Follow these tips to make your makeup brushes last longer.  Makeup brushes are a very important tool. They can be somewhat expensive, though.

How to Save Money on Makeup Brushes

Choose quality.
There are two ways you can go when it comes to buying makeup brushes. Your first impulse might be to select the ones that are the least expensive. Doing so might help fit them into your budget this week.

Over time, though, you will end up saving money if you buy makeup brushes that are high quality. They last longer than the cheap ones. You can extend their life if you keep them clean. One slightly more expensive purchase can end up costing less than three or four (or more) “cheap” buys.

What to look for.
Choose brushes made from polyester or nylon fibers. They are sturdy and can withstand being tossed into a purse of makeup bag and carried around. They also might cost a bit less than the natural fiber brushes. Synthetic brushes are easier to keep clean than are brushes made from natural fibers.

People who have allergies to animals should avoid the brushes that have natural fibers (because those are made from animal hair). Use the polyester or nylon bushes instead, and save money on allergy medication and/or a visit to a doctor.

You may want to avoid buying a package that has a bunch of different makeup brushes in it. How many of those are you really going to use? If you don’t know what some of those brushes are for, don’t buy the package. Instead, go “a la carte” and buy a couple of brushes that you know you will make use of.

How to keep your brushes clean.
It is recommended that you get into the routine of cleaning your makeup brushes once a week. This helps prevent the buildup of bacteria on the brushes. You don’t want that on your face! Cleaning your brushes can also help extend their life.

* Bring all your makeup brushes to the sink.
* Put some baby shampoo into the palm of your hand.
* Wash one brush at a time.
* Gently rub the baby shampoo into the brush.
* Rinse it out under warm water. Make sure you rinse out all of the shampoo.
* Squeeze the water out of the brush.
* Place the brush on a towel and gently wipe it to get more water out.
* Let them dry before you use them.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
