Stainless Steel Palette and Cosmetic Spatula

1) Cosmetic Spatulas and Stainless Steel Palettes – Do not underestimate the usefulness of these tools. One of the primary concerns when working with clients is to maintain a high level of hygiene. You want to make sure you’re not dipping your brush into a product after you’ve already applied it on your client’s face. This is especially true for emollient, liquid, or cream based products that can easily accumulate bacteria. Dip the spatula into the product and extract only what you think you’ll need for the job at hand. Scrape a small amount of product and place it on a sterile palette and avoid any double dipping.
