Makeup Check

Hey Lovelies,

It’s almost officially fall and time to review your makeup collection.  Did you know that makeup is not good forever? I know it sucks but better to chuck some old mascara than have an eye infection right?

I have compiled a list of your common products and how long you should hold em and when to fold em.

Mascara & liquid eyeliner:  Replace every 3 to 4 months because bacteria gets into the tube every time you take it out and put it back in (nasty).

Pencil Eyeliner – No more than two years and always sharpen it before you use it again and dip in rubbing alcohol after each use.

Liquid foundation Cream shadows and blushes:  Always apply with a brush or sponge and don’t put your fingers in the bottle it should be good for 12-18 months

Lip gloss & lipstick:  It’s safe to hold on to them for at least 6 months to a year.

Powders: Two years unless the color has changed or there’s a funny smell (including blushes, bronzers, and eyeshadows)

Concealers are usually good for 12-18 months

Well that’s all for today my lovelies. Hit me up at or on my website or on Twitter @KaraAllan.
