How to Look After Your Brushes

Powder Brush
Foundation brush (for powder)/face brush/cheek brush/eye shadow brush.
Please remove any remaining powder from the brush after use with a tissue.

Liquid Brush
Foundation brush (for liquid foundation)
We recommend you wash your brush in water once every week because the brush hairs will mesh together and hinder smooth application.

Moisten your brush with water and wash it in facial soap, pushing down gently on the base of the hairs. After rinsing the brush in tepid water, squeeze out any remaining moisture and leave it to dry in the shade. Please do not expose it to direct light or to a hair dryer. Also, please be aware that if you do not remove all the moisture, the brush will molt and there is risk of mold growing.

Lip Brush
After use, remove any remaining lipstick with a tissue. Please make sure the brush is always kept clean. If you place it in a case, make sure that you keep the brush straight.

Warning: If you have delicate skin, you may experience trouble. Should you sense any discomfort, please refrain from use immediately.
