How to dry makeup brushes the right way

Step 1: Once you have properly cleaned your brushes, it's now time to dry them. Look for a flat surface with an edge, such as a dressing table or a kitchen counter and lay a clean towel on it. Now, place a clean towel on it and fold the towel over so it surrounds the brush. Gently squeeze the brushes to get rid of the excess water to ensure that they are not extremely wet.

Step 2: Next, place the brushes flat on a paper towel in such a way that the bristles are laying over the edge. What this will do is, it will allow air to pass through the bristles to help them dry more evenly. Leave the brushes like this overnight, before you plan on using them again.

GirlStyle Tip:  Putting your brushes to dry vertically in a cup is big no, even you think that it is more convenient. The water could drip down the stick and weaken the glue, reducing the life span of the brushes.
