When I first started using make up brushes, I was told I needed to wash them regularly to rid of “bacteria”. I ignored the advice in college cuz I kept thinking, it’s my germs and I’m not sharing the brushes with anyone so why should I worry. Well, a forehead full of tiny bumps is why I should have worried. If you do not clean your brushes reguarly, bacteria will collect and will clog your pores or worse, make you break out! If you’re busy (or lazy like me) — you might want to try disposable brushes from Klix. The brushes are made of synthetic fiber but still utterly soft. The best part about it is when the brush is dirty, just click and toss and put new ones on! Klix Brushes here.
