After some time of utilizing makeup sponges, the face’s makeup, germs and natural oil will begin to gather over it. Cleansing your makeup tools on a regular basis disposes off the bacteria over it and also stops your different makeup shades from blending into one another. Below are some tips for you on how to clean up your makeup tools properly and take care of them.
CLEANING A MAKEUP SPONGE
Wet your sponge using lukewarm water.
Utilize a bit of gentle soap or shampoo and rub it over your sponge using your fingers.
Wash your sponge until the lather is completely washed off.
DRY IT OUT
Dry up your sponge with a neat towel and let it get completely dry via natural air. You can also use it straightaway if you wish to use a wet sponge.
Make sure to clean your sponge after using it for a few times as it will keep your sponge in a proper condition and also prevent it from any bacteria.
CLEANING UP MAKEUP BRUSHES
Wash the hair of your brushes. Make sure to run them under water that is moving downwards to prevent the water from coming directly over the bottom of your makeup brush as that can destroy the gum and reduce the lifetime of the makeup brush.
Try to clean up your brush hair with a baby or any other mild shampoo. Work until there is foam over it and wash it off till the lather completely goes away.
After cleaning up you brushes, you must sterilize it. Mix a 1 part of vinegar into 2 parts of water in a bowl to create a solution. Rustle the makeup brush about inside the bowl for at least two minutes making sure not to plunge it completely. Wash it with clean water.
DRY THEM OUT
Reform the hair and keep the brushes over a towel throughout the night to dry them.
CLEANING METALLIC TOOLS
For metallic tools namely eyelash curlers, tweezers and cuticle nippers, rinse them using an antibacterial liquid soap.
After rinsing, clean the tool using an alcohol saturated cotton ball. Dry out the tool for some time before re-using it.
Make sure to wash your makeup tools and sponges at least twice a month to make them last long. Store your makeup tools in a neat dish to protect them from bacteria.
