Make Up Expiry

It is time for me to throw away some of my make up!…. I do this regularly with out fail.
You see different types of makeup can safely be used for different lengths of time….Here’s the list that I go by for my make up and beauty products. It shows you how long they can be used after being opened:
  • Concealer Up to 12 months.
  • Powder 2 years.
  • Pencil eye liner Pencils should be sharpened regularly and could last up to 2 years. Liquids however only last unto 3 months.
  • Eyeshadow Powders will also last up to 2 years. But creams last unto 6 months.
  • Brushes Wash every 2-3 weeks with a mild detergent.
  • Sponges Wash weekly and discard monthly.
  • Foundation: Depends on the ingredients: A water-based foundation will last from 6 to 12 months. An oil-based one will last up to 18 months. And a powder one can last up to 2 years …However I must say that i throw mine after 3 to 4 months max!
  • Lip liner Up to 3 years.
  • Lipstick  1-2 years depending on the ingredients.
  • Mascara This product expires the fastest: Throw out after 3 months.
  • Nail Polish Up to 1-2 years, depending on the quality.
  • Hair care products 1 year
  • Sunscreen 6 months
  • Cream & gel cleansers 1 year.
  • Skin care products 6 months to 1 year
  • Fragrance 2 years

You can either write down on a peace of paper which products expire when or you could do what I do! I stick a small round sticker under each product and just write the expiry date on it !!!
