I just wanted to ask how you makeup artists clean your products?
At the moment I'm scraping the makeup out onto a pallete, but surely there is a ln easier more product saving way of avoiding cross contamination?
Is there a particular anti bacteria cleaner you could use to wipe over eyeshadows etc?
Please understand that I am new to this and am just learning so sorry if this is a silly question

I dont understand how some MUAs can not be sanitary. I use a palette to mix things (not the back of my hand) I use that palette for HD blushes, lipsticks, concealer, foundation, etc. I wipe that palette of with a makeup wipe, spray it down with 91% alcohol and wash it when i get home with hot soap and water. I depoted my lipsticks since I find it is easier to just scrape some out instead of always wiping down the lipstick from the tube and it saves space. I stored mine in a small 14 day pill container. Pencils I spray down with 91% alcohol after each use and resharpen to remove anything left over. My eyeshadow, blush, concealer palettes I spray with 91% alcohol after each use as well. I use baby shampoo for my brushes. And I think that's about it.
I also use disposable mascara wands, lipgloss brushes, and sponges. I always have a rag for my dirty brushes as well. I lay them on there and spot clean them at shoots as I go or after each client. But I try to have enough brushes for each person so I wont have to do that, as it takes time.
I would suggest you get the 91% alcohol. Its cheap, easily accessible and it works!
