|My Brushes BEFORE|
The reason i'm a great advocate of brush cleaning is that :
1). Your Product shelf-life lasts a little while longer than you are used to seeing
2). You reduce health risks as a result of bacteria on your products.
3). Your clients will be grateful you did.
4). Makeup application looks a lot better & flawless.

I forgot to add that i sometimes add some Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) when washing brushes that i use for WET products, e.g Foundation brushes, Eyeliner brushes, Lip Brushes et al. But please Note : Oil is better used on Synthetic Haired brushes than Animal Hairs, which is what Foundation, Eyeliner & Lip brushes are mostly made of.

After rinsing, you always want to either lay ur brushes flat to dry OR at an angle with the Brush Hairs & ferrule(Metal part) of the brush Facing downwards. Doing this prevents the Glue holding your brush hairs & brush handle together from loosing grip.
Place your brushes in an airy place to dry (NOT IN DIRECT SUN) & give it about 8hrs to dry. If you are spoilt for time, your MAC Brush Cleaner comes into play. I'll show you how in another Post.
