Here is the segment that I did on Fox News Rising this morning! This is the 2nd time and I really enjoy my little 5 minutes of fame! :) Betchya didn't know I worked in News for 3 months of my life! lol! Anyhoo! Here are the tips in writing for "A fresh start to your Makeup Kit"...What to toss and What to be sure you have!
Expiration dates... beginning from the time you first open these products Powders and shadows: 2 years
Cream shadows: 12 to 18 months
Foundation: 1 year
Lipstick & lipliner: 1 year
Mascara & eyeliners: 3 months
Makeup brushes: Clean weekly ...depending upon use
Makeup sponges: Replace weekly, or when sponge becomes soiled Best ways to tell when a product is old:
Smell your cosmetics...if they have an funny odor, they may contain bacteria and should be thrown out.
Always make sure that products are closed tight and stored out of sunlight, as this can destroy the preservatives.
If there are any changes in color and texture, Chuck it ASAP!
Must Haves for 2011:
A good moisturizer
Cream or Stick Foundation
Blush and/or Cheek Stains
