NOTE: You can use the same alcohol in the jar you've poured but at the same time - but realistic - its is 90 days old! If so, change it. I change mine all day long - but i'm using lots of makeup and brushes etc...

There are two things I spend real money on. A good foundation and brushes. You can do more with bad makeup and good brushes than good makeup and bad brushes.

Brushes are the one area I spend money. It's a worth while investment.

There are a few ways to clean your brushes and soap and water is just fine if that's your preference.

Most makeup companies sell brush cleaners - and some contain a small amount of alcohol. These are fine too.

BUT for me I want to know my brushes are clean. Hospital grade clean. If someone I'm working on has an eye infection (that I can't see or they aren't aware of), cold sore, acne etc... I want to know that the cleaning solution I use will kill all bacteria - 100% to hospital grade.

I use 99% alcohol and it cleans the brush in seconds and depending on the size they're dry within 60 seconds to 5 minutes.

I clean my brushes everyday. Sometimes 3x a day. My brushes haven't dried out or turned corse. Some of my brushes are years old and they're still great - even with this frequent cleaning.

Never take a chance with cleaning your brushes especially if you're using them on other people.

5 litres of brush cleaning fluid will cost you about £30 and will last you 5 years.

All my makeup (eyeshadows, foundation, powders etc...) is cleaned and disinfected with beauty so clean spray. I cannot tell you how many makeup artists I've worked with who's kit was filthy. It's not pretty and I wouldn't want someone working on me with dirty makeup.

I once had a contract with a very large TV company. I was appalled at some of the other makeup artists kits. Granted they cleaned there brushes but not as frequently as they should and the makeup was filthy to look at. Would you want someone to do your face with that?

Makeup is expensive so treat it well. Clean your palettes. Knock off and clean excess fall out from your palettes. Even though the product is used it should still look clean - spotless.

If you're only doing your makeup then your cleaning frequency is entirely up to you. But if you ask me - clean your makeup.

Look after your face and look after your clients face.

Most good makeup suppliers sell or can order makeup brush cleaner.
