UV Light sterilization for sanitary makeup application

Fine Makeup Art & Associates come equipped with a portable

medical-grade UV-C sterilizer to every job location.

What is “UV-C Light Sterilization”? UV-C light is a short-wavelength, ultraviolet light that breaks apart virus DNA and RNA, leaving it unable to function or reproduce. In other words, UV-C light is germicidal and can even neutralize “superbugs” that have developed a resistance to antibiotics. UV sterilization can kill over 99.99% of viruses in an extremely short amount of time

Where is UV Sterilization used? Hospitals and healthcare facilities all over the country use UV-C light because it has been found to be extremely effective in stopping the spread of illness-causing viruses and bacteria.

Makeup Brush Cleaner  is used between every client, on every brush, every day. This is a medical-grade antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial sanitizer that dries and evaporates quickly, and leaves no residue in contact with the skin. Kills 99.99% of viruses and bacteria. This product has been used by Fine Makeup Art & Associates for 20 years. We get many compliments on our brushes smelling fresh and clean!

Sanitary Makeup Application

Stainless Steel Palette & Spatula  is used to dispense makeup products from their original container, onto a stainless steel palette to prevent cross-contamination. Each individual client’s makeup is used directly from the palette for one-time use, making it safe and sanitary. Palette is sanitized with Isopropyl Alcohol  in between clients.

PPE- Hospital grade N95 Mask  is used by the makeup artist while working on clients. Luckily, we got cute ones!  Don’t let the cuteness fool you! These are some of the best masks in the World, and teamed up with a fashion designer to make them as attractive as possible.  We also come equipped with gloves and eye shields. All our PPE is certified medical-grade.

Sanitation Certificate

Venues may have new room occupancy guidelines. Please discuss makeup area/room arrangements with your event planner, hotel liaison, producer, or photographer, etc. prior to your event or photo/video shoot date.   

Each Hotel/venue or photo studio may have their own set of guidelines. These may include arrangements such as spacing of guests, number of guests in the makeup room at one time, staggering appointments so the room does not get too crowded, or doing makeup and hair in a separate room, and servicing a couple of people, or one at a time.

We ask that you be mindful or current guidelines, and not have too many people in the makeup area/room at one time and only the person sitting in the makeup chair should be in the makeup artists immediate workspace.
