Our Favorite Cleansers for Your Makeup Brushes

When was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes?

If the answer is you don't know, then we definitely have a problem.

Remember that your makeup brushes hold onto old makeup, bacteria, and dust that collects between washes.

So those breakouts that you're suddenly getting when you wear makeup isn't because your skin has developed a reaction to your makeup. Chances are, those breakouts sprouted on your lovely face because your makeup brushes are dirty and you need to wash them. And of course, I'm not speaking from personal experience.

Anyway, if you're looking for the perfect cleanser for your makeup brushes or sponges, then don't fret! We're here to rescue you from bacteria-ridden brushes. Just keep scrolling for a few of our favorite picks.

If you're on a low budget or if you just don't want to go out and buy something super expensive, you can try out this DIY makeup brush cleanser. It's something I have personally used since I was in high school and you only need two things: antibacterial dish soap and extra virgin olive oil. Just mix two parts dish soap with one part olive oil, swirl your brush in the mixture, and then rinse. Simple, easy, and cheap.

Not going to lie, I thought that the BeautyBlender solid cleanser was a bit of gimmick when I first started using the makeup sponge. However, after trying it out on my brushes, this cleanser truly gets your brushes clean quickly. Also, if you're using a BeautyBlender, then this cleanser is gentle enough so that the material won't break down after only a few uses.
