Tools of the Trade: Makeup Brush Cleaners…

Makeup Brush Cleaners

If I’m painfully honest cleaning makeup brushes is probably one of my biggest pet hates about being a makeup junkie. The thought of having to spend half an hour lathering, washing and rinsing just fills me with dread – there’s so much more important things I could be doing, such as procrastinating on YouTube *sigh*

However to ensure my tools stay free of any bacterial buildup & unwelcome beauty bugs it’s a necessary evil, and one I should probably embrace a whole lot more than I do – after all, what’s more satisfying than a pot full of fluffy clean makeup brushes?! Needless to say I’m always on the hunt for intriguing little gadgets that claim to be the epitome of greatness. Particularly when it comes to saving time and hassle in getting those fibres squeaky clean.

So if you’re on the hunt for some brush cleaning paraphernalia pull up a pew & check out this lot…

Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Mat

Sigma Express Brush Cleaning Mat

With suction cups to adhere to the bottom of your sink (or any smooth surface), this multi-textured ‘Express’ mat makes brush cleaning a breeze (it’s 32% smaller than the original – ideal for small or unique sinks, as well as travel). Quick and convenient, the seven patented textures help your cleansing product to access the ‘roots’ of even densely packed foundation brushes – dissolving every speck of product build-up so your tools are left spotless (and sterile). Made from robust silicone, the mat is hygienic (it won’t harbor bacteria), and is easily stored.

StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner & Drier

Regular cleaning of makeup brushes is critical to avoid the build up of bacteria, which can cause spots, skin abscesses, infections and cold sores. The beauty of the StylPro is that it’s really simple to use. You just attach any makeup brush using one of eight collars, before dunking it for 10 seconds, spinning for another 10 seconds and then drying for five to 10 seconds. That’s your makeup brush completely clean and dry in less time than it takes to choose a shade of lipstick!

  1. Wow, that BrushPearl looks great! For the lazy person… although, I’d need 20 of those to do all my brushes LOL.
    I have something similar to that Revolution tool, the “brush egg” – it’s really handy. And inexpensive!
    That reminds me, I’ve got about 50 brushes waiting to be cleaned… ugh.
