Hygiene & Sanitation Practices:

As a professional Makeup Artist, you will be working with many different clients. It is of utmost importance for you to practice sanitary techniques with each individual client. Whether it is before makeup application (preparing your makeup kit), during makeup application (not mixing certain products, using disposable tools, and being mindful of the skin preparation and application), or after (cleaning your brushes and kit for the next client), it is crucial that you follow these steps each and every time you are working. There are no shortcuts to remain sanitary and apply proper hygienic care to each client and the products you use on them to create your artistry. Hygienic care and sanitation will serve as one of the biggest building blocks in your business to create growing clientele and lifelong loyal clients!

Products you must have in your kit to remain sanitary:

Additional steps to remain sanitary:

Professional tip: you can cut off the actual applicators in your product (for lip, cream, eyes, etc) – this way there is no temptation to accidentally dip. If you have double dipped your product in your kit, you will need to throw it away, no exceptions, as there is no way to sanitize it after.

Setting up your makeup station:

As a freelance artist you will need to have a traveling and sanitary workspace. Always clean your surface with paper towels (and alcohol if the finish on the table is OK) to prepare your makeup station space. It should always look clean and organized.

If a client has an open wound or condition (pink eye, etc) that you don’t feel comfortable applying makeup on, you can kindly refuse the application.
