Hey ladies...Ever think to yourself “I should really get rid of some of this make up” or “my brushes just don’t work as well as they used to.” It could mean your make up drawer needs a face lift. Taking brushes and wands from container to face and back can cause bacteria to grow inside your make up. Here are some general time lines for make-up disposal: 

  • Foundation--3-6 months 
  • Liquid Concealer--3 months 
  • Powders (such as Blush, Eye Shadow and Pressed)--1 year 
  • Lip Stick & Gloss--1 year 
  • Mascara--3 months 
Regularly washing brushes will help to extend their life and improve their coverage.  To do so, simply wash with a dab of shampoo and lay flat to dry.

For the month of January, I am going to focus on 10 minute tricks you can perform from the comfort of your couch to help combine your hibernation with organization.
