Washing Your Makeup Brushes

Washing your makeup brushes is very important. Having all the build up of makeup is kinda gross and can lead to acne because of the bacteria. Having clean brushes can also lead to a better application of makeup. Listed below are two methods to clean your dirty makeup brushes.
