If the brushes have been used for cream-based makeup, they need a deeper clean than the one you used for the powder-based makeup.

  1. Take your brush rinse through warm water. Make sure the brushes are angled down into the stream of water. Next fill some water in a small bowl or cup ¼ cup of warm water.
  2. Pour some baby shampoo to the water. 1 teaspoon of baby shampoo into the cup and still gently to stir well. Dip the brush into the mixture and swirl, remove the brush from the mixture. To loosen up the makeup, gently massage with the soapy water into the bristles with your fingers.
  3. Rinse the bristles under warm water. Continue to massage the bristles while running them under the water until it completely clear then dry the bristles with a towel. Gently squeeze it with your fingers.
  4. Dry the brushes dry, do not lay them on a towel at all as that can cause mildew. Instead, set the brush down on a counter, with the bristle part hanging over the edge. When the brushes are completely dry, fluff the bristles a bit. Now your brushes are now ready to use.
