Beauty Tip Of The Day: Make-Up Shelf Life.

You know when you set aside that pile a make-up thinking
"one day, I'll use this."

Yet, 3 years later it's still sitting at the bottom of you're make-up drawer? Yeah, I know. We've all been there. As much as we'd like to believe that the eyeshadow we bought back in high school is still good--you know it isn't.

All make-up has a shelf life.

Here's a quick guideline to help us know when to toss things out:
  • Mascara: 3 months.
  • Oil-Free Foundation: One Year
  • Cream Foundation: One Year
  • Concealer: 12-18 Months
  • Powder: 18 Months
  • Blush & Bronzer: 18 Months
  • Cream Blush: 12-18 Months
  • Eye shadow: 18 Months
  • Eyeliner: 18 Months
  • Liquid Eyeliner: Six Months
  • Lipstick/Lip Gloss: 18 Months
  • Lipliner: One Year
  • Nail Polish: One Year
  • Cosmetic makeup sponges: Wash after each use and throw away after one month.

Do you like to hold on to your make-up?
