Having studied in UP Diliman, I spent most of my days around frat and sorority groups, and I've had my fair share of being recruited too. Whatever tempting benefit they offered, I was firm with my decision that no, I will never join these groups. I really couldn't justify the reason why applicants should be beaten to a pulp or worse, beaten to death during initiation. If you call this a family, why would you beat up or kill your brothers and sisters?
For the record, I do not intend to generalize. I know a lot of people who are frat and sorority members (some of them are my closest friends even), and they're doing just fine in their chosen groups-they also told me once that their initiation is not as brutal as some think--BUT there are some egoistic groups out there that don't value life at all, and I can't believe that they're existing and given the permission to operate!
A life wasted on a paddle. A life that could have changed the future for the better. My heart goes out to the recent victim of hazing in DLSU-CSB. I pray that justice will be served to very soon.
Whew! That was pretty heavy. I don't want to end your week with a sad news so I digress-let's go back to our regular programming!
In today's FMF, I shall share with everyone how I sanitize my makeup. Question is from Cathy:
I just want to ask how you clean/sanitize your makeup? Looking forward to your tips!
All the best,
Thanks for this question because you just reminded me that I have to sanitize my makeups asap! I have way too many makeups so I sanitize them per batch (lip products, powders/eyeshadow, brushes) because if I sanitize all at the same time, it will take me two straight days, non-stop!
How do I sanitize my makeup? I'll be sharing them with you after the cut. :)

LIPSTICKS, LIP GLOSS, LIP BALMS
- For most of my makeups, I only use isopropyl alcohol with moisturizers so the texture of my makeup won't become too dry. I transfer alcohol onto an atomizer bottle and spray away on lipsticks and lip gloss applicators, while on lip balm, I use an antibacterial wet wipe-I don't know how lip balm will react to alcohol (especially the natural ones) so I use a wet wipe instead.
PRESSED POWDER, BLUSH, AND EYESHADOW (CREAM AND POWDER)
- For powders and blush, I use an antibacterial wet wipe as well because I don't like how their textures turn out once sprayed with alcohol. For eyeshadows, however, I spray alcohol on them as it will be too tedious if I use the wet wipe technique!
- I always make it a point to wash my brushes every week (my favorite brush soap is Clean Brush Shampoo) because unlike makeups, they don't have preservatives that will inhibit the growth of bacteria. If I don't have much time, I use J and C Super Clean Solutions Makeup Brush.
- FYI, I have a collection of false eyelashes. Even if I don't use them often, I love having a couple so I'm ready whenever I need 'em! For my natural, thin falsies, I dilute alcohol in water to neutralize the former and I spray it directly on the curved part that hits my lids. For thicker falsies, I spray alcohol straight on them.
SPONGE, EYELASH CURLER
- I only use a regular shampoo and body wash to clean my sponges. With eyelash curlers, I use an antibacterial wet wipe too on the body and rubber pad.
Hope you enjoyed this post!
