1. Find a makeup brush cleaner or make your own

While a little water can go a long way in the short-term, you should have a makeup brush cleaner on hand for deep-cleaning sessions. You can buy brush cleaner in the makeup section of most stores, but a gentle shampoo like baby shampoo will also do the trick. There are also many DIY brush-washing solutions available if you want to try your hand at making your own cleaner made from all-natural ingredients.
