“Not washing your brushes, is the equivalent to not washing your face,” said acclaimed beauty YouTuber and EM Cosmetics founder, Michelle Phan. Makeup brushes are a key essential to attaining a flawless and perfected makeup application.

However, through frequent use, they develop product build-up. Makeup brushes and sponges host a variety of unwanted impurities, such as dirt, bacteria, and oil (sebum), all of which may prove to be harmful to the health of your skin.

Eye shadow, foundation, blush, and powder makeup brushes can easily transfer impurities to the skin if left unwashed and uncared for, leading to an increased risk of acne breakouts.

There’s a simple solution, through the use of everyday household items such as, coconut oil, olive oil, and dishwashing liquid, clean, soft and fluffy brushes are merely one wash away.

Make a habit out of maintaining the cleanliness of your makeup tools to ensure your desired makeup application and less problematic skin.
