DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner

I've honestly tried so many variations of this recipe, and honestly. This is just my goto makeup brush cleaner recipe below. I've even tried the store brought. However, this is the best cost-effective option. I will say, that just because you are purchasing a product at a store, does not mean that it will be better than the homemade version, and vise versa, Trust me!

I received a store brought makeup brush cleaner as a Mother's Day gift, and I was super excited about using the product. It was super watery which would not have been so bad if it actually cleaned my makeup brushes. It was actually individually packaged, which I was excited about if the product actually worked. I ended up throwing the product away because it honestly didn't work, and I had to rewash my brushes with a different product all over again. I know there are some AMAZING store brought cleaners out there. However, if you would like to try a more cost-effective option, and or your rain out of your favorite makeup cleaner. This is a great alternative.

What's your favorite makeup remover?


  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Dawn Dish Soap
1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Store in a glass jar.
