How to dry Kabuki brushes

After cleaning your makeup brushes it's important to allow them to dry thoroughly so you don't encourage mold and bacteria growth. To dry my makeup brushes, I set them on a flat surface (usually on top of my study table) and allow the bristles to hang over the edge to dry. Because of the thicker bristles, Kabuki brushes should be hanged upside down. To do this I put some Blu-Tack on the end of the brush handle and I hang it upside down (on a shelf) in my bookshelf. After a day the brush is properly dried and ready to use again. 

I hope this helps. If you have other ways of drying your makeup brushes please share them in the comments section below.


  1. OOO wait: this is uber smart! I dry most of my brushes the way you do, but I can indeed do this with my kabuki brush. Thanks for the tip!
