Which eyelashes are right for you? With all the latest options, style editor helps you pick the best pair
Putting on fake eyelashes might be foreign territory for you, but don’t lash out too quickly -- we’ve got you covered on the best tips and trades to applying a fake eyelash for any fun night out on the town. There are different ways to extend your eyelashes to maximum volume, but StyleWise style editor Jon Jordan suggests going with the good old fashioned fake eyelash. Some people don’t like the glue that goes on the eyelid, so they might opt out for a lash extension put on by a professional, but if you’re cool with applying the glue yourself, fake eyelashes can be fun and effective at upgrading your look. A classic fake eyelash will surely get the job done, but there has been some innovation in the fake eyelash world, and there are a lot of great products out there that let you have more control over how much of the fake eyelash goes on your face.

Cleaning, sanitizing your makeup brushes has never been so important
If you’ve never thought about sanitizing your makeup brushes, now may be the time to do it. Hopefully you’re not sharing any makeup brushes while you’re quarantined, but even if you’re not -- making sure you have a clean makeup brush can help stop the spread of any kind of germs that may be residing on your face. Cleaning the brushes with soap and water is a step in the right direction, but Jordan suggests making sure you soak the brushes in isopropyl alcohol so they are fully sanitized. And if you’re worried about the brushes drying out, just soak them in some water and hair conditioner after the alcohol. Even when it comes to the packaging of makeup products, Jordan suggests finding ones that are in bottles or have pumps; that way, you don’t cross-contaminate while touching the product.
