Make-up products tend to accumulate pollen and dust particles. They also develop fungus and hence allergies. We also touch them while doing our client’s make-up. Hence, sanitizing and disinfecting our hands, make-up products and tools after every use ensures safety in general.
Best ways to use make-up tools and brushes?
- With lipsticks and eyeliners, cut out a certain portion, put it on the tray with a
spatula, apply as needed and throw away the excess
- For mascara, use disposable wands and keep aside the main brush
- Sharpen the eye pencils before and after the use and don’t forget to disinfect
“Hygiene and safety protocols should be followed by all make-up artistes daily, irrespective of the pandemic.”
According to you, flawless make-up needs flawless skin. Your skincare advice?
- Rub ice cubes on the face for 5-10 minutes. It closes pores, refreshes the face, targets puffiness under the eyes and reduces swelling, rashes or pimples
- Massage vitamin C serum for 5 minutes and moisturize to hydrate the face
- Use water-based products as the make-up becomes water-proof and gives a lovely glow and dewy finish.
