How-to: Care for & Clean Your Kabuki Brush
The Kabuki Brush is a great way to apply your Sunless Tan HDPV Anti-shine Powder. However, regular use of your brush can trap bits of makeup, oil, dirt, and even bacteria in the bristles. Due to this, we recommend cleaning your brush often so your skin stays healthy. Don’t worry, it’s simple…….
The pros often spritz their brush with anti-bacterial brush cleaner and wipe them on a clean towel after each use. However, with time, additional makeup builds up in the brush and the spray just doesn’t cut it. Here’s how to deep clean your makeup brush after prolonged use.
- Dampen a section of a paper towel with Fast Drying Brush Cleaner and wipe brush from side to side. (You can also use Rubbing Alcohol but this may be drying and harsh on the brush over time).
- As the towel gets dirty, dampen another section and repeat. Not only will this clean the brush, but the Brush Cleaner / Alcohol evaporates quickly for a clean brush that’s ready to go.
- Rinse brush head gently under lukewarm water, with the brush at a 45 degree angle pointing down, using fingers to massage Shampoo/Soap to hair. Apply in the direction of the hair from ferrule towards top. (Ferrule: The metal part of the brush between the hair and handle). Rinse gently under running water, thoroughly.
If possible, follow above with conditioner. Gently reshape the head of the brush and lay flat over the edge of a table or counter so that the bristles are open to the air on all sides. Allow to completely dry (approximately 5 – 6 hours)
Be careful not to let any cleaner or water run inside the ferrule (the metal part of the brush between the hair and handle). This can weaken the glue used to hold the hair and cause shedding problems or even loosen handles. Always lay brushes flat to dry. Do not blow dry – this will cause the hair to frizz!
It’s simple to keep your brush clean and ensure you have great looking skin!
