Hygienic Practices for Makeup Artists

As a makeup artist, carrying products for all occasions, skin types, and various pigments, can create a big chaotic mess. Furthermore, using products on multiple people can warrant a fear of spreading germs and other harmful bacteria. Which could lead the client to wonder…how do you know your makeup artist is implementing professional hygienic practices? Here are a few things that you will ALWAYS see when using my services: sanitized products, cleansed brushes, disposable applicators, and organized items.

Sanitized Products

Lipsticks, lip pencils, eye pencils, and eyelash curlers are amongst products that are sanitized with alcohol. Products that can be squeezed or scooped out onto my artist’s palette are done so that the makeup is your own, untouched, and unshared.

Cleansed Brushes

Brush Cleanser from MAC Cosmetics is my personal favorite to sanitize and condition my brushes. My brushes are washed with hot water and sudsy soaps to give them a thorough cleanse after appointments. My brush belt is also wiped down for a fresh and neat appearance.

Disposable Applicators

Have you ever seen someone use their mascara or lipgloss wand directly onto another’s eyes or mouth? If you’ve ever witnessed this less than sanitary and unprofessional technique, you’re not alone. I’ve seen this happen too many times and cringe every time it does. Be assured that I carry ample supply of lip and mascara disposable wands and I never double dip.

Organized Items

When I first started out building my kit, there weren’t these fantastic bags and cases as readily available as now. My kit is completely organized with my Zuca bag, with each compartment categorized.

I basically imagine how I would want to feel when getting any service done- cleanliness, professionalism, efficiency, and personal customer service. I keep the client in mind the entire time. Getting ready for a special event shouldn’t be stressful, uncomfortable, or dirty! It should be fun, fresh, and relaxing! If you haven’t yet, make an appointment and experience my makeup services. You can book directly through me, Facebook, or Salon Solis.
