BEAUTY TIP OF THE DAY :HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR MAKE UP BRUSHES
Here's the deal: Makeup brushes can harbor bacteria that cause skin irritations, breakouts and even eye infections! Which is Kind of the opposite of what you want to achieve with your beauty regimen, no? Sidestep that mess with regular brush cleaning. But just how often?
Makeup expert Bridget O'Neill recommends you sterilize your brushes at least once a week. With that settled, let's move on to the pro products the beauty buff keeps in her own makeup bag.
If you don't want to spring for a product used exclusively for brushes, you can also use any gentle antibacterial cleanser, like O'Neill's favorite, Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash. Or if you're a real budget babe, we've been told that using a dab of shampoo works just as well.
As for when it's time to replace your beloved brush, O'Neill claims it's easy to tell. "When the bristles begin to fall out and no longer feel soft, it's time to toss 'em and go shopping!"
