Don`t stop at your closets and shelves. Now is the perfect time to get rid of your heavy winter makeup, too.
The mascara you use every day is the one that needs to be replaced most often - about every three months.
As a general rule, anything that`s liquid has a greater chance of building up bacteria. So liquid eyeliners and foundations should be tossed after six to nine months.
If you notice any kind of separation, even after you have shaken the bottle, it`s probably bad.
Anything with a treatment ingredient, like retinol or an antioxidant, should also be used within six months. And after about a year, moisturizers with sunscreen start to be less effective.
The good news? Although they are more expensive, I recommend mineral foundations or powders if you`re going for longevity. I also suggest trying a tinted moisturizer, which serves as an alternative for heavier foundations.
And cleaning out your makeup does have an additional positive: You`ll have plenty of room to store your brand-new products.
