Cleaning your Kabuki Brush is easy and today I will be explaining how to do this in 3 easy steps!

Step 1- Before you start applying your choice or brush cleanser, you need to wet your kabuki brush. Head for your sink and start to run the hot tap, however I would advise you to use warm water as this is better for the bristles and stops you from burning your hand! Place the Kabuki Brush under running water until all the bristles are wet through.

Step 2- Now you need to take your brush cleanser I recommend using an oil based cleanser, great for breaking down makeup. However you can use what you want other people use soap and shampoo! Apply your cleanser to the brush and very gently massage the cleanser into the bristles and clean thoroughly. Remember to use soft hand motions as you don't want to damage your brush.

Step 3- Rinse your Kabuki brush washing out all of the soap and old product. You will know your brush is clean once the water starts to run clear!
