In honor of the #CarefreeChallenge I thought I would post some ideas that you may not think about. It’s important to keep your makeup and beauty products fresh, and bacteria free! How often do you wash your makeup brushes? It’s an oh-so-boring task that is SO important to keep your complexion clear! I wash my brushes (a thorough soap and water washing) once a week, but use makeup brush cleansing spray after every use. I like Sephora’s Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner. ELF makes a great budget friendly alternative that works well.
Have you thought about how fresh your makeup is? How long does it last, with normal usage? (I’m talking normal daily usage, not the testers in Sephora and ULTA!) Here’s a list, so you can be sure you aren’t keeping your makeup around longer than it should be! Keep in mind there are those of us that
hoard collect makeup and we like to keep the pretties for longer, and not use them. Just sayin’.
Your products will always last longest when you have clean, sanitized hands and use the proper tools. Whether that is a makeup spatula, clean brush or sponge, qtip or a spoolie. How long do your products last? Here’s some general guidelines from a Pro Makeup Artist:
powder products - 2 yrs
liquid products - 1.5 yrs
cream products - 6 mos - 1yr
twist up products(lipstick, eyeliner) - 1 yr
mascara - 3 mos
I know I am guilty of keeping lipsticks and glosses for several years, not that I wear the same color daily! What about you, do you follow something along those guidelines?
