We know that most of the eye and lip products are applied directly to the client, and that may not be a hygienic approach. Therefore, makeup artist must use disposable mascara and lip wands for each application to prevent bacterias from entering the body.

In order to avoid direct application straight from the packaging, products can be poured out on a palette. This technique will make sure that makeup is applied in a contactless manner. You do not want germs to be transferred to your skin, and it is a clean process.

6. Does Not Double Dip

A highly professional makeup artist will not double-dip any product. Instead, they will spare lipstick or any product they are working with on a palette. To ensure safety standards, the artist will use disposable tools or sanitise them before reusing. Double-dips may turn out to be dangerous during the outspread of the virus or be prone to it.
