Every time you enter a mall or a store there are always many make-up products to try on before you decide to purchase it. Generally, the stores will offer personal complimentary products, such as cotton balls and Q-tips so that the customer can try the make-up on, without putting the item directly on their face. While many make-up artist may use the same products on different people, they take several precautions by using some of these disposable applicators for each of their clients. They also wash their brushes between clients. If an individual ever approaches a professional make-up artist who does not look like they are taking these precautions, they should find another make-up artist. There are a lot of things you can share with people, however, make-up is not one of them. Make-up can quickly become contaminated with bacteria that causes strep throat, or Staph Infections. E-Coli is also a risk of sharing make-up with multiple people. E-Coli is known to contaminate food. This bacteria is spread in non sanitary conditions, usually when people do not wash their hands after using the restroom. Any person can easily share this bacteria when they touch a surface of any kind.
According to dermatologists, sharing make-up is a no no. When people share make-up, they are virtually sharing germs. Also, make-up that is not disposed of in a certain amount of time can lead to infections. When you walk into a store to try on make-up, no one is aware of how long that product has been out. It is always best to wash your face as soon as you get home from trying on make-up. Stay away from sharing the following:
- Make-up brushes
- Lip products
- Eye products
