eye spy !

I eye spy something on my eye called a stye! ewwww!!! It hurts badly and its so gross but sadly it means i have to buy new mascara and my recent eye products i used wahaa.

So bye bye Covergirl lashblast and rimmel eyeliner into the bin you go!

Anyway on to my point, here are the shelf lives of your make up!

Eye shadow: Lasts up to 3 years. Watch for discoloration and, if you live in humid climates, mold.( so even if you sadly love them and they are ancient, please put them in the bin!)

Eye Liner: sharpen regularly. Can last up to three years. (Yeah right! mine lasts a couple of months)

Mascara: Bin after 4 months, don't pump the wand as it lets air, creating more bacteria! eww try swirling the brush instead

Lip gloss: 6-12 months. I know mine smell funky after a while and when they do, the go in the lip gloss graveyard!

Liquid foundation: 12-18 months. Be sure to check regularly for a weirdo smell! And if the product starts to separate in the jar,BIN IT!!

Powder foundation: 2 years.

Lipstick: 2-3 years. check regularly for odd smell and mold in humid climates.

Also washing brushes and sponges are a must! Preferably once a week! I tend to wash them at night, so they are more or less dry by the morning or do it on a weekend when you probably wont wear make up!
