Day 29 – Out with the old, in with the new
There’s nothing like getting organized for the new year.
I was lucky enough to receive some lovely make up gifts this christmas, and also purchased a few myself.
It’s important to keep your make up and beauty products clean and fresh. Every couple of months I like to check everything, and throw away make up if its dirty, casing is cracked, or hasn’t got protection that it’s properly.
On most products, there will be a tiny cream jar symbol to indicate how many months the item will last for.
If I can’t see is symbol and don’t remember if I bought it in the past 6-12 months then I’ll throw it. It’s not point holding onto a product that could cause harm to your face for the sake of a couple of quid.
I like to check for spares before buying new products, I believe you can never have too many nude lipsticks, but still, this may seem like an obvious thing to do, but the amount of times I’ve bought products, especially, eye shadow pallets and then realised I already own similar shades.
Also, don’t be afraid to swatch products before you buy them, and if there aren’t any testers in display, then ask an employee if there’s another you can you. There’s no harm in asking.
Here are my fallen products…
My beautiful Sophora lip crayons.
They were given to me as a gift last November, and since I couldn’t see a clear label of how long they would last I decided to throw them away… It just has to be done.
How often do you clear.out your make up and beauty products and what rules do you stand by?
