I never knew how important it was to clean makeup brushes. Our makeup brushes are very good quality and once I joined Younique and started using the brushes, I knew I had to start keeping them clean so they would last.
Makeup brushes can carry bacteria if you do not keep them clean, and that kinda grossed me out. Also, you will see a big difference in applying your makeup once they are clean, especially the eyeshadow brushes.
How To Clean Makeup Brushes
When I first started cleaning my makeup brushes, I used Dawn soap. Dawn works very well but I heard from some of the other ladies on the team that the Gender Bender bath soap from Perfectly Post was very good when cleaning your brushes. I met up with a lady who sells them (I do not sell Perfectly Post) and purchased one from her.
This soap smells so good and I love the way it cleans my makeup brushes.

Below is some information about the Gender Bender soap, if you are interested in buying some and trying it out, here is the link to the lady I purchased mine from, her name is Norma. Please let her know that I sent you 🙂
I did a Facebook Live video demonstrating how I clean my brushes. I also made a diy makeup cleaning board which works great and really helps get them clean.

I do apologize for the video below for being so long, I could not figure out how to trim it. I hope you find some value from it, if you do, I would appreciate it if you would share it with your friends!
