The M.A.C brush cleanser – WHY use it and HOW?!
BRUSHES are more important than products- I always say that!
However, keeping your brushes clean is a MUST– although it’s a hassle & time consuming.
Well… WHY DO YOU HAVE TO CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES?
After each use, lots of bacteria/germs/oils & color deposits form on the brush- making it sticky/dirty/filthy for your next application.
My rule with brushes- always wash them once a week (with shampoo), but daily, you have to cleanse them with a cleanser to help in removing the dirty germs & color!
I have tried many other brands- but always the best is – MAC.
MAC’s cleanser is simply amazing- huge bottle which takes ages to finish… leaves the brushes clean… brush friendly .. keeping the brushes supersoft.
Keep in mind: this cleanser is NOT just to remove the color deposits… IT’S A DISINFECTANT… meaning it will santize your brush hygenically- which is great!
How to clean you dirty brush?!
Take a tissue, lay it on a flat surface. Apply a tiny bit of the cleanser on the tissue.
Take your brush & go back and forth in all motions on that tissu. The picture below shows the brush before cleaning (dirty brush).
You will immediatly see how the color transferred from the brush to the tissue.
Notice how the brush is clean now! Back to it’s natural color
Ofcorse if you are using a bigger brush, more cleanser would be needed and you will need to go back and forth a lot more than smaller brushes. Below is a bigger dirty brush.
And now it’s clean! Although, check out the bigger mess of dirt it transferred
After that, you need to wipe the clean brush with a dry tissue to remove any excess wetness.
Your brush should dry in no more than 5 minutes & you can use it again!
