Beauty Talk: Makeup Expiration

source: makeup.com

Makeup has an Expiration just like the food we eat. I never know exactly when to throw out milk or bread until I smell a funk. After working in the beauty industry for over a year I have seen people get infections from old mascara and even breakout from old foundation because it has bacteria that multiplied over the years. I know it sucks buying a $10-25 mascara every 3 months but opt into purchasing travel size mascaras (Benefit makes a great one).
Mascara - 3 months
Liquid Liners- 6 months
Foundations- 6-12 months
Lipgloss- 1 year
Concealer- 1 year
Nail Polish 2 years
Lipstick- 2 years
Powders- 2 years
