Cleaning Makeup Brushes in 4 Easy Steps

There are two types of makeup brushes – natural or a mixture of synthetic and vegan. Both of these types of makeup brushes require different care.


Because the bristles of natural brushes are sourced from animal hair, the bristles are porous and require conditioning to maintain pliability. Detergent used for wool or cashmere is suggested.


Synthetic or vegan brushes often have bristles made of plastic or nylon. Rather than product absorbing into the bristles, the oils from the product sit on the surface, requiring a detergent that cuts grease, such as dish washing liquid.


Clients should complete the following process once a week to clean makeup brushes.


1. Fill a mug about one-third full of warm water and add about a quarter sized amount of the cleaning agent.


2. Swirl the brush in the water until the brush is its original color.


3. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.


4. Lay the brush over the edge of a counter to air dry.
