Cream Products:
When getting out cream products Use a palette knife or spatula
Use 90% rubbing alcohol to sterilize after each use.
 
Powder Products:
Wipe powder products with a tissue after each use. Try Beauty So Clean for cleaning powder products. Face powders, bronzers, powder products replace after a year.
 
Foundations:
Replace your foundations every six months. Use foundations with a pump they last longer than liquid foundations without a pump. Foundations which are a cream foundation use a spatula and scoop out a small amount on a stainless steel palette.
