Cleaning makeup brushes often is important because brushes that are not cleaned frequently can harbor bacteria and cause skin irritation and breakouts. Every so often I use a shampoo and clean my brushes thoroughly but to reduce the amount of deep cleaning I have to do I use a cleaner and disinfectant after each use.
Recently I have been using the Parian Spirit Professional Brush Cleaner. The cleaner comes in a spray bottle and is designed for quick cleaning when you don’t have time to wait around for your brushes to dry. The formula uses citrus oil to condition and the scent is fresh and makes brushes smell amazing!
Parian Spirit is environmentally friendly and cleans and disinfects brushes and makeup tools of all types and sizes. To use all you do is spray your brush while rotating and wipe dry on a terrycloth or paper towel. For deeper cleansing you can soak the bristles in the cleaner, swirl the brush around and wipe dry.
This product is great at removing residual liquid products, powders, shadows and even glitter. You can also use it to remove eye lash glue and to clean your false lashes before reuse. Removing buildup and reshaping your brushes will keep them working efficiently and help them last longer.
The cleaner comes in a few sizes, I have the 2oz travel size but a little goes a long way. For a list of U.S retailers click HERE and for a list of international suppliers click HERE. The size I have is sold for about $6.50 but prices may vary by retailer and location. If you are ever at a makeup show and you see Parian I would definitely recommend picking up some of this cleaner.
