Makeup artist Mally Roncal is absolutely fanatical about germ prevention. After her twin daughters were born last December, staying bacteria-free went from a routine to an obsession; Roncal even added more makeup brushes to her eponymous brand in a bid to keep women from using their fingers. “The worst thing ever is when I’m sitting in a public place,” says Roncal, “and I see a woman open a compact and, with her germy, dirty fingers, touch up her lips and cheeks.” With that thought in mind, we asked Roncal to share her top five tips for clean cosmetics.
1. Wash your hands with antibacterial wash. For my clients I use an antibac that smells like lavender called Jao Hand Refresher. I put it on my hands and rub them together, then let it dry and put it over their faces. Not only do you kill germs, but you can enjoy a moment of peace.
