Cleaning your brushes - Why's it important?

Cleaning your make-up brushes is honestly one of the most boring and laborious tasks that you have to do, but it is definitely worth the time it takes. Lots of people (including me) put it off, as you can often just forget about it. However, it is very important!

Think about it - if you don't clean your brushes, effectively  every time you use that brush you are not only brushing on old make-up, but you are brushing germs back onto your face, causing spots and blackheads, because you are clogging up your pores.

Also, If you use the brush for a dark coloured eye shadow, or for blush and then use it for a light colour of eyeshadow or powder, the previous colour will still be on the brush, and it will ruin your make-up. This is especially annoying when using a black brush as you sometimes can't tell if it's clean or not.
