Keep Make-Up Brushes Clean
Washing your concealer and foundation brushes on a weekly basis is a simple yet effective way of avoiding clogging of the pores. Any brushes used around the eyes can be washed twice a month whilst all other brushes should be cleaned once a month. Cleaning is easy; simply get a drop of mild shampoo in your palm, moisten the brush bristles with warm water and then rub the bristles into your hand. Rinse and dry with a towel and your brush is ready to use again!
