Temptalia Asks You

Do you sanitize your beauty products? Do you have a schedule? Never?

Temptalia's Answer.

I sanitize lipsticks every 6 months or so, powder products every 6-9 months (generally when I do a major re-organization). I’m pretty clean about skincare and the like. I use recycleable disposable lipgloss wands for gloss so no double-dipping.

I sanitize lipsticks by dipping them in rubbing alcohol, gently blotting, then letting it dry (about five minutes). I sanitize powders by spraying them with rubbing alcohol, waiting 30 seconds or so, then wiping down with a paper towel. I get my recycleable, disposable lipgloss wands here; they also have lip brushes here.

What kind of lighting do you do your makeup in? Natural? Office? Special bulbs?

Temptalia's Answer.

I actually have no idea. They’re just whatever lights my apartment bathroom has! Probably some form of fluorescent.

If you never bought any more make up again, how long would it take you to use up what you have? What would you run out of first? What would you never have to repurchase?

Temptalia's Answer.

Forever. I’d probably run out of skincare/foundation kind of stuff first, but I’d never run out of eyeshadow or lipstick.

Thanks to Anita for today’s question!
