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
