Clean your makeup brushes with soap
Dip the bristles of the brushes in lukewarm water. Put some Marseille soap or mild baby shampoo in the palm of your hand and then apply the wet brush in the soap with gentle circular motions in your palm.
Rinse and repeat the exercise until the brush only clears the water.
Large makeup brushes for are often encrusted with very hard pigments. To remove them, lather the bristles on a silicone glove soaked with water and soap, then rinse. Renew the operation until the pigments have completely disappeared.
Let the brushes dry
You can use the tube-shaped plastic protectors that are provided for purchase. If you have thrown them away, the option of tubular gas bandages – available in pharmacy – works wonders. These techniques have the merit of keeping the shape of the hair intact during drying.
Last solution: simply let the brushes dry in the open air, flat if possible after having wiped them with a sheet of paper towels.
