It’s Contaminated
Imagine how many people have dipped their fingers in that very same container of eye shadow as you— and although the sales associate might claim that they have cleaned it with some sort of rubbing alcohol, it can still be equally as contaminated as before. Rather than trying on the eye shadow or eyeliner directly at the store, simply rub it on your hands in order to see what the color looks like against your complexion— this is a great way to test out the color without having to get it near your eye. Or, worse comes to worse, you can wait until you get home to try it on. If for some reason you don’t like the way that the eyeliner or eye shadow looks on you when you get home, then ask the store what their return policy is.

The great thing about shopping for makeup every season is that you not only get to get the newest and latest styles, but you also get to replenish that makeup of yours that has gone bad. For instance, did you know that you should be replacing your mascara every 3-4 months? Bacteria harbors itself on things like mascara wands, eyeliner pencils, and even eye shadows. By replacing these things on a frequent basis, however, you can help to reduce the likelihood that you will get any sort of staph infection, pink eye, or even a sty.
