How to Get Super Clean Makeup Brushes for Super Cheap

I have tried A LOT of different makeup brush cleansers. I have tried high end, drugstore, gentle face washes, everything. Some of them have been good, some of them have been okay. But this is the first one I actually liked well enough to take the time to share!


This is an all-natural organic bar of soap. I got mine at Target for about $4 but you can also buy them on Amazon in several different scents.

This bar of soap busted through my grimiest foundation brushes and left them completely clean with so little effort, which I LOVE because I always want to be gentle with my brushes. This is honestly, the fastest and easiest way I have ever cleaned my brushes and probably the cleanest they have ever been! It even got my beauty blender spotlessly clean.

Wet the brush and gently rub it across the soap

Use your (wet) hand and swirl the brush to work up a lather and get it super clean. Repeat if it really needs a deep cleaning. Once its clean run it under warm water and/or continue to swirl it on your hand to work out all the soap and the water run clear. Reshape your brush and lay it out to dry.

That’s it! So quick and easy. Give it a try, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

How do you clean your makeup brushes? What are your favorite products, tips or tricks?
