TAKING CARE OF MAKEUP BRUSHES
We, at Nastelle, believe that a quality makeup brush is one of the critical elements, together with knowledge and creativity, in achieving a professional, complex and flawless makeup.
Only a proper brush care can ensure that these tools will perform at their best.
There are two daily process in the brush cleaning and care:
A. cleaning and disinfection during the day;
B. "end of the day" cleaning and washing.
After each use of the brush, you should tap off any excess of the powder from the bristles, or gently sweep off the bristles on a soft tissue to wipe off any excess product in the case of lips products or eyeshadows.
Make sure that all the product has been removed from the bristles to avoid mixing it with a new shade at the next use.
For heavy pigmented brushes, you can pour liquid brush cleanser into a little bowl, glass or paper cup (not plastic, because the product will melt it and it will cover the bristles) and then dip in one brush at a time, swirling the brush around in the bowl. Then use a tissue to soak up the liquid on the brushes (squeeze thoroughly, do not rub, as it’s more gentle for the bristles), then lay them on a paper towel to dry. Due to the fact that the cleanser contains alcoholic solvents, it makes the brush to dry fast and be ready for the next use.
Cleaning the brushes with a brush soap attenuates the damage on the hair caused by alcoholic solvents from brush cleanser used during the day, keeps the hair hydrated, soft and maintains the capacity of holding powder.
