How To Clean And Sanitise Your Makeup Kit If You Have Acne-Prone Skin

Keep your makeup brushes clean and free of foundation and eye shadow debris.

You can use a brush cleanser or paper towels for a quick cleanse. To remove excess makeup within the bristles, wash the makeup brushes with cool or lukewarm water and brush cleaner.

Swirl the brush in your palm while washing them to ensure that no dirt remains stuck inside the bristles. Rinse until they look clean.

For stuff that you can't technically clean, like your foundation cream, the best way to maintain hygiene is by not dipping your fingers in them.

Use sanitary applicators, such as a clean cotton bud, sponge or spatula, to access the product.

Lipstick and concealers Slightly twist up your stick product and then using a cotton bud remove a thin layer.

Then spray the exposed area with isopropyl alcohol to sanitize it. Wipe clean or let it air-dry. It's also a good idea to sanitize your lipstick and concealers at least once a week.

Pencils Sharpen your eyeliner and lipliner pencils before each use. If you're using retractable products, spray some rubbing alcohol onto a cotton pad and wipe the tip of the pencil before using it.
