You don't absolutely need to clean brushes that you are using with powder before using every time. However, keeping your brushes clean can limit the amount of bacteria on you brushes (and on your face!) which can help limit break outs. It can also help to clean your brushes between putting different colors on. This will help you make sure that you are putting on color that you think you are putting on, instead of a mix of yesterday's color and today's color.

I personally would clean any new brushes purchased in store or online before touching my face with them. ESPECIALLY IN STORE! Sephora has their brushes for sale out in the open for anyone to touch and help themselves. Hands are very dirty by nature and you just don't know where peoples' hands have been.

Think about it this way. You buy a new set of dishes. You take them out of the box and they have card board box dust all over them. Are you going to clean them before eating off of them or just have some dusty flavor added to your food?
