Beauty fanatics have I got the makeup brushes for you! I admit, I am a bit of a makeup brush hoarder. I have more of them than I could ever need or use, but it is very important that you are either cleaning your makeup brushes regularly or replacing them.
I have tried cleaning my brushes and while it does cut down on the bacteria that gets collected and stored in them, I prefer the lazy way out, especially when great makeup brushes are so affordable, like these offered by Bella & Bear!
Clean makeup brushes are vital to healthy skin. Our makeup brushes not only pick up and collect makeup but they also pick up and store bacteria from our faces, and from the environment around them. Dust, dust mites, germs, and anything airborne. If you are like most women, you have your makeup brushes in the bathroom and we know what can happen when a toilet gets flushed! All those nasty germs floating into the air could be landing on your makeup brushes! Not to mention the dirt, and oils from our skin. Most women touch up their makeup throughout the day, not always washing off all of the makeup previously applied, nor the dirt and oils collected on their skin.
Point is, you need to clean or replace your makeup brushes regularly!
I have used many different brands of makeup brush cleaners, some work, others not so much, but at the end of the day I never get all of the makeup, dirt, oils, and germies out of my brushes. So my choices is to replace them about every six months, cleaning them once a month in the mean time.
I have tried many different brands of makeup brushes as well and my favorite has become Bella & Bear. Their makeup brushes are from a small business that has excellent customer service, frequent giveaways of their products, and are wonderful people. I like buying from good, genuine, and kind people. Plus all Bella & Bear products are vegan and cruelty free!
Aside from the absolutely gorgeous packaging, the superior customer service, and the kind hearted people behind Bella & Bear, what I love about their makeup brushes is that they are always innovating their line, changing things to meet today’s current needs, such as the Serval Eyeliner Brush!
The Serval Eyeliner Bush is for creating that perfect cat-eye look that is all the rage these days. It has an angled tip and is currently only $6.79 with free Amazon Prime shipping.

You won’t find better makeup brushes at better prices than these.
For under $25 dollars, shipping included, you can have the three most necessary makeup brushes in your collection, plus these make gorgeous gifts for the holidays with the pretty packaging. There isn’t a woman, or girl out there that I know, who wouldn’t love these as a gift, or stocking stuffer.
Tips for Clean Makeup Brushes and Better Skin:
1. Clean makeup brushes at least once a month, more often if possible with an oil free, alcohol free cleanser until all makeup is out.
2. Replace makeup brushes at the very minim once every year.
3. Use brushes only on a clean, makeup free face. When refreshing makeup, or reapplying try disposable makeup brushes, applicators, sponges, and cotton rounds.
4. Keep your makeup brushes covered, and away from the toilet. Especially when brushes are stored in the bathroom. Check out this pretty makeup brush holder, also by Bella & Bear.
5. Fast drying brushes, such as the Serval Eyeliner Brush, eyebrow combs, fine lip color brushes, and all brushes that dry quickly should be rinsed after each use.
