Of course tomorrow you will be over at some store trying on samples of makeup. There’s absolutely no reason on earth to deny yourself the pleasure except one: the makeup samples you will be putting on you are likely to be swarming with bacteria.
This warning was issued by a team of researchers at Rowan University in New Jersey. Lead researcher Elizabeth Brooks, a former biological sciences professor, said that there are chances to break out or get pink eye from shop testers.
So here are a few hints how you can enjoy the try-out fun and keep on the safe side.
Lipstick should be applied with a cotton swab only after you have taken off the top layer with another cotton swab or a piece of tissue.
Eye shadows should be tried on your brow bone and not on your eyelids. Once again, keep a cotton swab handy.
Lotions are much safer if they come from a tube or another type of closed container as compared to jars.
Blush is usually applied with a store-supplied makeup brush, so before trusting it better clean it with an alcohol-based spray and wait for a couple of minutes to let it dry.
Solid foundation will be safer on your skin when you wipe away the top layer and apply it carefully with a disposable makeup sponge.
