Makeup brushes, unlike mascara or foundation, don't have a specific expiration date. If they are well taken care of, they could last for years. But like all good things they will eventually come to an end. 

Below are the telltale signs that it’s time to let go of your old brushes and get brand new beauty tools. 

  1. It's shedding...a lot.

A bit of shedding is normal, but when the brush hairs start to fall out in clumps, it's time to toss it. There is a high chance that the glue holding the bristles has loosened & soon you will have no bristles left.

  1. It's not blending your makeup well.

When your brushes make your foundation, blush, and eyeshadow look patchy and uneven, it's time to replace them.

  1. It doesn't have its original shape anymore.

Makeup brushes tend to lose their shape, especially if you're heavy-handed with them, but they often go back to their original form after being washed. If your's still looks messed up or fanned out even after being cleaned, then it's time to buy a new one.

  1. It's stained with makeup.

Months and years of using your brushes with makeup will stain their bristles, but these can be easily washed off with a gentle cleanser. If they're permanently tinted, it's time to shop for a replacement because brushes with product residue may lead to breakouts.

  1. Its handle is broken.

If your brush is showing any sign of being broken throw it out as cracks and crevices store bacteria, which can spread to your hands and face. Yikes!


  1. Skin Irritation

If you're experiencing skin irritation and breakouts, old or dirty brushes could be the culprit, transferring bacteria onto your face. Remember to clean them regularly.


And while we're on the topic of brush maintenance and keeping your tools in good condition, we have to bring up regularly washing your brushes. Not only does it help keep your brushes in good condition, you'll benefit from better makeup application. ;)
