Answer

You can definitely put make-up on the day after you have anti-wrinkle injections or dermal filler treatment. The pharmaceutical companies advise us to tell our patients no make-up for 4hours after injection. However, with dermal fillers, I often advise my patients no make-up until the day after treatment. This is due to minimise any risk of infection, as dermal fillers stay in the skin for a long period of time, and are more subsequent to infection than anti-wrinkle injections, and can be very resistant to treat with antibiotics. 
 
Best to also regularly clean your make-up brushes at least once per week, and make sure your hands are clean, if you use them to apply make-up, as they are the perfect carrier for bacteria. Often, I ask my patients when the last time they cleaned their brushes and they can’t give me an answer.
