The Care And Feeding Of Your Mineral Makeup Brushes

[Updated 2019]

So, you have bought  a fabulous brush for your mineral makeup, have you?

My goodness, it wasn't inexpensive either!

I suggest you take good care of your brush; in fact, all of your makeup brushes - as they are your tools to help your makeup nestle onto your skin.

Just so.

And it really is as simple as cleaning them on a regular basis.

This is a small investment to make in your brush health, and your skin health as well.

In talking with women about their makeup tools, I am not surprised any more to hear woman say something to the extent of ...

"Oh, I don't think I have ever cleaned my makeup brushes!"

Benefits of Clean Makeup Brushes

The truth is, a clean, well cared for makeup brush will keep your skin clearer, and help your mineral makeup to go on all the smoother.

How to Clean Your Mineral Makeup Brushes

Add some warm water to your sink or a bowl, swish some natural soap in and perhaps add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil.

 Swish and Squeeze

Next, simply swish your brush in sink/bowl until you can squeeze it and no more clouds of embedded makeup comes out.

The soap will help to clean out the left over mineral particles and suspend them in the water, away from the brush, and the Tea Tree Oil will disinfect your brush.

Almost done!

You'll want to give your brush a good rinse in cool running water to ensure that all of the soap is washed out and make sure it is ready to dry off.

Be sure to gently agitate through the bristles to make sure that all of the soap is rinsed out and doesn't leave a residue between those lush, tightly packed bristles.

 Time To Dry

Last but not least, it's time to dry your freshly cleaned brushes.

Make sure to lay your brushes flat on their side while they are drying out (NOT upright!) or the water will pool in the handle and could loosen the bristles.

Be sure to not dry your brushes upside down either, or the bristles could dry in a funky shape as a result.

 Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil, also known as Melaleuca, has been used for centuries to heal cuts, wounds and skin infections.

It has twelve times the antiseptic power of phenol, so it packs some strong immune building properties.

It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-infectious, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, an immune-stimulant, and insecticidal.

It promotes cleansing and purity. (Reference Guide for Essential Oils, Higley) 

Can you see how it will help keep your brushes clean, not to mention the health of your skin?

Not a bad idea to use it to clean your toothbrush as well! (I do)
