Wash your face properly before applying makeup 

Make sure that you start doing your makeup with a fresh face as you don’t want any germs or bacteria to cause breakouts. It also ensures that you don’t clog up your pores. 

Do not share your brushes

Sharing can’t always be caring so make sure you do not share your makeup brushes and lipstick with other people. You are most likely to contract an infection and even sores can be transmitted this way. 

Prefer disposable applicators 

If you are out to buy makeup or wish to try out a sample, try the ones with disposable applicators to minimize the risk of contracting an infection of any kind. 

Close the lids tightly 

Make sure that you seal the lids of your foundation bottles tightly after use. Don’t keep the bottles or makeup palettes exposed to air for too long. 

Disinfect your tools 

Clean your eyelash curlers, tweezers and makeup brushes with a disinfectant regularly. You can also use Isopropyl alcohol for this purpose. Wash the brushes and applicators with soap and water and disinfect them later. 

Keep your products in a cool and dry place 

Store all your make up products away from the direct heat of the sun and in a dry place. Storing your products at an appropriate temperature will make sure that there is no bacterial growth in your makeup products. 

These are a few tips that can help you maintain hygiene when it comes to handling makeup products. Also, throw out all the expired products and wash your hands before using lip balm and moisturizer.
