    Ok,
    I'm going to admit first that I rarely clean my brushes.
    However, I had some time on my hands and thought 'eh, why not!'.
    I learnt quickly how disgusting they had been and the many advantages to cleaning.

    If you have been getting spots from wearing make-up it may not be your foundation but in actual fact your brushes.
    When clean, the foundation, blush etc goes on sooooo much better.

    I heard that you should clean them every time you use them. Surely thats a little too much?

    I can barely find the time in a week!

    I clean mine when they are all dirty, but I have at least 3 of each brush I own so it takes a while. I would guess once a month

    I try to make time for cleaning my brushes once a week and give them a spritz and wipe when I have time after using them. You shouldn't need to give them such a thorough clean if you do them once a week. I know it's annoying but better than getting spots! I use an anti-bacterial wash on mine to get rid of anything gross 😄

    I would do it once a week, make sure you get an anti-bac brush cleaner.

    I clean mine properly with a solution every month.However I use a quick clean method by dabbing my brush on a piece of cellotape to get the product off, especially if I need to change eyeshadow colours.

    I aim for once a week, more like once every three months.

    Dont buy the special brush cleaners, they're overpriced and are harder to use. Baby shampoo or a cheap block of soap works fine.

    You can get "brush cleansers" that cleans the brushes which is what I use everytime I do my makeup.
    I deep clean them every week.
