Once and For All, Are Makeup Counter Makeovers Bad For Your Skin?

So, we all love a good makeup counter, right? Those amazing new products, that beautiful salesperson standing next to them tempting you to have your makeup done like hers… ugh! It’s an inner struggle deciding whether or not to take advantage of the opportunity to get your face beat to the makeup gawds. Unfortunately, though, you would be doing yourself a favor if you didn’t go for that makeover.

According to ABC News, you could potentially be putting your skin, and yourself, at risk for infection if you were to get your makeup done at one of those counters. Because so many people have gotten their makeup done before you, tester makeup is a breeding ground for dangerous strains of bacteria that can cause rashes, acne, and even gross infections. Yuck!

No need to freak out, though! Just take extra precautions when sitting in the makeup chair. Make sure you ask the person doing your makeup to use disposable applicators to prevent any unnecessary breakouts that may occur.
