Beauties, like food, your makeup has a shelf life. There is a time between when you open your makeup, use it, and when it needs to be tossed. That brown eyeliner that you use a few times each year, but have had for three years? It needs to go.

Check out the list below for a general idea of when your items need to go.

CREAM BLUSH – every six months.

CONCEALERS – every six months.

EYE SHADOW – every twelve months.

HIGHLIGHTERS – every six months.

LIPSTICK/LIP GLOSS – every twelve months.

LIQUID FOUNDATIONS – every six months.

POWDERED FOUNDATION – every twelve months.

TINTED MOISTURIZERS – every six months.

With your makeup brushes, you should wash these weekly. Invest in a makeup brush cleaner and say bye to pesky acne.
