Out With The Old

Hey beauties, as we have entered a new year, it is time to do a cosmetic overhaul.

Just like food makeup and skin care products do EXPIRE; some sooner than others. Here is a simple breakdown.

Mascara expires fast: Throw out after 4-6 months. NOTE: don't pump the wand in and out -- you're only exposing the product to air which will cause it to dry out faster

     My faves: Maybelline falsies and L’OREAL Voluminous

Eyeshadow will last you up to 3 years, (there is no water so bacteria can’t grow) NOTE when used on a damp flat angled brush, eyeshadow can be used as an eyeliner!

     My faves: Urban Decay, Coastal Scents, Smashbox, NYX

Pencil Eye/Lip Liner trash after 3 years. NOTE: Sanitize with a spritz of alcohol after sharpening.

     My faves: MUFE (MakeUp ForEver), NYX, Urban Decay, Sephora

Foundation: water based goes up to 12 months, oil based goes to 18 months. Note: Shake regularly to limit separation of product!

     My faves: MUFE HD, Revlon Photo ready

Powders, blushes, bronzers: up to 2 years, like eyeshadows they lack water, the favorite playing ground for bacteria!

     My fave: E.L.F (Eyes Lips Face) HD Powder, MUFE HD Powder, NARS blush

LipStick: can go up to 14-16 months. NOTE: Sanitize with a spritz of alcohol.

     My faves: NYX, Chanel

LipGloss: Like mascara can expire quickly, toss after 6 months, especially if color begins to change or it has a foul odor.

     My faves: NYX, AVON, E.L.F.

Always keep your makeup brushes, sponges and applicators clean. It will be hygienic for you and your clients, also it will help extend the shelf life of your makeup. Wash your makeup brushes very often in warm soapy water with a brush cleaner or with baby shampoo. If possible keep  separate sets of brushes; one for personal one for professional. Sponges should be washed every week and rinsed in cool water but replaced every few months. Of course pro brushes should be cleaned after every client!!!

Hope This Helps
Make It A Beautiful Day!
