Our makeup collection can get out of hand a little bit. The oily brushes, discolored lipstick, stained beauty blenders, etc needs some TLC sometimes. It’s important to keep our brushes and beauty products clean as possible to prevent bacteria infection.
Most young women tend to apply conventional means of cleansing when dealing with makeup kits such as washing brushes with tap water, cleaning tools with normal tissues, etc. Such methods need to be reviewed as they can cause facial health hazards, especially when one is a makeup artist for a profession.
Below are some essential tips we will simply guide you through this and appease to those you work with and your very own skin.
1. Sanitize Your Eye-Shadow Palettes
Sanitize your eye-shadow palettes by spritzing them with a sanitizing spray to avoid bacteria getting around our eyes when we apply them. Just imagine going blind from unkept makeup. The devastation is unimaginable and you do not need to reach that stage to start securing yourself. Ensure you apply this method as much as possible.
2. Clean Lipstick Pencils With Alcohol
Clean up your lipstick by using rubbing alcohol and tissue to remove the unwanted colors from them and clearing out infection. Lipstick has been a primary transfer tool of bacteria when it comes to makeup. Especially with girls that use friends’ makeup for emergencies, or working as a model with a makeup artist.
Remember, the mouth is where we eat, and residue can leave a lot of unwanted bacteria, and as much as we hate to state it, oral sex infections can also be transferred with lipsticks. So once again rub it with alcohol and remove any irregular colors and marks.
3. Soak Your Make Up Brushes In Warm Soapy Water
Deep clean your makeup brushes and beauty blenders by soaking and washing them in a warm soapy water, use your palm to rub off the oil, and dab on tissue paper. Leave to air dry. Keeping your brushes clean is a very essential tool for skincare. Believe it or not, your skin breathes.
4. Use Sanitizing Towels For Lip Pencils & More
Clean around your powder palettes, eye, and lip pencils with a sanitizing towel and organize them neatly.
