Don’t dip your finger into the bottle – Apply with a brush or sponge. - bacteria!

  • Don’t double dip.

Clean brushes and sponges frequently  - bacteria!

  • Hang brushes upside down to dry – it helps keep the shape and let any extra water drip out, not down where it can gather  - bacteria!
  • Wash or replace applicators frequently - bacteria!

Do you have an eye infection? You’ll need to throw out all the eye make up and applicators you used from the time you developed symptoms. The virus or bacteria that caused the infection has probably taken up residence in your make up, so using those cosmetics again could cause you to develop another infection.
