FYI: Disinfecting Your Makeup

Happy Black Friday!  Did anyone brave the crowds and pick up some deals?

I didn't go out, since there wasn't anything that really interested me.  Anddd, I should be saving money!  But I did recently buy a palette (that I will do another post on soon) from Marshalls.  I hesitated a little since it was open, but it didn't look like it had been touched.  Plus, it was a really great deal, compared to the original price!  Besides, all the eyeshadows were in order, no cracks or missing pieces or dips in the product, etc.  But I thought I'd be safe and disinfect them.  Just in case, since it's better safe than sorry.

I remember reading somewhere that you could take a tissue with alcohol on it and wipe the top layer of your powder products.  But, I wasn't exactly sure and didn't want to ruin the product before I had a chance to use it, so I Googled it.  Found my answer and thought I'd share!

Basically, you spray your products with 91% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and let it dry. No damage done and you've got clean products! If you can't find the 91%, I read that you can also use 70%, which is more widely available and what most people have in their medicine cabinets/bathrooms. From what I read, the percentage is just how fast the alcohol will dry; higher percentage dries faster.  Hope this helps~
