[Tips] Dont Do This! part 1

Hi guys.
Since I've been busy with my college, I can't post a review or my haul.
This post is gonna be a real quick post because there are so many assignments awaits me T.T

So, now I wanna share about:

10 things you should never ever do! 

But on this post, I will share 2 of them.

1. Never wash your make up brushes
Your make up brushes are the place where germs and bacterias gathered. So, you have to clean your make up brushes at least once a week. Otherwise germs, bacterias, and oil/sebum will gathered in your make up brushes. This will cause allergic or infection as well as acne to your skin.
So, clean up your brushes are as important as clean up your face.
Baby shampoo, warm water, and facial wash will help clean your brushes.

2. Borrowing others lipstick or eye make up
Borrowing other people's lipstick or eye make up sometimes may be a better solution if you didn't have a color you need or if you were in urgent situation and you didn't bring your lipstick/ eye make up.
But... it is not a good idea.
Maybe you haven't know it yet, but lips, mouth and throat are home for all germs. And you can never guess whether other people is germs- free or not. So, beware of flu virus, fever virus, or germs that may contain on other people's lipstick.
You might think that there's nothing wrong with eye make up such as eyeshadow, eyeliner, etc. But.. Once again, you are wrong.
There's a bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus that may live in your eye make up. Those bacterias can cause infection to your skin. Even you can get conjunctivitis (some kind of sore-throat but it happened to your eyes. eye-sore maybe?).
You can read more about this bacteria on scientist experiments on eyeshadow here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14528392 and here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC244005/

I will continue the rest on my next post :D

P.S. it's just a suggestion based from things that I knew/ I got informed. I'm not expert on medical or something like that. And I'm not saying that you MUST do anything that I said above. I'm here just to give you some tips about it.
