Look, 2020 was probably the year to talk hygiene, but this is just a quick little post about the difference between hiring a Professionally Trained MUA, and an amateur MUA. The one thing YOUtube videos don’t teach you about makeup is hygiene. I worked with a very talented artist once, but I took one look at her brushes and felt a little cah cah. They looked like that hadn’t actually been cleaned since she brought them, those brushes could have potentially touched a hundred faces without being cleaned or sterilised once. I dunno about you, but I’m good for pink eye thanks.
Clean brushes is one aspect, there are many more aspects that you are taught when you are professionally trained – decanting products, disposable tools, etc #aintnodoubledippin. So don’t be afraid to ask questions about hygiene when booking your MUA.
