If you are wanting to know how to clean you makeup for your kit, there is a company that makes products just for that. Its called BeautySoClean and they have everything for cleaning lipsticks, eye shadows and everything else. You could also just wipe off the top layer of everything if you don't want to spend the money. Hope this helps!

I've just been wiping the top of everything off.
With powder cakes I usually just use a tissue to wipe it off. But with lipstick palettes, and cream concealer's or foundation palettes I use a cotton swab dampened with a little bit of rubbing alcohol just to make sure the cream stuff gets extra clean.
Eyeliner pencils I usually just sharpen to get the first layer off.

When I can afford it I'd like to get actual cleaner mist stuff, would help tremendously when I get to the end of application and can't remember just what I used, could spray it all and not have to worry! :)
