Makeover your makeup bag!
While it’s tempting to use your foundation to the last drop, that’s not always the best idea. Beauty products expire, and it’s important to get rid of old make-up because it can be bad for your skin. We scoped out Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual, by famous make-up pro Bobbi Brown, to see when it’s time to say sayonara to your cosmetics:
Foundation, concealer, and powder: 2 years
Mascara: 6 months
Lipstick: 12 to 18 months
Eyeshadow: 2 years
Powder or cream blush: 2 years
Moisturizer and sunscreen: 2 years
To make cleaning out your stash easier in the future, write the date on the bottom of your products when ya first open them.
It’s also crucial to store your brushes properly – you can use a brush roll like the pros, but pencil cups work perf too.
Cute and clutter-free
Now that you’ve cleaned up your supplies, store them in an adorable organizer. We heart the always-classic Caboodles – check out this one in edgy black lace:
