Hi, my name is Beth Ann Warren. I'm a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist in Los Angeles, California. Today I'm going to teach you how to clean your makeup brushes with alcohol. The materials that you'll be using during this would be your soiled makeup brushes, a spray bottle full of 99 percent alcohol and a box of Kleenex. It's really important to use 99 percent alcohol versus 70 percent alcohol. 99 percent alcohol will actually kill the bacteria that's living on your brushes. Believe it or not, whether you're sharing brushes with somebody else or applying makeup on various people or even just using the same brushes on yourself, a lot of bacteria can build up on those bristles, so it's really important to kill the bacteria that's living on them. So, the first thing you're going to do is take your soiled brush, going to take a tissue, you're going to lay the tissue down. You're going to hold the brush over the tissue. You're going to take your 99 percent alcohol and spray the edges of the brush and dust it over the tissue so that all the makeup residue comes off on the tissue. Now, you're going to take your clean brush and you're going to stand it upright so that the alcohol can just naturally air dry. Just remember it's a really good tip to make sure that you spray your brushes with alcohol before and after, every time you use them. So, make sure to spray them after your done using them and make sure to spray them again just a few minutes before you're going to apply your makeup the next time. It just helps to prevent the spread and growth of bacteria. Again, my name is Beth Ann Warren. I'm a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist in Los Angeles, California, and I really appreciate you listening to my video today on how to clean your makeup brushes with alcohol.
