For some, cleaning makeup brushes is one of the last things they’d probably would want to be doing. For me though, it is rather therapeutic. I want to share the quick, easy, and cost effective way I clean my makeup brushes.
Things you will need:
- Olive oil
- Dish washing liquid
- Sigma brush cleaning mat optional
In a small dish or mug combine a mixture of olive oil and dish soap. Add warm water and stir the ingredients together. I then use my mat from Sigma to scrub it all out and lay the brushes flat to air dry so they are soft, clean, and ready for use the next day!
I have bought expensive brush cleaners from MAC and other brands in the past, but I find that dish soap is just as gentle and gets the job done as well as any name brand product. The olive oil works as a conditioner to soften the brush so it feels like new again. So, if you’re ever in a pinch or on a budget or would just like to try something different, give this brush cleansing treatment a go and let me know what you think!
If you have any other tips or household solutions for savings, feel free to share them or link them in the comments section!

I think at home products like shampoo, conditioner, olive oil and dish soap, all work better than the brush cleaning products that you can buy. They tend to remove more product and I just think that washing with water as well is more hygienic. x
Totally agree! 🙂
