How can I clean the brushes?

– You want to use an unscented, pure, white soap for this. Dial or Ivory would be ideal. With lukewarm water, get your brush completely wet. Once your brush has been saturated, swirl the brush onto the bar of soap until it lathers up nicely. Then, rinse the brush in lukewarm water. Make sure you don’t use water that is to hot or too cold. Also, when rinsing your brushes, don’t get water above the shaft or metal part. If you do it will eventually cause rust which will cause the bristles of the brush to fall out. Gently squeeze out any excess water from the brush and lay it flat on a clean towel and allow them to air dry for at least 6 to 8 hours.

You can use shampoo or any mild liquid soap.

you can also use shampoo or soap, lather, rinse, let dry naturally (air dry) by lying flat. I really like Aveda Shampure or Philosophy Purity Made Simple for cleansing the brushes.

Cleaning the brushes is so easy. Cover FX makes a great brush cleaner or any tea tree oil soap is also great for washing & cleansing the brushes. Let them air dry over night.

The case for this brush set is definitely man-made, no mistake about it. After opening the case and removing the brushes, I got rid of the case and put the brushes in a small bag I already owned.

I'm not sure if I can answer that but I will tell you this, the leather is well made because it's durable. Does not feel cheap. The slots/pouches for the brushes are still in good condition; no tears.

Are these full size brushes?

answer 1
Not quite. Since this is a "travel" brush set, ALL the brush handles are somewhat smaller than the full-size brushes. But this is not necessarily a bad thing- shorter handles give you better control during application. The entire set, including the case is 7"×3.75", so the longest brush can't be more than 6"or so tall.

the handles are slightly shorter than most brushes, and only the concealer brush and the rounded eyeshadow brush have heads smaller than normal. all the rest of the brushes have full size heads.

Would they work with Bare Minerals?

Yes, these would work prefectly with any Bare Minerals product. The powder/complexion brush would work great with the Bare Minerals foundation.

answer 2
Yes these brushes would work well with bare minerals or any mineral or powder foundation for that matter. The concealer brush can be used to provide more coverage to trouble spots. The eyeshadow brushes work great with bare minerals eyeshadow and the angled blush brush is very similar to the one bare minerals sells to go with its blush.

The powder brushes will work well with bareminerals, The large brush has looser bristels than the blush brush and creats a fine coverage, try the blush brush for a fuller coverage.

Question
Is this a good set for a beginner?
I've been wearing make up since I was 13 and I'm now in college. I'm wanting to get a good set of makeup brushes instead of using cheapies that have been falling apart or what comes with the makeup itself (sephora newbie lol). Would this be a good starting point, or do you know of a set that may be better? I've also looked at Kat Von D's as well.

This is one of the first set of brushes I had ever received. I got it as a gift at the age of 13, when I was new to makeup and it diffidently helped me learn a little bit about makeup application.

i'm totally a beginner myself! i bought this set on July 8th, 2011. I didn't want to spend too much money on a REALLY expensive set especially since i don't always know what i'm doing. this is a GREAT set and it has everything you need. the brushes feel really great against my skin and this is the perfect beginner set in my opinion.

Question
Are the brush tips synthetic or animal hair?
I would prefer synthetic, being vegetarian, and would also like to know how durable they are as I would be using them for stage makeup.

i know the concealer brush (orange tip) is synthetic and i think the rest are natural. as a rule of thumb, liquid or cream textured makeup, should be used with synthetic brushes so the brushes don't absorb any of the makeup and will last longer. natural brushes are fine for everything else.
these will last pretty well if you take good care of them.
also keep in mind this is a travel set so the brushes are small, so not good for quick application if you need that for stage makeup.

Four of the five brushes are made of natural hair, and one is synthetic. They seem quite durable to me.

the synthetic hair is actually very good for stage makeup. I do dance and in dance there is ALOT of stage makeup. I hope that helps :). And it does everything you would expect animal hair to do so its practically the same buti think a little better.

Yes, the name of each brush is printed in red on the handle of every brush. But since the brush handles are black, the red print is a little hard to read.

Pull off the top of the lip brush and then put it on the opposite end from where you took it off. Then push it in and the brush will pop out.

To open the lip brush, place the cap on the end like you would a pen. It took me a little to figure this out too. By placing the cap on the end, it presses the lip brush out. The Blush brush should be applied short bristles forward just along the cheek bones to really accentuate them.

I believe that most of them are natural fibers except the blondest which I believe to be taklon (synthetic bristle made from nylon). They remind me of fitch hairs (a type of sable).
