I am a Certified Sanitation Specialist through the Sanitation Conversation program and have successfully completed courses in Barbicide and Blood Borne Pathogens.
Below you’ll find detailed information on my sanitation practices before, during and after your makeup application.
Before you sit in the makeup chair, the handles, seat and side trays are all wiped down with Lucas-Cide disinfectant. This is similar to Barbicide and kills 99.999% of bacteria, viruses, and fungus in 60 seconds.
I wash my hands with Hibiclens, an antibacterial, antiseptic hand wash used by healthcare professionals.
Disposable mascara wands and lip wands are always used.
All cream and liquid products are scooped out of their container with a sanitized, stainless steel spatula. I work from a palette, ensuring no double dipping or cross contamination occurs.
I do not use sponges like beautyblenders as they cannot be properly sanitized.
I do not use felt tip liners as they cannot be properly sanitized.
All pencil products, eyeliners and lip liners are sanitized with 70% alcohol, sharpened, then sprayed again with alcohol.
Powder palettes are sanitized after each client with a cosmetic sanitizing spray called BeautySoClean
After the day is done, I wipe my kit, palettes and other tools down with Lucas-Cide
Brushes are washed after each client and dried overnight. No brush is reused and if it drops on the floor, it is put aside, not to be used again.
