Vi kan godt blive enige om, at det er en smule irriterende at rense makeupbørster, ik’? Det tager tid, det er noget griseri, og så skal børsterne tørre, før de kan bruges igen. Men det er altså stadig SUPERVIGTIGT, at du får renset dem ofte. Det er den australske model Anthea Page et rigtig godt eksempel på.

Anthea har lagt et billede på Instagram, hvor hun viser, hvad der er sket med hendes øje, efter hun har fået lagt makeup med en beskidt makeupbørste i forbindelse med et modeshow. Hun har fået en stafylokok-infektion i øjet, som hun skal tage medicin for at få væk, og det ser virkelig ubehageligt ud.

Makeupartister burde vaske børsterne efter hver model, men selv om det kun er dig selv, der bruger dine makeupbørster, så skal de altså også vaskes tit. Faktisk burde du rense dem hver måned og helst hver anden uge, for der kan sidde mange klamme bakterier på, der kan give dig infektioner eller gøre dig syg.

A letter to makeup artists and those getting their makeup done... I'm not going to sit here pretending I don't like modelling or isn't awesome because it really is and I do almost always have fun on jobs. Models have it good most of the time, especially in Australia however there are health/hygiene risks involved for models and anyone using testers or getting their makeup done people can overlook. I have just been on a fashion show job for the past 4 days and 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. I do feel my safety concerns were dismissed as if it was part of my job to put up with these unhealthy conditions. My message is not intended to critique the women who I trusted with my eye and skin health but to raise awareness of importance of hygiene practises amongst artists. If you are getting your makeup done or using any testers, check everything has been cleaned to your standard even if someone scoffs at your concerns. 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. Ps - It been diagnosed as a staff infection by the doctor and I'm now on medication #unretouched #nofilter #fuckingsick
