Is it okay to use makeup when you are sick? I have a sore throat/ dry cough and I am not sure if I will contaminate my makeup. I heard that having a viral and bacterial sickness will have different consequences. Thanks!
I have worn make up while sick, but I am careful about it. I usually skip lipsticks and glosses, or I use a very clean hand and dip from gloss a pot making sure never to double dip. Better yet, I grab a Burt's Bees Lip Balm and be done with it.
I avoid eye makeup. I might use a little concealer and some blush but make sure not to contaminate it, so I use disposable applicators if I am sick. I don't use lip gloss, usually just some vaseline on my lips.
I never thought about this either - the only time I wouldn't wear makeup when I'm sick is if I have a bad cold and keep blowing my nose - if that's the case I figure I will have wiped the makeup off before long and there isn't much point!
