I’m a makeup artist and you’ve been storing your makeup brushes all wrong – it’s the gross reason you keep getting acne | The Sun

MOST OF US keep our makeup brushes out on our vanity table so they are in easy reach for doing our makeup.

But one makeup artist has revealed that it could be causing you to get acne.

Rifah, who is also a cosmetic chemist explained on TikTok that keeping your makeup brushes in a pot could cause you more skin issues.

She said: "You know your desk? How often do you clean it because it's full of dust?

One wrote: "Put a pot upside down on top of the other pot."
