Rest assured that I am doing everything I can to keep your health and safety in mind including COVID -19 pandemic era sanitation practices and products.
Please note this page and my website are constantly being revised and updated to stay in compliance with local guidelines. (Site revised 02/14/2023)
After every day of use, I shampoo and deep clean my brushes with soap and hot water until the water coming from the suds runs clear. Then my brushes are laid out to dry overnight. This guarantees brushes are disinfected when they go into my brush container. They are then held in a zipper sealed Züca bag for clean and safe keeping until my next appointment.
Since COVID-19 landed on our lap, I have enhanced my brush kit to include over 90 brushes to avoid reusing the same brush twice in one day. I also have the M.A.C. Cosmetics brush cleanser or Japonesque brush cleanser between uses over a clean cotton towel IF needed. The specially formulated cleansers quickly lift away all types of makeup including powder, cream, gel, or wax-based products for improved hygiene products & quick cleaning needs. I have also added Beauty So Clean which removes bacteria and germs on powder-based makeup products: eye shadows, blushes, pressed powders, bronzers, cream-based products compacts, foundations, and concealers. My makeup items get sprayed after each appointment.
Any metal surfaces I use such as pallets and spatulas are all hand washed with soap and hot water, then disinfected with 70% - 80% alcohol-based disinfectants that I carry with me at all jobs or they are all wiped with Rejuvenate Wipes, which kill HIV, Hepatitis B&C, RSA Influenza, MRSA, fungus, and more… offering hospital-grade disinfection it as little as one minute.
Mascara is applied with a disposable wand that is NEVER double dipped for your safety. If a sponge is needed, a new wedge sponge is used and tossed or available for you to keep after your service.
Almost 50% of my makeup kit items are inert, meaning they don't support the growth of bacteria. Liquid or cream foundations, concealers, gel eyeliners, eye primers, lipsticks, and other cream-based items are scooped out using my spatula and placed on a disinfected palette, so you get a clean application each time. And again the makeup its self gets sprayed after use with Beauty So Clean.
The packaging and content of my kit is disinfected at the end of a job with a 70% - 80% alcohol-based disinfectant and/or a Rejuvenate Wipe. I spray all eye and lip pencils with 70% - 80% alcohol-based disinfectants before use, and at home, at the end of the day of use, I re-spray and sharpen pencils for my next guest so they are double disinfected with or Beauty So Clean.
I will wash my hands before, during, and after our time working together. Makeup can be messy so I love setting up near a sink.
While in quarantine, I spent my time at home digging deep about how to proceed when it came to running my business. The majority of my productive time was spent on business and self-development webinars. Some specialized in how to pivot business practices as a result of COVID-19. Others were about sanitation practices that are being created in the spa industry by vendors all over the country.
While at home, I realized how much I missed talking about products I believe in. So I started my online store. I believe self-care products should be accessible and in the hands of every person particularly now that we should be washing our hands so often.
