Makeup Check!

It’s that time.

Summer’s over and (let’s face it) fall is here! What does that mean? It means it’s time for a makeup check!


A makeup clean-up is probably a better way of putting it. After a long, fun, product-consuming summer, I’m sure that there’s a lot of clean-up to do!

Start with going through creams and cleansers. Any bottles/containers used up? I thought so! Throw out all empty and unnecessary containers. If there’s a little bit left in some, put it into a smaller and more practical container.

Next, check expiration dates! Always be careful and safe when your skin’s at stake!

Now it’s time to let go of any ancient but loved products that are no longer even healthy to use. Sorry, but safety first gals!

Mascara: 3 to 6 months

Eyeshadow: 2 years

Lipstick: 2 years

Liquid and Cream foundation: 2 years

Powder blush and foundation:  2 years

cream blush: 2 years

Eye and lip pencils: 2 years

Face cream: 2 years

Hand cream: 2 years

Eye cream: 6 months

Next, gently wash all your brushes and tweezers. This is very important as brushes can carry germs and dirt. In fact you should wash your brushes every 2 months.

To wash: Squirt some facial cleanser on the back of your hand and gently swirl the brush hair in it. Rinse with warm water, and avoid getting the glue with keeps the hair in place wet! Set them out on a towel to dry over-night.

This is also a good time to re-arrange your makeup bag! Just an idea…..


You’re all set! Feeling squeaky clean? I hope so! Be safe and healthy!

By the way….I now have 50 followers! Yay! I’m half-way to my goal. Care to follow? 🙂
