Are they starting to become dangerous?

On the latest season of Americas next top Model I saw something disturbing. Models having to put in non prescription contacts in their eyes. First is the hygiene factor. None of the models washed their hands before putting these things in. That is just a big no no. Second why are they doing it themselves when some don't even know how to do it. Honestly, they could really ruin their eyes if they don't know how to do it properly. Some of them had their eyes burning and no one was offered eye drops or anything. America's next top model. I think they are not doing what they need to do. Also on a side note, I seen make up artists blowing on models faces. Does anyone not really how many germs they just spewed over the model? Go get a tissue, brush or something, not stick your icky breath all over someone.

Most places have no requirements or little training for makeup artists. In hair school when you're taught makeup the hygiene factor is pushed, but if you're never taught that, you never know. As for the contacts, I haven't seen ANTM this cycle, but if it was a job they are treated like any other model. Changing hair/makeup/eye color is expected to be something they already know.

The whole fashion/entertainment industry has skewed values, so why not this too?

Its just gross. The makeup artists they use are supposed to be top notch. Yes they do great work, but they dont even know the basic hygiene values.

That is really gross. They should have washed there hands and had it explained to them how to put it and take out contacts. I am so squeemish about my eyes I dont think I could ever use contacts. That is horrible that they werent even given eye drops. That is pretty gross as well that the makeup artists were blowing in their faces. Sounds like the show needs some improvements.

Since it's a reality show, it's impossible to say how hygenic this one instance was. And besides, contact-wearing happens all the time in the real modeling world. :o
