Tapping off Vs Blowing off powders from a brush

Hi Everyone! =)

So today I will discussing about tapping off makeup powders from a brush versus blowing off makeup powders from a brush! I've been seeing some tutorials that show gurus blowing powder off their brushes and I don't think it's a good idea.

I personally believe that you should tap makeup off a brush and not blow the makeup powder off. This applies to any kind of powder makeup, it can be eyeshadow, it can be powder foundation or finishing powder.

1) Blowing makeup off brushes blows powder into the air, which you could breath in, get on stuff, and get on your face
2) Blowing make up off brushes will put moisture from your breath onto the brush and powder on the brush, which may interfere with powder application and cause it to be uneven.
3) Probably, most importantly: Blowing makeup off brushes is unhygienic because there is bacteria in your mouth that goes onto the brush, and when you apply onto your skin, you're putting bacteria on your skin, which is bad! Especially bad for your eyes and skin around your eyes because those areas are very sensitive and can get infected easily. Also, you get bacteria on your brush, and if you dip it into your makeup again, now you have bacteria in your makeup. Lots of problems okay! =P
4) Tapping off powder from a brush can be tapped off in the sink and easily washed away, or you can tap it in its cap as shown in this picture:

So, I really don't see why not you should tap your makeup powder off your brushes.
And if you say you blow makeup off because it's a habit, then it's a bad habit and I suggest you get rid of it. You really don't want to get some kind of eye infection or start coughing because powder was blown into the air.

So, very quick post, may seem like common sense, but the fact that I see people blow makeup powder off their brushes may not seem quite as so.
