How to clean the makeup brush?


1. Wet the brush head with cold water and tap first, which can slow down the adhesion of cosmetics on the brush. Pay attention not to let the water get on the handle to prevent the water from entering into the inner part of the handle through the gap.

2. Use the brush head to brush soap, and then circle on the palm of your hand. Don't use too much force. It's better not to scrub directly with your hands.

3. Finally, clean the foam. After washing, squeeze out the water in the brush by hand as much as possible, and then shake it gently. Dry the handle with a towel.

4. Put the cosmetic brush into the protective cover of the cosmetic brush from the handle end, fix it at the position of the brush head, and place the brush head downward to dry.

② Alcohol: it's also easy to wash. It's faster to dry than detergent, but for me, it's more convenient to get detergent.

③ Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo & Shower Gel: if there is not much cream left in the fiber brush / the use time is short, this one is more convenient to wash.
