Makeup Overhaul

Posted on: January 25, 2011

Did you know that your makeup has an expiration date? This cold hard fact can be almost devestating if you meticulously add to your collection with pricey new shades and textures every season.
Over time makeup can harbor bacteria that can cause infections. Keeping your personal care products and tools clean and free of bacteria is an important part of healthy beauty.

Here is a quick reference to determine if your makeup is past it’s prime:

MAKEUP EXPIRATION DATES: (beginning from the time you first open these products)
Powder, Blush, & Eyeshadow: 2 years

Cream Blush & Eyeshadow: 12 – 18 months

Foundation: 1 year

Lipstick & Lipliner: 1 year

Mascara & Eyeliner: 3 months

Makeup Brushes: Clean after each use with a mild detergent

Makeup Sponges: Replace or clean after each use with a mild detergent
