Mascara – Toss your mascara after 3 months. Unfortunately, mascara has the shortest life span of all make up, due to the risk of transferring bacteria back and forth from your eye into the tube. If your mascara starts to dry out before the 90 days, toss it!
Tip: Do NOT add water or saliva to your mascara, this only increases the chance of getting an eye infection! Also, avoid pumping the wand into the mascara tube before using, this only pushes air back into the tube causing it to dry out faster.
Eyeliners - Eye pencils are less germ-prone, so use them till there gone! Liquid eye liner is mush less, about 3 months, because they can harbor bacteria in the tube.
Tip: Sharpen your pencils regularly to remove dead skin cells and bacteria.
Powder Make up – Blush, face powder, and eye shadows contain little or no water making them last longer than creams and can last up to 2 years or more! Liquid shadows can last about 12 months.
*Warning* – If you’ve had an eye infection, you’ll need to throw out all the eye make up and applicators you used from the time the symptoms started. The virus/bacteria can live inside your make up, and you could possibly develop another infection.
Lip Sticks – A Lip sticks life span is around 2 years. Lip Stick will not necessarily spoil but it can dry out, making it difficult to apply. Lip Sticks can also spread germs across your lips, so if you’ve been sick and using your lip stick…toss it!
Foundations/Concealers - Moisturizing foundations and stick concealers can hang around for 18 months. Once foundations are open, they begin to break down and over time it goes on cakey!
The House of Hair recommends, as do many others, that you store your make up in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. You should also make sure your lids are tightly closed after each use. Also, using good quality make up will go along way. The House of Hair uses Sorme, which is a sophisticated, multi-tasking line of makeup. Sorme is formulated with clinically proven anti-aging peptides, natural antioxidant botanicals, sunscreens and the finest color pigments available.

So, now that you know the life span of your make up…go into your make up bag and look to see what you can keep and what you can toss! After you toss it…stop by The House of Hair and pick up some Sorme!
