Ask any makeup junkie and they will tell you, makeup brushes are an integral part of creating a snatched look. Using the right brushes will help you create a flawless, airbrushed finish whether you’re applying foundation, building a smoky eye or trying out a new Korean beauty trend.
Over time, however, as product and pigments collect in the bristles, they can turn into a breeding ground for bacteria which can then transfer to your skin, if the brushes are not washed regularly.
To help you get started on a cleaning routine for your makeup brushes, we’ve rounded up 13 brush cleansers. These range from the budget-friendly options (the most affordable costs only $2!) to instant brush cleansers for days when you’re pressed for time.
