Expiry Dates on Make Up

Make up should be thrown away after a period of time - just like food, it has an expiry date which, if ignored, could mean there is risk of infection, rashes and so on.  Here's a list of how long items should be kept once opened:
  • Mascara - this is first as it expires the fastest and it's the eye area where you really don't want nasty germs and bacteria...  Throw out after 4 months. 
  • Concealer - 12 months. 
  • Nail Polish - 12 months.
  • Foundation - water-based foundation 12 months, oil-based 18 months. 
  • Lipstick - 1 - 4 years
  • Powder - 2 years.
  • Blusher - 2 years.
  • Pencil eye liner - 3 years.
  • Eyeshadow - 3 years. 
  • Lip liner - 3 years. 

Of course, get rid of it if it's looking manky or smells!
