11 Ways to Keep Your Makeup Germ-Free
Your makeup bag could be a breeding ground for bacteria. Use these tips and extend the shelf life of your cosmetics.

Instead of putting your fingers in your foundation bottle or applying lipstick directly to your lips, scoop or pour out your daily cosmetics onto a stainless steel palette (available at beauty supply stores).
