I can be O.C. in a lot of things- and my makeups are not an exception. Well, I guess that’s something good for a makeup artist. I’m sure my clients would appreciate that all my compacts, palettes, etc. are clean and NOT contaminated by bacteria. I remember when I used to have my makeup done by someone else, I always wonder if all the cosmetics and tools used on me are sanitized. I’m always afraid to break out or get allergic reactions. Aside from these fears, most of you know how much one makeup could cost. Beauty addicts invest on quality makeups, so it’s just proper to take good care of them. Remember, once a makeup is contaminated, even if it hasn’t reached its expiration date, you’ll have to throw it away! Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. Now, how do I exactly keep my makeup sanitized?
- No sharing of mascara wands! Lashes are very close to the eyes. It’s important that everything we put near our eyes are sanitized to prevent eye infection. Use a disposable mascara wand brush instead.
- It’s ultimately important to have clean brushes all the time. Wash them every use with a brush cleaner.
- For cream and gel products, use a spatula to scoop the right amount of product to be used and place it on your mixing plate. Creams and gels can get contaminated easily, so I prefer not dipping my brush directly to them.
- Those who apply foundation using sponge, use disposable sponges.
- For lipsticks, you can use a spatula to get some product and apply the lipstick with a lip brush. You can also use a disposable lip brush to get product directly from the tube.
- No sharing of lip gloss applicator too please! There are disposable lip gloss applicators, which are helpful for easy touch ups as well.
If you’ve noticed, most of my tips include the use of disposables. Okay, I’m hearing violent reactions already. I understand how expensive they could be.
