Seal It

If you are a neat freak, then you are doing yourself a big favor with regards to your cosmetics. If you are bit less tidy, you need to do better. Do not leave your cosmetics and cosmetic tools strewn about uncovered in the bathroom counters, on your makeup table or elsewhere. Doing so invites contamination. Also, if the covers or lids on your cosmetics get lost or broken, either throw the products away or find a way to protect them when they are not being used.

Cosmetic Tools

Brushes, applicators, sponges and other cosmetic tools should always be handled with freshly washed hands. These tools also need to be cleaned regularly with hot water and anti-bacterial soap. It’s also best to avoid using old applicators in newer products. If you break the tip off your new mascara brush, your solution shouldn’t be to use the one from some old mascara at the bottom of your makeup bag.


No matter how close you are to an individual, there comes a time when you need to draw boundaries. One of those moments is when it comes to sharing makeup. Don’t do it, not even using your own tools. If someone has an eye infection or suffers from cold sores and her cosmetics get contaminated, that you dip your own brush into a product will not prevent the spread of those germs.

Makeup Counters

There are women who wouldn’t think of allowing a stranger to use their cosmetics, yet they will happily indulge in makeup counter samples. This is sharing of perhaps the worst sort. Almost all of those shared products are likely to be contaminated with something undesirable. Never put any of those products on your face. If you want to test them, do it on your wrist or the back of your hand, and afterward, make sure to wash your hands before they come into contact with your face again.


Do not allow saliva to get anywhere near your eyes. Some women will thoughtlessly lick their fingers and wipe their eyebrows, attempt to keep eyelashes clump-free or to remove unwanted makeup from their eyes. Saliva contains bacteria and such practices are essentially begging for a problem.

Contact Lens Wearers

People who wear contact lenses need to be more careful than other cosmetics users because items can get trapped against the eye and increase their risk of infection. Always put your contact lenses in before you put your makeup on and remove them after you have removed your makeup.
