Top 5 bad beauty habits - Expired Make-up #4

This is something I'm sure no one thinks about. Make-up going off? Going mouldy. Starting to sweat? Yeah, some make-up just seems to last you forever? That one back up mascara that you've had in your drawer for ages, years, but it's actually teeming with bacteria that can destroy your vision! Scared yet?
Always check your make-up for expiration. If your saving and saving it and just don't want to waste it because it was just too expensive, maybe you should try out some cheaper brands? Find a nice fit for you that you know you could easily throw away if you didn't use in time. Or just use up your usual make-up and just grit your teeth and bin it if you should.

The cheat sheet bin list.
Mascara/ Eye liner: 3 months
Foundation: 1 year

Lipstick: 1 year

Cream Shadow: 12-18 months
Powders and shadows: 2 years
Make-up sponges: Replace weekly.

Until Next Time xo
