Good maintenance of brushes is essential to their longevity. At the end of the day it is important to clean makeup brushes with care to preserve their lifetime. Here are eight easy steps to keep professional makeup brushes clean. Some of our favorite helpful tools include the ESUM 13 Stylist for combing brush hairs and Brush Guards to reshape brushes. We also love the Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser for cleaning hard to remove products and stains from brushes and sponges. After cleansing, brushes can be quickly disinfected using Cosmetology Complete Care.
