If you don’t clean your makeup brushes and sponges often, you’re likely putting your skin in contact with potentially deadly bacteria and fungus, according to a recent study.

Researchers looked at lip glosses, eyeliners, beauty sponges, and other cosmetics and found 70% to 90% of these products had been contaminated with bacteria, including E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus, as well as fungus.

They also found that beauty sponges, which are often used to apply foundation or concealer, were the most fungus-laden products, with 96% of the 79 sponges they studied containing fungus.
