With proper care your Morris & Luca brush will be your best makeup partner for a long time!
Why brush cleaning makes the difference:
- When you use your brushes, makeup, oil and dirt are built up in the bristles. Cleaning your makeup brushes regularely will make sure you don´t get clogged pores and pesky breakouts.
- Dirty brushes tend to not distribute powders properly because of the yucky build up. Clean brushes give you the makeup results you expect.
- Taking care of your brushes will keep the bristles in good shape and they will last many years.
What to use?
Natural hair brushes used with powder - use a brush cleaning shampoo, a gentle soap or shampoo. Occasionally you can dip the brushes in conditioner to keep them soft.
Synthetic brushes used with creamy products as foundation and concealers - use brush cleaning shampoo. For stubborn grease, use an oil and brush clenaer to remove the oil, or dish soap.
How to clean your brushes:
1.Rinse the bristles under water. Make sure you only wet the bristles and avoid water on the handle and ferrule. focus on the actual bristles while avoiding the part of the brush where handle meets the head, as this can loosen the glue over time
2.With soap in the palm of your hand, sweep the brush across your palm. Gently massage the bristles.
3.Rinse throughly. Rinse some more.
4. Repeat steps two and three until the water runs clear from the brush,
5.Squeeze the water out, holding the brush downwards so that water doesn´t get into the ferrule. Be gentle, don´t tug too hard.
6.Shape the brush with your fingers so that the bristles form nicely.
7.Let the brush dry flat on a towel, or use a brush guard to dry it upside down. If you want to speed up the process you can let them dry on a radiator or use a blowdryer.
