I’m very sure majority of us don’t even know there is an expiring date on most of our makeup products. So today let’s look at when to replace our makeup and avoid skin breakouts or other skin condition.

Welcome back to my blog.
How is everyone doing today? Let me know in the comment section.
Let’s get right to the post.
I have a foundation that I’ve used for a year plus and that is just not acceptable. Yes, we’ve all done this at some point and some still have foundations of 2 years and I’m not kidding because I have one in my makeup box. Foundations are to be disposed or replaced after 6months or a year which is the ideal duration for foundation.
Mascara is to be replaced after 3 to 6months which is the ideal duration for mascara. Do not pour oil or facial spray inside a congealed mascara case. How do I know this? Well, you are reading from someone that has done this before and trust me, I’m not judging.
1 year is ideal for concealer to be replaced. I have a concealer of 3 years and I’m not kidding, the palette looks like something that needs to stay in a Halloween store.
Lipsticks should be replaced between 12-18 months. Do not wait till you start seeing white mushroom on your lipstick before changing it or wiping the mushroom off and continuing using.
POWDER EYESHADOW / BLUSH
This should be replaced after 12-24months. If you are reading this, please go and dispose that 3 years or forever powder eyeshadow and blush that you have. You have used your money, enough is enough sister girl.
This should be replaced every 3 years with good care. Stop using brushes that is looking like a wet mopping stick. I know you have it. I can feel you laughing hard because you’ve been caught. Please change the brushes.
Every 2 years please change your nail polish. Stopping adding nail removal to your congealed expired nail polish.
This should be replaced between 3-5 years. Okay this made me laugh because we literally bath in this. I’m very sure majority exhaust their bottles between 3-6months except you have 500 bottles which I have no idea what you are doing with them. Anyways, go to your beauty table and clear out those perfumed bottles that has stayed from 200 BC into the trash my darling.
This should be replaced between 1-2 years. I strongly suggest a year for face moisturizer. It is written on the bottle. Read instructions my lovely apples.
4-6 months is enough to replace an eyeliner. Stop cutting your eyelids with them overused eyeliner brush except that bottle is very expensive and yes you still need to replace it.
So there is this small number on each makeup products in a small circle which has 6-24 months. That is not the product number my apples. It is the expiring date.
Thank you for reading
I hope you enjoyed reading…
