How To Clean AND Dry Your Makeup Brushes in Under 30 Seconds Each

I love applying my makeup with clean brushes BUT washing makeup brushes is my MOST HATED makeup chore EVER!

I especially hate waiting the 24 hours needed for my brushes to dry! 

I usually lay my freshly washed brushes on a towel in the kitchen overnight and sometimes longer waiting for them to dry. This totally annoys the crap out of my family when they want to use the same kitchen bench to make their breakfast and lunch, but I need to lay my brushes somewhere to dry!

Well thanks to the brilliant StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner I have solved all my above dilemmas! 

I no longer hate brush cleaning, in fact I actually enjoy it and my brushes dry almost INSTANTLY! 

With the StylPro it now takes me 30 seconds to clean AND dry each makeup brush!

In Under 30 Seconds Each

Please note that I used Hyperlapse to film the above video,
making it four times faster than real life.

So let's look at the steps involved in cleaning and drying your makeup brushes using the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner.

1. Select the right sized collar to securely fit your brush handle.

The StylPro is suitable for cleaning both synthetic and natural brushes of all sizes.

2. Attach the brush in it's collar to the StylPro.

3. Add 4ml of any liquid soap or brush cleanser into the StylPro bowl. I use Johnson's Baby Shampoo as it's gentle and effective in cleaning my brushes. It's also cheap and is what I used when I hand washed my brushes. 

Alternatively StylPro does have it's own Makeup Brush Cleaning Solution if you prefer, which is reportedly good for cleaning non water soluble makeup such as foundation off your brushes.

4. Add water to the StylPro bowl.


Add Water To The StylPro Bowl.

Make sure the water level is no higher than half the height of your makeup brush's bristles. This is to ensure the water doesn't get into the metal ferrule.

5. Softly dunk the brush up and down in the liquid for 5 seconds.

6. Gently press the brush down in the bowl and turn on the StylPro. Gently life the StylPro. the brush will start to spin rapidly causing the liquid to splash up. Slowly move the brush up and down for 10 seconds keeping the brush under the water level at all times.

7. Gradually lift the spinning brush out of the liquid but keep it inside the bowl, spinning, for 10 seconds. The water, cleanser and dirt will be spun out of the bristles. Turn off the StylPro.

8. Reshape the bristles with your fingers if necessary. 

The brush is now clean AND dry AND ready to use again in under 30 seconds! No wonder I'm in love with this amazing device!

After using the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner for the past month I am so impressed with it! I can't imagine ever going back to manually washing and leaving my brushes to dry for 24 hours again!

  1. I'm going to admit, I didn't ever clean my brushes, that is until my daughter pointed out how disgusting it was. This will make life much easier.

  4. Wow. This is really cool. If I had one of these I'd clean my brushes a lot more often. I recently used coconut oil to break up the foundation glued to my brush. It worked a dream.

    1. I haven't actually used my kabuki brushes in ages and thus haven't needed to wash them. I think it would still work as you attach the collar and Stylpro making it longer and enabling you to hold it outside the bowl. I'll have to use my kabuki brush, get it dirty and then use the StylPro to clean it and let you know how it goes.

  14. I don't wear makeup- other than lipstick occasionally - but I tried to use some BB cream at Christmas when in NZ cos it was cold and I thought I wouldn't sweat it off and my friend suggested I use a sponge... Of course I had nothing of the kind!

  29. Wow what a nifty invention! I rarely wear makeup, but I always wash my brushes afterwards anyway, using a Sigma cleaning glove + some natural shampoo. It's one of those chores I don't like doing, but I know needs to be done because I wouldn't like getting gunk all over my face!
