Here’s How to Sanitize Your Makeup (It's Actually Pretty Cool)

We already know the importance of cleaning our makeup brushes on the reg, but have you ever thought to sanitize your actual makeup? Treat your skin to a fresh, dirt-free application by giving your products a good scrub down. All you need is some rubbing alcohol and a spray bottle.

To Sanitize Powders and Palettes:

Fill your spray bottle with rubbing alcohol, spritz the powder directly and let it air-dry.

To Sanitize Liquid Foundation:

Dip a cotton round in a bit of rubbing alcohol and give the foundation bottle’s nozzle and cap a solid cleaning.

To Sanitize Pencils and Sharpeners:

Your sharpener can sit in a small bowl filled with rubbing alcohol for about five minutes before you wipe it clean. Pencils, however, should be sprayed and wiped with a cotton round.
