Your makeup bag is a place that can easily get overloaded with products….guilty! And since the New Year is coming up, it’s the perfect time to start cleaning it out. So, take a look inside that bag, and start tossing these products:

Start with the dirty brushes and sponges. These can really irritate your skin and to keep them up to par you’re going to want to clean your brushes every week and clean your sponges after each use. Along those same lines don’t save blotting papers as they are typically only for one use!


Next, if your foundation or concealer is turning colors, this means that it is expired which usually happens between 12 and 18 months. But if you’re a fan of natural makeup be aware because those expire between 3 and 6 months. Another great tip is with eyeliner because if you keep them longer then three months they can actually cause eye infection…who knew!
