The subject of dirty makeup brushes—and the damage they can do—is a perennial topic here at My Brush Betty.
Normally, that includes the everyday perils of dirty makeup brushes, such as breakouts and muddy makeup application, but our coverage has also included a young mother paralyzed and countless infections, which require medication to treat.
Today, we bring you the story of Australian model Anthea_page, who wrote on Instagram about her eye infection, for which she is now taking medication, caused by a dirty makeup brushes.
She wrote, “Unfortunately even though I had observed unhygienic practises and confronted the qualified artists (who I will not name) I still ended up taking home a nasty eye infection from fashion weekend. …
“This is not my first time receiving an ailment from a dirty makeup brush and unfortunately in my line of work I doubt it will be the last but please be aware of this if you ever come close to a makeup kit so you can keep yourself safe and healthy.”
We’re glad that Anthea’s story is getting such broad coverage, as seen in the links below because My Brush Betty feels strongly that the beauty industry has failed (F-) to bring a quick and easy method of brush-cleaning to market.
We find all the methods difficult, time-consuming and deficient in the final cleanliness result.At My Brush Betty, we continue to work to bring the My Brush Betty makeup brush cleaning kit to market that allows multiple brushes to be cleaned in minutes—and truly cleans them thoroughly.
How much do women hate cleaning brushes? We started a thread on it … Feel free to add your comments.
