Cleaning your makeup brushes can be daunting if you don't have the right cleaner. This is the easiest and best makeup brush cleaner around.

Sephora's Dry Makeup Brush Cleaner Spray

Cleaning your makeup brushes seems like an arduous task. It's not even the process itself that intimidates me, it's more that I don't think I'll do it correctly. I have this irrational fear that my makeup brushes will stay wet for weeks on end after, never drying and forcing impatient me to try to use them too soon and streak wet, dark lines of makeup across my cheeks.

This Dry Clean Instant Dry Brush Cleaner Spray from Sephora's Collection changed the makeup brush cleaning game for me. It's exactly how the name describes, a dry cleaner, with no strings attached or hidden complicated steps or extra product or tools needed. You literally just spray this cleaner onto your makeup brushes and wipe the brushes on a paper towel or tissue until they swipe clear (like how you used to test if paint brushes were clean in elementary school art class).

The brushes are ready for immediate reuse after getting cleaned this way, which means my irrational fear of permanently wet brushes leading to streaky makeup are guaranteed fallacy. Is this the best makeup brush cleaner out there? It may sound like hyperbole, but I really think it is. There's no mess to clean up after use, and your brushes are fresh and primed for makeup application right away. Can you think of what else you would want from a makeup brush cleaner? Go ahead, I'll wait.
