Rinse the soap out with water and remove the excess water from the brushes.
Lay down the brushes on a plain surface under the sun or fan and let it stay there to dry.

Now, take a drop of blue liquid and drop it into a container with water. Dip your brushes in the same liquid so that they can saturate.
Gently pat the bristles of the brush with a clean and dry towel or cloth. It will take off the excess water, dirt, and remaining makeup.
