then that bacteria is living on your lipstick itself. >> how lovely. >> that's disgusting. all you do is take a disinfecting wipe that's usually used for cosmetics. don't anything with chemicals again because you put it on your mouth. just wipe it. ideally you should do that once or twice when you re-apply. >> how do you make sure it doesn't get all smushed or whatever? >> you just use a wipe, gently press gent against it. if it has alcohol it will kill the bacteria and still keep the shape of your lipstick. >> let's do brushes and blenders. this sponge works well when you apply your makeup, but it is a sponge so it absorbs all the foundation in the makeup you put in it. mix liquid soap with warm water in a bowl. >> dish washing soap? >> hand soap is fine. anything that will start to
