    Asked by: LaVerne
    Hello LaVerne, With our Well-Cared For Makeup Brush Cleaner, you can keep your brushes in great shape. This rich, foaming makeup brush cleaner washes away all traces of dirt, makeup, oil, and debris. Wet the bristles with lukewarm water. Then place a drop of Well-Cared For into the palm of your clean hand. Gently massage the tips of the bristles in your palm. Rinse the bristles thoroughly. Squeeze out the excess moisture with a clean towel. We recommend cleaning your brushes once a week. -Brittny, Clean Beauty Artist
