Tips on Cleaning Makeup Brushes

Makeup brushes can harbor lots of dirt and bacteria, but frequent washing of your makeup brushes can keep them - and your face - clean and healthy.


  • Run the bristles of the makeup brush under warm running water.
  • Apply a small amount of shampoo to bristles and work into a light lather.
  • Rinse bristles thoroughly under running water. You will notice that the water leaving the brush is tinted from old makeup.
  • Continue rinsing until no color leaves the brush.
  • Allow it to air-dry.


  • Many professional makeup artists use a specialized cleaning solution for their brushes.
  • These solutions are available at most beauty supply stores.
