Hi geeks, I was wondering if you have any advice for me here....

I was doing a make up on Saturday, the client had acne so I never noticed the coldsore until it was too late (it didn't look like a cold sore, it looked like a continuation of the acne & was a fair bit away from her lip - still it was stupid of me, I know) - I had already went over it with 2 good & expensive Becca foundation brushes.

Is there anyway of saving them or will I just have to chuck them out?

The herpes (cold sore) virus cannot live outside the body for very long at all, I would make sure you deep clean your brushes but not chuck them.

You get a spray that kills bacteria in brushes, I can't remember the name
Of it but I get mine from artdeco, it kills any bacteria on the brush, i use it between clients if I have a busy day then wash with baby shampoo at the end of the day and spray again. Make sure you also clean your Brush carrier xxx

I suffer with cold sores regularly and I just thoroughly clean everything and anything the brushes could've touched and you'll be fine x x
