Get Rid of That Nasty Makeup!

Hey everyone, it's a new year and I know many of you are making resolutions to lose weight, stop bad habits, start new ideas...etc. While that's all great, let's not forget to clean out your beauty bag! Out with the old bacteria-filled expired makeup, and in with something new! Recycle those old product containers and you may get free product from cosmetic companies like MAC!

Check out the list below of cosmetic expiration dates:


Liquid/Cream Foundation, 6 month - 1 year  Smell your foundation and make sure it doesnt smell like chemicals. Also check to see if color or texture has changed. If any of these have occurred, discard immediately.

Concealer, 6 months - 1 year
Powders, 1-2 years

Mascara, 3 months

Lip gloss & Lipstick, 1 year

Eye/Lip Pencils, 1-2 years, make sure you sharpen them often to prevent bacteria from transfering to your eyes. If the product is dried out then discard.


Facial Cleansers & Moisturizers, 6 months

Facial Toners, 1 year

Natural Cosmetics, 6 months (products containing all natural or plant products)

Brushes And Tools
Cleaing your brushes and sponges are essential because of oil and bacteria that gets trapped in those tools. Wash brushes at minimum once a month. Wash reusable sponges once a week and discard them after a month.
