Use a brush cleaner once a week (try Colorescience Pro Makeup Tools Brush Cleaner Spray, $10). Spray it "onto a Kleenex and sweep the brush back and forth to remove the makeup," advises Zizzo.
For a deeper clean, wash your brushes with shampoo. "Add a drop of shampoo to a cup half full of warm water. Swirl the brushes around and then thoroughly rinse, advises Zizzo.
