Time to clear out that make up bag!

Is it time to clear out your make up bag? Check out the below guidelines for how long you should keep your make up products – some of them are rather surprising (5 years!). Hey, any excuse to buy new make up!

  • Mascara – 3-6 months
  • Foundation (pump formula) – 1-2 years
  • Concealer – 1-2 years
  • Eye liner – 5 years
  • Eye shadow – 2 years
  • Lipstick – 2 years
  • Lipgloss – 2 years

Note: if any of your products change colour or start to smell that is a warning sign to toss them!

And don’t forget about your brushes! Wash them at least once a week in warm soapy water (or with make up brush cleanser) to prevent product build up and spreading of bacteria.
