Beautyblenders are a handy tool to apply your makeup. The one issue with them is that they easily fill up with makeup product after multiple uses.

It is necessary to clean your Beautyblenders to remove the product build up.

This build up of product can grow bacteria which can make your face break out if it is applied onto your face.

If you're not cleaning it regularly, you are making a common beauty blender mistake.

For those with more acne prone skin, it may be a good idea to lightly clean off your Beautyblender after every use.


All you need to quickly clean up your Beautyblender after you apply your face makeup is a clean spray bottle, some liquid dish soap or natural baby shampoo, and some clean water.


Put some liquid soap or natural baby wash into your empty spray bottle. Pour some clean water into this bottle. Shake up the mixture of water and soap.


Once it is shaken up, you can spray your Beautyblender with the soap and water spray. Spray thoroughly and then you rinse off your reusable makeup sponge in the sink.


Set it on a clean washcloth on your vanity, dresser, or bathroom counter to dry.


This is not the only way to clean your Beautyblender. You will have to do more vigorous regular weekly cleaning of your applicator even if you do quick wash ups everyday.

How to Quickly Clean Off A Beautyblender After Daily Use

One way to keep your makeup sponges cleaner for longer is to properly store them.


Place your Beautyblender in a mesh bag by itself, a well ventilated place, or a clean dry washcloth.


Beautyblenders do not belong in a makeup bag as they can become filled with bacteria if they are surrounded by makeup products in a cramped cosmetics bag.


Never forget that it's just best to store your applicator separately from your other makeup products and tools.
