Keep your tools in shape, just like the pros do.
To clean makeup brushes, pour a mild household liquid soap or baby shampoo into the palm of your hand and mix with water. Use your hand as a cup for the warm, soapy water and swirl brushes in your palm until they are clean. Rinse well, then gently squeeze excess water from the brush and let air-dry. Don't soak brushes in the sink. Too much time in water can loosen the bristles and ruin your brush!
