Do you know when to throw out your makeup?

When makeup expires!
So the other day i cleared out my entire makeup! And i couldnt believe the amout of stuff i had to throw out!

You should never keep makeup too long, after awhile it starts to build up bacteria.
And yes makeup does go off!!

So when should you throw makeup out?

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 rancid, throw it out)

Lipglosses/chapsticks: 2 years

Powder eye shadow: 2 years

Cream eye shadow: 12-18 months
 
Eyeliner: 3 months

Mascara: 3 months ( some last longer , again 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
