Tamara considers sanitation to be of utmost importance. Applying makeup is a very physically personal process, with unavoidable contact between client/makeup artist, and client/makeup and makeup tools.
Tamara asks that any client who is experiencing symptoms of illness to please reschedule his/her appointment. Tamara takes special precautions by washing and disinfecting her hands before every appointment, and sanitizing her hands between clients. Between appointments, all makeup brushes, tools, and makeup itself is thoroughly disinfected and sanitized with anti-microbial/anti-bacterial cleaning solution/soap. Between clients, all makeup brushes, tools, and makeup itself is carefully disinfected with disinfecting brush cleaner or 99% isopropyl alcohol. All working surfaces are wiped down and disinfected, and a clean barrier cloth is then used between the surface(s) and makeup/tools.
During makeup application, Tamara uses a clean metal spatula to remove cream products from their containers. She then mixes them on a disinfected metal palette. She does not use the back of her hand as a palette. All liquid lip products are squeezed onto a disinfected metal palette, or removed from their containers with a clean spatula. Tamara does not dip brushes, sponges or applicators into cream or liquid products, as this process causes contamination. Mascara is applied only with disposable wands, and a used wand is never placed back into a mascara tube. Brushes are shaken to remove excess powders prior to application. Lash glue is air-dried. Tamara never blows on products or tools.
Please contact Tamara with any questions/concerns about sanitation.
