Makeup Bag Makeover!

Ever wonder how long you should keep some of your essential beauty products before tossing them? Well if it’s been a while since you cleaned your makeup bag, you might want to consider the following…

Eyeshadows are the perfect beauty essential item to make eyes pop however they do have an expiry date of 18 months so make sure you toss it a year and a half later in order to avoid eye infections. Tip: Write the expiry date at the back of your eyeshadow to keep track of when to toss it.

Lipsticks can make any pout stand out however they should be tossed after 2 years in order to avoid the goopy lip look. Tip: Refrigerate the lipstick tube to keep it fresh longer.

Makeup Brushes are essential tools to have for easy makeup application and thankfully they have a lifetime shelf life if taken care of properly. Tip: Wash brushes every week in order to avoid bacteria buildup and invest in a great quality set.

Liquid foundations are great to create an even, uniform colour to the complexion however it should be tossed after one year‘s use. Tip: If it looks streaky and uneven then it’s time for it to go.

I hope you find these tips helpful. Feel free to share your beauty tips, I’d love to hear them.
