After a few weeks of using your makeup brushes, your face's natural oils, makeup, and bacteria will start to build up. Cleaning your makeup brushes regularly will not only get rid of the bacteria, but it will also prevent your makeup colors from getting mixed.

Keep your makeup brushes in tip-top shape and ensure the bristles stay soft and bacteria-free longer. Try washing brushes at least once a week. Okay every two weeks.
