If you’re a makeup junkie like me, you probably have dozens of makeup brushes to take care of. I completely understand that cleaning them is time consuming and a chore, but having clean brushes is important, especially if you want to avoid breakouts or spreading germs.
Sigma’s brush cleaning mat and glove have been around for a few years now, but it was only recently that I discovered it. Prices range from $32 to $39. For such a steep price for a silicone glove or sink mat with ridges, I can understand why normal makeup users are skeptical to purchase it. However, don’t be fooled by its simple looks; the brush cleaning mat and glove significantly cut your cleaning time and will give your brushes the deep cleaning it needs to get dirt, oil and old makeup out.
There are two sides on each glove. One side has larger ridges for face brushes and the other contains smaller ridges for cleaning small eye brushes. The same concept is applied to the mat. Pretty self explanatory, right? Well, there’s a bit more to it than that. Each set of ridges perform different tasks. Below, Bun Bun Makeup Tips gives a step-by-step pictorial on how to utilize the glove:
1. Load up your brush with your favorite cleanser.
2. Wash away the yucky old makeup.
3. Rinse until water runs clear.
5. Re-shape your brushes to its original form.
The result? A squeaky clean and pampered brush set that’s ready to go for a client or another month’s round of makeup shenanigans.
