The Lazy Way To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

We all know that cleaning your makeup brushes is important for a variety of reasons—bacteria build-up can cause breakouts, plus dirty brushes don’t pick up product as well—but we’re the first to admit it’s easy to forget. The solution? Sephora’s Brush It Off Cleansing Brush Wipes ($16 for 18). (Think of these as the equivalent of a face wipe. Meaning: it’s not a replacement for washing your face, but it’ll do in a pinch!)

Each individually-wrapped wipe is the perfect size to clean three shadow or liner brushes, two powder or blush brushes, or one dense kabuki or foundation brush. The cleansing formula the cloths are soaked in effectively removes build-up without being greasy. Plus, it doesn’t require rinsing! Just give it about five minutes to dry. Clean brushes in a flash? We’re fans.
