10 Baby your brushes
Good makeup brushes should last a lifetime. If yours look destroyed, here’s how to keep your next brush in tip top shape, according to InStyle experts. First, never let your brushes sit with product on them for too long; it can permanently damage the bristles, according to makeup artist Fiona Stiles. Wash them regularly with shampoo or a mild dish detergent. To dry, lay brushes flat on a paper towel, says makeup artist Jake Bailey: “If you put them upright in a cup, water can seep into the base and rot the brush.”
