I like keeping a small spritz bottle of MAC Brush Cleanser on hand for quickly cleaning brushes in between color changes. I basically mist the brush, wipe it on a paper towel, and proceed to do a color change. I started doing this after using Sephora Brush Wipes for a long time, these were basically wipes you could use to wipe down brushes in between uses.
If you’re on a bit of a beauty budget you can do the same with $3 E.L.F. Studio Daily Brush Cleaner.

This is fab as it’s only $3 for near a 9 oz bottle. Some people prefer baby shampoo for brush cleaning but I like MAC Brush Cleanser myself to be honest and prefer it over Baby Shampoo however if you’re dedicated to inexpensive you might wanna check out E.L.F. Brush Cleanser.
This isn’t good for hardcore brush cleaning but I like setting it up during my daily shadow application as I can quickly clean a brush to apply a different shade so my eye look doesn’t get muddy as I blend. I simply spritz on, wipe on a paper towel, and head in for the next color in my palette.
Some folks have reviewed it and said they felt the smell was strong but I just get a fresh, kinda vanilla-ish scent, very pleasant to my nose.
I wouldn’t use this for removing hardcore makeup for my brushes or doing a major clean as it doesn’t work great at getting everything off brushes including something as simple as powder shadow. However, for in between cleanings to get brushes fresh again this is great or to use during eyeshadow application it’s great as well. Sprtiz it on, swipe it on a paper towel, wave the brush around, and it dries down almost instantly so you can proceed to follow up with your next shadow shade.
- Anyone who wants a quick way to move between colors in a palette without creating a muddy look (spritz this on and follow up with your next shade!)
- Anyone prone to eye infections (this is an easy way to disinfect brushes in between major cleanings)!
- Anyone wanting a brush cleaner that removes it all (this doesn’t remove everything but works more as a quick fix in between major brush cleanings).
I remain true to MAC Brush Cleaner but I love E.L.F. for quickie cleanings in between doing major cleanings. Plus I love keeping it around for quickie cleanings to switch eyeshadow shades since it dries down so quickly and prevents muddy blending particularly when I’m using dark eyeshadow.
