Is it ok to use a friend’s makeup brush?

Asked by A

Is it ever OK to use my friend’s makeup brush or puff? Will I get germs or bacteria when I use makeup brush or puff after my friends finish using it?

Thank you!

    Your friend’s makeup brush or puff is no more or less apt to be contaminated with germs than is yours. The makeup itself has preservatives that help to prevent the growth of bacteria but the makeup brushes and the puffs do not so they can be contaminated by bacteria at any time, and that’s why, whether it’s your friend’s or yours, they should be replaced periodically.
