“The best thing to do is clean products whenever possible like wiping tweezers and eyelash curlers down with alcohol,”recommends swiping lipstick with a baby wipe after each use to get rid of surface germs and prevent them from building up.
Your choice of makeup bag could even affect the amount of germs it’s carrying.“Makeup bags come a dime a dozen; however, what you fail to realize is that dark and moist places are breeding grounds for bacteria. If the bag is dark and the makeup is moist, well, you do the math.”
Use a clear makeup bag that allows light in. “Take your makeup bag out of your purse and leave it on your desk so that it gains a small amount of light each day,” LANA LENNOX says.
