Never keep your makeup too long !!

You should never keep makeup too long, after awhile it starts to build up bacteria.

Here is some guidelines to how long you should have a product before replacing them!

Lipstick: Some experts say 1-2 years. Some say 4 years !
(If it smells, throw it out)

Lip glosses/chopsticks: 2 years

Powder eye shadow: 2 years

Cream eye shadow: 12-18 months

Eyeliner: 3 months

Mascara: 3 months (some last longer, smell it and if it stinks throw it out!)

Powder blush: 2 years

Cream blush: 6 months

Oil-free foundation: 12 months

Cream foundation: 18 months

Concealer: 12-18 Months

Lotions: 2 years

I hope these guidelines help you
