Cleaning your brushes and products regularly is very important due to bacteria or infections being spread from clients to other clients. It is important to be hygienic and keep your brushes and products clean at all times.
My Routine to cleaning brushes:
If I have multiple clients in one day I always tend to have 1 extra brush of each in my kit just in case.
If I haven’t got much time I clean the brushes before I see another client using the MAC cleaner, every 2 days I wash them with shampoo and conditioner like how you do with normal hair.
Cleaning with the MAC brush cleaner is simple all you need to do is apply a small amount on a tissue and dab the brush until all access has been removed, by looking at the brush colour once its all removed you leave it at the end of a table making sure the brush is hanging down for it to dry easier. if you put the brushes on a stand all the water goes inside the brush which then damages the glue inside and the brush will fall apart. *DO NOT LEAVE THE BRUSH ON A STAND* leave it flat at the end of a table.
I wash my brushes with shampoo and condition every 2 days and making sure all dirt has been removed and same applies when washing brushes to leave them flat at edge of the table to help them dry and avoid the water damaging the glue. It will run your brushes which is not good.
Cleaning makeup products.
Every 3-4 days I clean my lipsticks/eye shadows with 90% bacterial liquid which you can get from any store. I spray this on the product and remove any access dirt or dust.
I managed to purchase a big bottle from Salon Services and put in a small spray bottle to I can carry with my kit it comes in handy.
Make sure when you use lip pencils and eye liner pencils to sharpen them regularly used items do not look appealing to some clients so I like to keep them looking fresh.
