Powders and palettes: Put rubbing alcohol in the spray bottle and use it to spray directly over the powder. After that you just need to leave the powder to air-dry.

Makeup brushes: Sprinkle bristles as well as the stalk of the brushes with rubbing alcohol. Clean and dry the brushes using a soft cotton pad. Your makeup brushes can also be cleansed with alcohol-based brush cleansers or mild shampoos.
