Tell me how to take care of my new makeup brush. Do I wash it and how often?
There are a billion fancy brush cleaners you can buy – but on the flip side, you could do the bare inexpensive minimum and simply spritz the brushes with isopropyl alcohol to decontaminate. However, that might not add a lot of life to that Real Techniques blender you blew your pretty little allowance on.
I do the gentle, happy medium. Just use a tiny drop of dish soap and water. I like to put it in a bowl and put all the brushes in once every week or two and just let them soak. They air-dry nicely here in the desert, but you might want to paper-towel-shape them dry in the humidity.

(Admittedly, I wasn’t always so low-maintenance on the brush cleansing front – I used to love one by Garden Botanika, but it seems they’ve taken it off the market. Sniffle.)
