Follow this list and have fun...
- First make separate piles for each cosmetic:eye shadows, lipsticks. blushes, brushes, etc.
- Get a trashcan to have near by so you can toss stuff right away.
- Make a keeper pile
- If you just bought new make-up place in keeper pile
Here is the rule of thumb for shelf life for cosmetics. After that you should toss the makeup out and buy new makeup.
Lipsticks:5-6months if kept sanitized
Blushes, powder foundations, loose finishing powder: 1 year
Liquid foundations: 4-5 months, keep in cool place, change seasonally to be for sure your keeping up with shelf life. You can also tell if it's extremely old if the oil and water in the product separates.
Eyeshadow:5-6 months because it comes in contact with your eyes
Eyeliners & brow liners: 6months or more because you can sharpen them
Keep cosmetics closed and keep in cool dry places.
That's all Mamas.
