Many people worry about cross-contamination when using beauty products. Considering the amount of money we spend on our makeup collections, it’s hard to throw things out or justify splurging. To prolong the shelf-life of my collection, I keep my tools and makeup clean and sanitize on a regular basis.
Below is a list of products along with a how-to on keeping them clean and free of germs. On a side note, if you get any kind of infection, consider tossing products you used during that period of time (and in the future remember not to use products you want to keep during an illness). Keep your work areas clean and wash your hands before and after makeup applications.
