Hi Ladies! My name is Arleene and I’m the newest contributor on Somewhat Simple! I’m so excited to be posting as the Beauty Expert!You can catch my posts every second Saturday of the month. You can look forward to makeup and hair tutorials, tips and tricks and inspiration. As well as talk about skincare, nails and everything else beauty.I’ve posted how-to’s on beauty and makeup but I’ve realized that I haven’t posted about product hygiene. This is crucial because makeup can harbor bacteria in makeup brushes/sponges if not used or cared for properly. This can lead to eye infections, breakouts, and spreading germs. Eeek. So I’m going to go over some basics with you about your makeup’s shelf life (yes, just like food, makeup should be tossed when it’s reached its expiration) and how to clean and disinfect tools as well. Along the way I’ll answer some questions you might have already been asking yourself about your makeup. Ready to learn? Here we go!
