Hey everyone, if you're anything like me, then you're a bit of a makeup hoarder. I just collect my makeup and never seem to bin them, but the other day I did have a clear out of all the old products. It's important to do this because otherwise the products won't work to the best of their abilities and the product will collect bacteria. So here is a rough guide on when to bin old makeup products, and signs that your makeup is too old to use!
Mascara - 2-3 months - clumpy, smells weird, spreads bacteria
Liquid foundation and concealer - 6-12 months - separate layers or lightened - keep out of sunlight as uv rays destroy preservation
Lip stick - 2 years - dry
Lip gloss - 1 year - extra sticky
Nail polish - 1-2 years - gloopy or won't mix when shaken
Powder, eyeshadow, blush - 2 years - more dry and flaky
Fragrances - 8-10 years - smell different and lighter colour - keep in cool dry places
Lotion - change in scent or colour
