When to Throw Out your Make-up

There are so many laws on the expiry of products these days. I don’t follow them as a rule but I do use them as a guideline. Here are the guidelines on the shelf life of your make-up:

Mascara:  4 Months

Eye shadow: 3 years +

Powder: 2 Years

Liquid Eyeliner: 6 months

Pencil Liner: Once Sharpened regularly up to 3 years

Lipstick: 2 Years

Powder Blusher: 2 years +

Lip Pencils: 2 years

Make-up Sponges: Wash regularly, sin after a month

Foundation (water based): 1 year

Foundation (oil based): 18 moths

The golden rule: If it starts to smell, change colour or consistency bin it!
