Flu season is here so we have a few tips on how to keep your makeup germ free. A recent story in the Huffington Post has some brilliant tips. Alcohol, hand sanitizer and antibacterial brush cleanser are three great products to keep in your bathroom and makeup case. Perfect to clean off the top of your lipstick. A pencil sharpener is also handy as it’s the quickest and most efficient way to keep your brow, eye and lip pencils sanitized. If you use makeup brushes, be sure to wash them several times a month; at the very least, when they are visibly dirty. This is also the perfect time to take stock of what you actually use. No point in keeping products that you don’t use, and this will lessen the likelihood of holding onto something too long. Try not to share makeup with friends. Never share mascara or eyeliner!
