This Model Got An Eye Infection From Using Dirty Makeup Brushes--What Happened

November 10, 2016 by Sara Alderman

Everyone needs to clean their makeup brushes once a week. I know, that seems way too time consuming. But think about how often the brush, or whatever tool you use, touches your face! Do you really want to risk any health issue just from applying makeup?

That’s exactly what happened to Australian model Anthea Page. She wrote on Instagram that she got a staph infection in her eye from a makeup artist who used dirty brushes.

Honestly, this post was a wake-up call for me to start cleaning my brushes more often. And if you’re getting your makeup done, ask to watch the makeup artist clean her brushes before she uses them on you. It’s the only way you’ll know for sure that they are fresh and clean!

Here’s how to clean a range of beauty tools, from brushes to sponges and more. And if you don’t like getting in there and scrubbing those brush bristles, this tool makes it real easy and quick for ya!
