At the moment, not much is known about the virus that causes COVID-19 but if makeup is used on different people, the following measures are recommended:
Spray the makeup surface after each individual use (not too much) with ethanol or isopropanol, both 70% or more. The liquid can be put into a bottle with a spray bottle. Both liquids kill the virus immediately and evaporate quickly, so makeup can be quickly reused or take a small amount of makeup from the bottle with a disinfected spatula and place it on a disinfected surface (small paddle, flat plate, on any case, a surface that is easy to disinfect). Before you start painting, make sure you get all the colors you need. After use, clean the spatula and the pan with clean soapy water and disinfect with ethanol or isopropanol, both 70% or more.
Replace brushes after each individual use with clean, sanitized brushes. Clean brushes after using with soap, rinse with clean tap water, wipe dry with a clean (disposable) cloth. Disinfect by immersing it in 70% or more ethanol. Let it air dry horizontally.
