  • In a large glass bowl, combine all three ingredients and stir to combine. Swirl your makeup brushes in the cleaning solution until thoroughly coated.
  • In a second glass or bowl filled with clean water, swirl the coated brush until rinsed through. You can go back and forth between the cleaning solution and the water as many times as you need to until the brush is completely clean and all color is gone. Sometimes it helps to rinse under the faucet, as well. 
  • When you’re done, simply pat the brush on a clean microfiber cloth and lay flat to dry. I like to let my brushes dry overnight, but it usually takes about 6-8 hours to dry naturally.
