MAKEUP BRUSH GUIDE

Beauty is a journey, and choosing the perfect makeup brush can be just as important as the products you use. In this post we'll show you how to get the most out of your makeup brushes.

Not sure where to start when buying makeup brushes? UD Pro Brushes have been created to help you achieve amazing results. These brushes are what you need in your makeup bag. Our makeup brushes are made from high quality materials that respect nature.

Whether you’re a makeup artist or looking for everyday brushes for your makeup bag, the right brushes can transform your makeup routine. Our vegan and cruelty-free brushes are crafted with super-soft synthetic bristles, designed for professional and precise application. Our brushes feature recycled, brushed-aluminium handles and are easy to clean and store, making them the perfect addition to your makeup collection.

High quality brushes are so important. They will help you apply your foundation, powder to your skin, blush, eyeliner, lip gloss…just about anything you do with your face.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES

  • Washing your brushes is super important to keep the bristles in perfect condition and to remove any bacteria.
  • How often you should wash your brushes depends on how often you use them, we recommend washing personal brushes every week, or if you are an MUA after every client.
  • Wash the brushes bristles using warm water and a gentle shampoo, avoid soaking the brush for too long or getting the brush handle wet as this will damage your brushes.
  • Leave your brushes to dry by laying them flat on a towel.
