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, and with 99% alcohol. Between clients, all makeup brushes, tools, and makeup itself is carefully disinfected with 99% alcohol or disinfecting brush cleaner.
During a makeup application, Tamara uses a metal spatula to remove cream and/or liquid products from their containers. She then mixes them on a clean metal palette. She does not dip brushes, sponges or applicators into cream or liquid products, as this process may cause contamination. Mascara is applied only with disposable wands, and a used wand is never placed back into a mascara tube. All lip products are squeezed onto a disinfected surface, or removed from their containers with a clean spatula. Please contact Tamara with any questions/concerns about sanitation.
