charset=windows-1252 Hello hello! Today I am going to be talking
about something that I think=is really important, especially in the makeup
industry. And that is=cleaning your makeup brushes. I can think
of a lot of reasons why you=should be cleaning your makeup brushes regularly,
but I am going to give=you three reasons why you really, really need
to be doing this. The=first is because it will prolong the life
of your brushes. If you are=buying nice brushes and spending a lot of
money on them, you don=92t=want to have to replace them once a year because
you=92re not taking=care of them. Cleaning your brushes regularly
will really help them last=a long time. The second is, if you have a
dirty makeup brush, like this=is a good example of a makeup brush that needs
some attention, as you=can see the bristles are all clumping together
and they are pretty stiff=because it is just so full of product. When
your brushes are like this,=your makeup is not going to go on smoothly
or evenly, it=92s just the=brushes cant work correctly. Let me just give
you a demonstration of=what I mean. Your brushes shouldn=92t just
be able to bend and stay like=that, they should just bounce back into place,
so this brush is just way=too full of product and isn=92t going to give
me an even application.=And then the third and probably the most important
reason that you will=care about is, using dirty brushes is going
to cause a lot of acne and=unwanted blemishes. What happens is that bacteria
loves to dwell in damp=warm places and nothing looks more cozy to
bacteria than this brush that=has gooey product in it and it can just go
live and multiply in your=brushes, and then you spread that all over
your face and that just=creates a hot mess. So by cleaning your brushes
regularly, it is really=going to help prevent future breakouts. I
know a lot of people have=different routines for cleaning your brushes,
but I am going to share=what I do. I only use three things when I=92m
cleaning my brushes. The=first is an anti-bacterial soap. And I=92m
actually just using one of=Bath and Body Works anti-bacterial gentle
foaming hand soap. The most=important quality of this hand soap is that
it is anti-bacterial, and=then I like how it=92s foaming because I really
feel like it gets in=there and cleans really well and it=92s light
so it doesn=92t coat the=brushes or anything like that. The second
product I use is this Johnson=and Johnson=92s baby shampoo. And this blue
one happens to be my=favorite because the smell is amazing and
it makes my brushes smell so=fresh and so clean. This shampoo is so great
because it gives the=brushes a thorough wash so you know that you
cleaned them thoroughly.=And it is really hydrating, so for those of
you who use really=hairbrushes, you=92ll love using something
like this because it will=really bring the life back into your brushes.
And you will notice a=difference on your skin by how soft they feel
on your skin, and if you=have sensitive skin like me you will want
your brushes to be nice and=soft so they aren=92t irritating and causing
redness when you=92re using=them. The third thing is just a clean towel.
And I use this when I am=cleaning out the brushes and removing any
excess product, and then I=also lay it out flat when I am drying my brushes.
Starting with the=anti-bacterial soap, I use this mainly on
brushes that I use a cream or=liquid product. So that=92s anything from
your eyebrow brushes, to your=concealer brushes, to your foundation brushes.
Anything where, like I=said, you use a cream or a liquid product
here it really gets in there=and you can feel that it is oily and dense.
These types of brushes=really need that second cleaning and they
really need that=anti-bacterial action. What I will do is pump
some of the anti-bacterial=soap in my hand, and I will twirl the brush
inside the soap and just=kind of whirl it around without applying too
much pressure, and then=once I notice that it starts foaming and you
can see all that color=bubbling up, I will rinse it. And usually
my foundation brushes I will=do once or twice because they really absorb
quite a bit of product. So I=will rinse it out in between washes in lukewarm
water, you don=92t want=it too hot because it will loosen up the glue
that is holding the=bristles to the brush. So just lukewarm, and
try not to get the handle=of the brush wet if you can avoid it, and
then just rinse it really good=until you start to notice the water is starting
to run clear. And then=you can decide if you think it needs to be
washed one more time or if=you can move on to the shampoo process. To
get all of that product out=they usually need to be washed once or twice.
With brushes that I am=using powder products on, like these contouring
brushes, or like an eye=shadow brush where I am just using a loose
powder, I don=92t use the=anti-bacterial soap because I don=92t feel
like it needs that extra=cleansing. So I will just apply the same process,
I will rinse them=under water to get just that initial product
out. And then what I will=do is take a nickel size of shampoo in my
hand, and then I will just=whirl the brush around in the soap until I
notice that is starts=foaming, and then I just rinse once or twice
and repeat that until I=can visually see that the brush is clean and
that the water is running=completely clean as well. And I just repeat
that through all of my=brushes. Once I use the anti-bacterial soap
on all the brushes and rinse=them and then use the shampoo on all the brushes
and rinse them, I will=usually ring out my brushes really gently,
like this, by holding it=down, and then I just squeeze all of that
moisture out without pulling=the hairs of the brushes. And you can kind
of use your fingers to pinch=that moisture out like that. One thing I recommend
doing, is while your=brushes are wet; make sure you kind of form
them with your fingers to=their original shape so that they dry in a
nice form and symmetrical=shape. So that the next time you go to use
them they still have their=original formation and you can get that precision
that you need with=those brushes. And then what you are going
to want to do is get that=towel flat and you can roll one side of it
so it has a little bit of an=angle to it. Then just lay out all of your
brushes nice and flat. I=typically like to wash my brushes in the evening,
that way they can dry=overnight and then they=92re ready to use
the next day. What I will say=is that anything you are using liquids on,
especially your foundation=brushes, you do kind of need to be washing
them rather frequently, if=you can, every 2-3 uses, so that you are not
causing breakouts and so=that your brushes are applying easily and
smoothly. If you are really=vigilant and really want to take care of your
brushes, I recommend=cleaning them at least once a week. A lot
of make up professionals will=recommend doing it after each use. If you
want something to kind of=cheat and get you in between washes, they
do have these professional=brush cleaners that you can get that come
in a spray bottle. And they=are almost always anti-bacterial, which will
help prevent those=breakouts, and they are really nice. All you
do is take your brush and=spritz it on the tip a few times until it
is nice and saturated. And=then you take your towel and just whirl it
around until you see all of=that product coming out. Once you see that
you have eliminated all of=the product in your brush, you can once again
kind of form it so that it=is nice and symmetrical again, and then lay
it flat to dry overnight. I=find that I don=92t like using a spray cleaner
regularly because it=doesn=92t get it as clean as using the anti-bacterial
soap and the=shampoo. But it is kind of nice to have, and
you can typically pick=these up for under ten dollars. Sephora actually
has a really good one=but it is around 15-20 dollars. So lets recap,
one, cleaning your=brushes is going to make them last a lot longer,
saving you lots of=money and hassle of buying and replacing your
brushes. Two, cleaning=your brushes is going to help your makeup
go on nice and smooth, perfect=and flawless, without having all of that excess
product in them. And=three, cleaning your brushes are going to
help keep them from spreading=bacteria and causing unwanted nasty looking
acne or blemishes. Those are=three good reasons right there why you should
be taking care of your=brushes and cleaning them regularly. And just
in case some of you are=going to ask, if you are wondering about my
fabulous backdrop here, this=is one of the backdrops I designed for Pepperlu.
If you go to=pepperlu.com you can see that I made a whole
fun collection that you can=use for photography, or even for videos if
you have your own YouTube=channel. And if you use the promo code whippy30,
you can get 30 percent=off your backdrop order. So yeah there is
a whole bunch of different=backdrops that I made, and then they have
even more to choose from it=92s=insane, they are really fun and a great way
to make your videos a little=more customizable to you and your style. So

  1. Would u do a tutorial on ur make up look? I love how u do your eyes. Also maybe a hair tutorial on how u did ur hair? Love all ur videos!

  2. Do you feel that laying the brushes flat to dry  works out well?  I see the hanging method
    that some people use I think called Benjabelle brush tree to dry their brushes . I have no problem buying what I need , however if your way works well no need to waste money. 

  3. Love your videos. But antibacterial soap is actually very bad for you and causes more bacteria to to grow that's more harmful. Just something to think about. 🙂

  4. I adore your videos! I hope you keep doing them. Also…love, love, love your bracelets! I would love for you to do some videos on styling, accessorizing since you do it so we'll. Thanks again for the fun videos!

  5. Hey Beckie! I'm thinking about cutting my hair short (like your faux hawk style) but I'm scared it won't look good for my wedding day next year… Would you do a tutorial on different ways to wear short hair for a wedding? Thanks a million!
    You and your family are all beautiful!

  6. I was amazed at how you wash your brushes!!! I've been using bath and body works but thought I was doing wrong for many years. I ❤️❤️❤️Your hair in this video. Is it your usual curling technique? Love that you are posting more frequent videos especially with all that kiddo cuteness going on. You inspire me to take care of me while being a mom! Happy belated Mother's Day!!

  7. This video reminded me how badly I need to clean my makeup brushes! And it's funny you mentioned the background at the end because the whole time I was wondering how you had such a neat background! I'll have to check out pepperlu! 

  8. Thank you Whippy! I bought an IT crease brush yesterday and a few brushes from the Japonesque line at Ulta. Used them this morning and they work great!
