Makeup Brushes, Part III: Professional Brush Cleaners

Welcome to Part III of FabSugar's detailed look at make-up brushes: professional make-up brush cleaners. Now that you understand the importance of cleaning your grimy make-up brushes, here are my top picks for make-up brush cleaning solvents for those of you who don't like the do-it-yourself method.

Trish McEvoy Makeup Brush Cleaner is my personal fave. It's a quick and easy spray bottle that you can directly spray onto your lush brushes. Buy the 4-ounce bottle here for $18.

Clinique Make-Up Brush Cleanser thoroughly cleans build-up from the brush. Just pump one short spritz onto each side of the makeup brush and use a tissue to wipe away grime. Allow approximately two minutes to dry before use. Buy it here for $12.50

To see the rest,

Laura Mercier Brush Cleaner kills unwanted bacteria without drying or damaging the bristles on your precious brushes. Use the cap of the bottle for dipping and gently dip the brush into the cleanser. The formula will evaporate without leaving a filmy residue. Buy it here for $18.

M·A·C Brush Cleanser is unique because it not only disinfects your brushes but is also especially designed to extend the life of your high-quality tools. It has a great, fresh scent and it dries quickly. Buy it here for $9.

Has anyone tried the antibacterial brushes yet?

The MAC brush cleaner is awesome. Just a little squirt, massage it in your brushes, holding them downward (so the water/cleaner doesn't get up in the handles and break down the glue) and rinse with lukewarm water, lying them flat to dry.

Or, you could just use mild facial soap or baby shampoo. That's what all the pros I've spoken with do.....
