BP Beauty Pro make-up brushes

Designed to beautify, make your work easier and above all – to last for years. Tested on hundreds of different clients’ faces, regularly washed and disinfected… We know that our brushes are a reliable product, and a must have for almost every woman. However, in order to enjoy them for a long time, they require proper handling. Fortunately, it is not that difficult!

Proper storage

If, like most women, you store your brushes uncovered, in the bathroom, you need to know that this is a mistake. The bathroom is a place where there is usually a lot of humidity and temperature fluctuations. Such conditions, unfortunately, are not good for your brushes and can result in a shorter lifespan. Unless… you store your brushes in a specially designed brush case. It also has another important advantage: it is easy to transport your brushes when you are traveling, for example.

Wherever you store your brushes, make sure they are in a closed container/packaging so that they are protected from moisture, dust and any contaminants.

Washing, disinfecting and drying 

Dirty make-up brushes can become a breeding ground for bacteria, dead skin and dust. Only proper washing and disinfecting of brushes will ensure protection against skin problems such as irritation, allergies or acne.  

Regularity is the basis here. Use a special brush cleaner or antibacterial gel for cleaning. It’s also worth getting a special silicone glove with bristles to make cleaning easier and more thorough.

How to wash brushes?
Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Wet the dirty brush (bristles down) under lukewarm running water. Remember not to bend or squeeze the bristles. Also be careful not to let the water get into the cap. 
  2. Pour a small amount of your chosen brush cleanser into the hollow of your hand or onto a silicone glove and clean your brush in a circular motion until it is clean. 
  3. Rinse the brush under lukewarm running water – with the bristles down, of course.
  4. Get rid of excess water by gently pressing the bristles into a paper towel.
  5. For all large brushes made of goat hair, apply the mesh that came with them. The mesh was created just for drying the brushes, preventing the bristles from deforming.
  6. Lay the brushes flat (or bristles down) in an airy place. This is best done, for example, on the edge of a table, so that the bristles extend beyond the edge of the tabletop.

Remember never to dry your brushes by placing them vertically – bristles upwards. This can cause water to run down into the cap, leading to the cap becoming dislodged and the whole brush deteriorating quickly.

How often do you wash your brushes? 

Those designed for applying liquid products such as foundations, BB creams and more, wash after each use. Brushes designed for loose products, wash at least every 2-3 days. 

If your brushes have been in use for a long time and the bristles no longer feel as nice to the touch as they did at the beginning, you can use… a hair conditioner! After washing your brushes, apply the product to them and wait a few minutes, then rinse. Done!
