We all use makeup brushes every day, sometimes multiple times a day. We contour, we highlight, we cover our faces with makeup every day using brushes, but how often do we clean them? Turns out, not enough.

It’s a dirty little secret that many of us aren’t washing our makeup brushes as often as we should, if ever. Kind of gross if you think about it.

And if you already are getting in the habit of keeping them clean, how do you know you’re doing it the right way? Take the quiz and find out if you’ve mastered the art of having clean makeup brushes or not.

What Happens When you Don’t Clean Your Makeup Brushes

By now, most people know the importance of cleaning makeup brushes. At least we hope. If you still need a wake-up call to remind yourself you should be cleaning your makeup brushes, consider what happens when you don’t.

  • Your pores can get clogged.
  • You’re at a higher risk of catching an infection.
  • Your makeup will not look flawless.
  • You could get a pink eye.
  • Your skin can get irritated.

None of those are risks worth taking in our opinion. Not to mention, there will be bacteria growing inside your makeup brushes and sponges. Gross. Let these be alarming reasons to clean your makeup brushes more often.
