For those of you who may not realize it, disinfecting your makeup is a necessary process to prevent the transmission of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other disease-causing microorganisms.

Knowing this, many makeup artists/users use rubbing alcohol to disinfect their makeup. There is a super complex and “sciencey” (yes I made that up) explanation regarding the “better” concentration of rubbing alcohol to disinfect makeup. However, I’ve decided to spare you the details and just give it to you straight! If you’re interested in the science behind my suggestion, leave a comment down below and I will be more than happy to make a blog post about it.
