A: Absolutely! Part of what I do involves certain little mixology tricks and products to ensure exactly that.

Q: Can you tell me a little about your sanitation practices?
A: Of course!
- I wear a mask. I am fully vaccinated and boosted.
- All brushes & tools have been cleaned and disinfected prior to your appointment. I use a professional grade disinfectant brush cleaner which contains citrus-based spirits (my brushes smell like oranges!), and I hand-wash them with a specially formulated brush soap containing the natural anti-bacterial ingredients of honey and tea tree oil.
- Dry powders are scraped/wiped down and sprayed with alcohol between appointments.
- Creamy/wet products (foundation, concealer, cream/gel liner, lipstick/gloss, etc.) are dispensed from their containers on a clean palette. Disposable applicators are used for mascara and other products and are never "double dipped".
