 Basic make-up care tips : 
  • Alway steriles your hands before you applying make-up
  • Re-cap after use any cosmetics product
  • Do not share makeup. (due to hygiene)
  • Store make-up in a cool, dry place
  • Keep make-up out reach of children
  • NEVER – put your fingers into  your make-up. Placing your fingers into makeup will transfer the bacteria from your hands into your makeup. Use sterile applicators, brushes, or makeup sponge.
  • Don’t use water or saliva to ease the application of a product. Rather use mixing mediums. Water & saliva contains their own kind of bacteria and it will endanger your make-up.
