The other day my dermatologist was showing the latest feature of her skin analysis machine: the bacteria analyzer. There is both good and bad bacteria on everyone’s face, and she was impressed at how low my bad bacteria score was. There are a lot of ways that bacteria gets on your face: touching your face with your hands, not changing out your pillowcase enough, but a big one is dirty makeup brushes. Keeping your makeup brushes clean is a huge step towards keeping bad bacteria off your face, and keeping your skin clear. That is why we love the Lammcou Makeup Brush Cleaner.
A good set of makeup brushes can be a big investment, and many cleaning methods can be rough on the fine hairs of a brush. Lammcou understands this and has developed a system to thoroughly wash and dry your brushes using only mild soap and water.
Here’s how it works best for us:
1) Find the collar that properly fits your makeup brush and insert the end of the brush handle into the collar. Attach it to the MiraCleaner.
2) Fill the bowl halfway with soap and water.
3) Insert the brush into the soapy water and turn on the brush cleaner. Choose the level of power you want depending on how much and what kind of product are on the bristles and how delicate the brush is.
4) Keep the brush in the water for ten seconds, and then turn the brush cleaner to check if the brush is clean. If it isn’t, put it back in the water and clean for another five seconds.
5) Once the brush is clean, take it out of the water and press the power button again to dry it. My fluffy blush brush was dry in less than 15 seconds.
What I really love about how fast this device works is that I can use a brush for one product, like foundation, and then I can clean it and use the same brush for a different product, like liquid blush, in the same sitting. This makes the Lammcou Makeup Brush Cleaner an ideal device for travel and destination weddings if packing space is at a premium and you can’t bring all of your brushes.
It is also fantastic for cleaning off an eyeshadow brush if you are blending several colors together. I love using the deeper shades in any of my Urban Decay Naked Palettes, but then there is dark eyeshadow on my brush when I want to use one of the lighter highlight colors. This brush cleaner gets the dark color off fast and cleans the brush so you don’t cross contaminate between pans.
Watch how easy it is to wash and clean your brushes:
