The tanielle jai brushes have been curated with care and the colours that were chosen for the handle and the copper ferrule were custom designed.  Like you would look after a silk or linen shirt with care, the same applies with these brushes. Brush care is of the utmost importance to keep your brushes feeling and looking amazing.

Each brush has been painted, both the handle and copper ferrule, to create a brush that is aesthetically pleasing ensuring they look beautiful on your countertop or in your client makeovers. Majority of the brushes in the tanielle jai brush collection are natural hair which means they need to be washed and conditioned regularly. 

How you treat your hair is how you should treat your brushes... Handle with care and they will last and look beautiful for the longest time! 


Keeping your brushes in an optional condition is as easy as these five simple steps. 

Step 1: Simply wet your brush and swirl the brush into the soap until foamy.

Step 2: Gently massage into the cleansing pad.

Step 3: Rinse under warm water until bristles become clear. (Do not submerge brushes into water). 

Step 4: Gently squeeze out the excess water and lay flat to dry. 

Step 5: Place brush guard over the natural brushes to keep original shape. 

PRO TIPS : To remove stubborn stains use 'sard stain remover' followed by your 'brush soap'.

Synthetic hairs only: For glossy stubborn textures (on brushes like your defined liner, diffuse and define lip brushes) use something like your eye makeup remover or an all natural dishwashing liquid; this will help to break down any oily or stubborn formulas to clean the brush thoroughly. Follow with your 'brush soap' to cleanse and condition.  


When you don't wash your brushes, they naturally accumulate bacteria, oils and dirt from the environment around them.

A dirty brush is a prime breeding ground for nasty bacteria that can exacerbate your acne and other skin conditions. In essence, dirty brushes can cause breakouts and skin blemishes in a short period of time which can lead to infections such as a fungal infection, E. coli, or a staph infection, which can be very serious.

To protect your skin and kill any harmful bacteria that lingers in your makeup brushes, it's a good idea to wash your brushes every 5 to 7 days at minimum.

The longer you leave your brushes with makeup on them, the more risk of stains becoming permanent. Regular washing & cleasing will keep your brushes in optimal condition.

Our brushes have been made white, a great colour to keep ourselves in check, as the goal is to always keep them looking white and sparkling clean! 

PERSONAL USE: If using your brushes for personal use we suggest to wash at least once a week at minimum. Especially brushes that are used for liquid products such as foundation, concealer, cream cheek products, lips and eyeliners. As wet products and wet materials will harbour bacteria much more than powders. Brushes that are used around the eyes as well as powder brushes, at least once every two weeks, but why not clean them when you're doing your other brushes! 

CLIENT USE: Brushes should be cleaned with an alcoholic brush cleaner at minimum after each and every use before using on another client. For the best hygiene care I would suggest deep cleaning them with a brush cleanser after every use.
