How to Extend the Life of Your Makeup Products in 5 Ways

When your make-up is not properly cared for, it can spoil much quicker before its expiry date. Especially when you have splurged a good amount of your salary on it, it can be furstrating.

Between defective products and bacteria, the content in your makeup bag has a lifespan, which, if ignored, can lead to skin problems and breakouts.

Today, we are showing you how to maximise your makeup products by extending its lifespan in 5 ways.

How to Extend the Lifespan of Your Makeup:

1. Blush

Expiration Date: Powders can last for 2 years, while creams for 1 year

Applying on top of wet foundation or using dirty brushes can your blush to go bad. If your cream or powder blush becomes chalky and hard, it is time for a replacement.

How to clean it: To prolong your powder blush, you can use a clean brush and allow the foundation to set for a few minutes. When doing this, you are not transferring oils onto your blush, which can encourage the growth of bacteria and cause the blush to harden. Unfortunately, there is no Rx for creams.

2. Lipstick

Expiration Date: Lipstick or gloss can both last about 1 in your makeup case, therefore, feel free to apply and re-apply as much as you want.

Signs you need to replace it: Watch out for signs that your lipstick is getting old, including strange smell, poor application texture, or an oily film at the top of the stick.

Signs you need to replace it: Make your lipstick last longer by keeping it out of humid and hot humid areas. The excess moisture can cause its pigments to break down. Storing it in a fridge is a great place to keep it during humid summers.

3. Foundation

Expiration Date: 6 months to 1 year

Signs you need to replace it: Once your foundation smell, starts to separate, or change color, it should be replaced for the sake of your skin.

How to clean it: Foundation is another product that cannot be cleaned. To preserve its shelf life, use only clean brushes or sponges as applicators.

4. Mascara

Expiration Date: 2-3 months

Signs you need to replace it: If your mascara clumps, flakes, dries out, or smells, then, it’s time to throw it.

How to clean it: There is no way to preserve or clean your mascara, therefore, your best bet is to just replace it. “These days, there are many amazing drugstore brand mascaras, and therefore, you can afford to buy them more often,” according to Gita Bass, celebrity makeup artist and Advisory Board member of Simple Skincare.

5. Nail Polish

Expiration Date: Nail polishes can last for at least more than 1 year. These polishes are not bacteria hotbeds, but you will get less wear, once the formula starts to smell funny or separate.

It is best to throw the nail polish, once it starts to go bad. There are many budget brands that give you wear and color on the cheap, therefore, you need not hold onto bad polish.

How to clean it: Nail polish that is going to go stale, usually gets thick and difficult to spread over your nails.

Instead of getting rid of the bottle, you can add some drops of acetone nail polish remover into the bottle, and shake well to loosen it up. The polish remover can help thin out the liquid, therefore, you can get a few more applications out of each bottle.
