How to Properly Care for Cosmetic Brushes

For everyday care 

After using, lightly tap the brush on the back of your hand or arm.
If you are worried about residual color, lightly wipe off the brush with a tissue. 


When concerned about a bad smell, or when the hair can be lumped, wash it in lukewarm water. After letting the hair soak in the warm water, add a proper amount of cleaning soap for brush. Once it has soaked enough to gently squeeze the grime out from root to tip, wash the brush off. If any cleaning soap are left in the brush, it will deteriorate and become more difficult to use. Therefore, take care to fully wash out the cleaning soap. After a thorough rinsing, take a comb and gently comb the tip of the brush, starting at the root of the bristles and working up to the tip.Then, taking a towel, dry the moisture from the brush and let it dry in the shade with shaping the tip using your fingertips. Avoid drying in direct sunlight or using a hair dryer as this will weaken the hairs. 

Brushing out with a comb

Large brushes such as face and cheek brushes will last even longer if they are carefully brushed. Normally, please brush from root to tip using a coarse comb. Because suddenly brushing out tangles from the root of the brush will break the hair, please untangle it by starting from the tip of the brush and gradually working downward. By using the comb in this way, the grime and cosmetic material in the tip of the brush will be scraped out, leaving it clean.  

How to store

Lay the similar brushes horizontally on top of each other so that their bristles don't kink. It is also convenient to place the brushes with the bristles face-up in a large mug or glass. Please be careful of mold and store in a blase with low humidity. 

Do you know that make-up brushes have a limited life span?

After being used for too long the tip gets wider, it becomes worn out and loses its strength.
If you feel a prickling sensation while using it, it means the brush hairs are breaking. Also, if you feel like the powder is not being applied right, it means it's time to change your brush. This rule applies to cheek brushes, eye shadow brushes, and all kinds of brushes.
If you find it hard to judge these changes for yourself, we recommend you change your brush once a year. In order to extend a brush' life span you should also take adequate care of it on a daily basis.
