I am not one to clean my makeup brushes on a regular, but when I do I like using elf Brush Shampoo. On average I spend 35-45 minutes getting ready for work (takes longer the older you get), and it only took a few extra minutes to clean the brushes. I let them air dry flat on a paper towel and they were ready to be put away before bedtime. I remember sending a Twitter message to Sam Fine and his recommendation was to air dry brushes flat as opposed to on an angle.
I purchased the elf Brush Shampoo at Target and this desk organizer from Goodwill, it’s perfect to hold my brushes .
