For working makeup artists, good hygiene is essential. Moving from one client to another, necessitates scrupulous hygiene practices and often it is more hygienic to use disposable tools, throwing something away after using, and using a fresh applicator for your next model.
Here at Cocktail Cosmetics we are proud to offer a great range of products designed exactly for this purpose and here’s a quick run-down of some of our favourite tools that offer the ultimate in efficiency and hygiene.
Shadow Shields Eye Shadow Protectors (£7.50) are a great product for protecting under the eye from eye shadow fall out, self-adhesive, each box contains 30 Shields.
50 Short Head Mascara Wands (£5.95), the classic mascara wand, in disposable form.

Pack of 50 Black Spatulas (£5.95), these spatulas are essential for transferring products hygienically to from one container to another.
Other hygienic essentials we would recommend are the Pro Hygiene Hand Sanitizing Gel as well the Vera Mona Color Switch Duo. The Pro Hygiene Hand Sanitizing Gel (£3.00) kills 99.99% of bacteria within 60 seconds with no need for water or rinsing. The Vera Mona Color Switch Duo (£17.00) isn’t strictly a hygiene product, but when it comes to switching between eyeshadow colours, you won’t find a quicker product for cleaning your brush. With two sponges in a tin, the centre sponge can be dampened and you can then run your brush over the surface for applying products damp. The larger sponge is to be used dry and a quick swipe of your brush over its surface will remove product, ready for a fresh colour. If you don’t need to apply products damp, consider the Vera Mona Color Switch Solo (£14.95).
