Well??…. I could probably wash mine more often… wait… I could probably wash them A LOT more often!
I found this online:
How often do I need to wash my makeup brushes?
Many experts agree that once a month is fine. “Dip the brush in warm, soapy water—use shampoo or a mild bar soap. Rinse it, blot the brush with a clean towel, then use a blow-dryer to dry the bristles gently,” suggests Ellen Marmur, a dermatologist in New York City.
Oooops! For me it’s more like every 6 months!!!

I’m disgusting obviously…lol.
I used to wear tons of makeup every day so brushes were cleaned more often. Now I’m down to a 5 step routine which takes all of like 4 minutes and is only M – F. Weekends are no makeup days (unless I have plans to go out at night or meet up with friends.) I only use an eyeshadow brush and a powder brush on a regular basis and tap all the powder out I can see after I use them and wash them with shampoo and water like every 5 or 6 months probably. My eyelash curler on the other hand? It gets cleaned every other day basically.

@Artificial-Sweetener: You’re supposed to wash makeup brushes?!?!?!
While I don’t wash my brushes…I usually get the Estee Lauder xmas blockbuster and you get new brushes in the makeup collection. So, I usually replace them once a year.

Every six months probably, which isnt great considering I have the cleanser…I just dont like the feeling the brushes get when ive cleaned them

Ummmmmm. For my day to day makeup I just use drugstore eyeshadow kits with those little sponge brushes, and my fingers. I have honestly never washed one of those sponges. I guess that’s gross…
For my more elaborate/fancy makeup, I rarely use those so I wash them out after each use since it’ll be a while before I use it again, and I’d rather not have makeup sitting on it for that long.

I wash mine every week, but just because I love how they feel after I do!

I’m all over the place. I’m good about replacing sponges, I buy super cheap ones. Powder and blush brushes sometimes I get in the habit of washing them often, and I’ve probably been guilty of waiting 6 months too.

Every month or so. But mostly, the only “brush” i actually use is my mosturizer and foundation brushes.

Maybe 2-3 times a year? It doesn’t really bother me, I also have some really old makeup which is probably super unhegienic but no problems so far!

I wash mine once a week, when I’m lazy, I wash them every other week!

I use tinted moisturizer, so I don’t use brushes for foundation. I don’t wash my brushes that I use eye shadow or blush on – I just don’t think that for powder makeup it really matters.

Everytime I look at my brushes, I feel bad. I should wash them more often but according to the dermatologist I’m good!!!!

@Artificial-Sweetener: The ones that I use fairly regularly once a month. I also spray them with that make up cleaning spray every couple of days – I just do that quickly after I’ve used them.
My main foundation brush I wash almost every day because my foundation seems to really stick to it and clog it up… I actually can’t seem to get it all off no matter how many times I’ve cleaned the thing 🙁 I think it’s the foundation I’m using, Revlon Colorstay.
