Your face shouldn't suffer because you're slacking ways

Oh, the joy of cleaning your makeup brushes (insert sarcasm here).


Here’s the thing: if you want to maintain your best skincare routine, you’re going to have to add cleaning your makeup brushes to the list. It’s imperative because makeup that builds up in your brushes causes bacteria to spread all over your face when you apply your makeup. And that, my friends, is gross.


So, let me make this easy for you.


Below, I’ve listed the top notch, easiest makeup brush cleansers that you can use without any hassle. There’s no mixing, no scrubbing, nothing. You just dip, rinse and lay your brushes flat. Is that good enough? I sure hope so.


P.S, they’re not cheap, but they’re good!


Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner and Cleanser Set, $24 (Sephora)

You’ll love this product because it comes with a cleaner and tin. You don’t have to do anything. Just pour the cleaner in the tin, swish around your brushes, and then rinse them. Then, lay them flat on a towel to dry overnight. Seriously, they’ve done all of the work for you.


Beautyblender Blender Cleanser Solid, $15.95 (Sephora)

Here’s one for the ladies who love a beauty blender and makeup brushes. Again, all you have to do is wet your beauty blender or brush, swirl it around in the soap solid, and rinse. That’s all.


SEPHORA Collection Dry Clean: Solid Brush Cleaner, $14 (Sephora)

Another solid soap cleaner that makes it so easy for you, there will be no excuse as to why your brushes aren’t clean. The only thing is, you can’t clean your beauty blender with this one (so don’t try to). Wet, swirl, lather and rinse. You’ll be done in no time.
