It’s that time of the year where I like to declutter and discard any old makeup products and I cannot stress enough how important it is to let go of your favourite mascara you’ve had for over a year!
I was a little lazier this year and missed my annual Spring Clean, but this summer I’m determined to let go of some old makeup (NOT to buy more products, but that may or may not happen! haha)
This table below is a great guide for deciding whether to toss that product! (Its from the PopSugar website)
|PRODUCT||WHEN TO TOSS|
|Powders (including blushes, bronzers, and shadows)||Two years|
|Cream shadows and blushes||12-18 months|
|Oil-free foundation||One year|
|Cream compact foundation||18 months|
|Lipstick and lip liner||One year|
|Lip gloss||18-24 months|
|Pencil eyeliner||Two years|
|Liquid or gel eyeliner||Three months|
If you’re anything like me, you may have a hard time letting go of your makeup products, but what I like to do – is have a toss pile of expired makeup and then make a little basket of products that you’ve purchased and tried, but maybe find that the colour or skin finish doesn’t work for you AND ask your friends to take a little look, chances are they might love it and use it.
There’s nothing lovelier than sharing the makeup love around, one lipstick at a time… (Wow, that should be an advertising slogan or something!) Anyway I’m rambling….
Happy makeup cleaning!
