6 Tips For Keeping Your Makeup Clean

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my readers!

ok lets moving on........

For today post i'm gonna share this 6 tips for keeping your makeup clean :)

Knowing how to keep makeup clean is very important. After all, who wants to get eye infections or other nasty conditions? You might not take much to notice expiration dates on cosmetics, but they are there for a reason. When it comes to makeup, cleanliness definitely is a virtue, so here are some tips on how to keep makeup clean.

1. Use Tools 

The first point regarding how to keep makeup clean is to always use tools. This is especially important where the product is in a pot. Never put your fingers directly into a product; if you can't squeeze them out, use a spatula. Always use brushes for any kind of powder or cream makeup.

2. Wash Brushes

When did you last clean your makeup brushes? Chances are, it wasn't that recently. Brushes should be clean regularly, using a gentle product like baby shampoo or even some dish soap. Once washed, lay the brushes out on a towel and leave to dry.

3. Shelf Life

It might seem ridiculous to have a “use by” date on makeup, and it can also be annoying when you don’t use the product up in time. However, you don’t want any problems from using makeup that’s too old. This is especially true of mascara, so replace that regularly, even if it means throwing some away.  This is another way to keep makeup clean.

4. Don't Share Makeup

The most common tips. Don't ever share makeup if you don't want to have those pimples pop out on your face, or any other skin problem :P

5. Wash Hands!  *IMPORTANT*

Make sure your hand is clean before applying any makeup. Always always and always wash your hand before you touch any product!

6. Close Lids Tightly

Make sure don't forget to close the lids firmly on any makeup product. I'm sure you don't want any bacteria to go in. And don't ever forget about closing any of your product like your eyeshadow, foundation, concealer or anything to avoid from any spillage.

That's all for the 6 tips that i share it here. Make sure keep your makeup clean! :)
