See It. We all know that you can’t keep makeup forever, but we often don’t realize how quickly makeup can expire. I know that mascara lasts 3 months, but what about the other products? Glamour recently gave an “Easy Way to Tell if Your Beauty Products are Expired.” There is a stamp on each product’s packaging and/or label that tells you how many months you should keep it. So easy! I’ll be keeping this in mind when I clean out my makeup drawers this weekend!
Love It. While I’m tossing out expired makeup this weekend, I’ll take the opportunity to clean my makeup brushes. I use MAC’s brush cleanser to remove makeup residue, disinfect, & condition my brushes. It’s always amazing how much gunk can build up on brushes that are used daily. The cleanser also helps to extend the life of your brushes & shortens drying time. To dry your brushes, I recommend hanging them upside down using a brush tree like Benjabelle’s.
Want It. I am a makeup & beauty product hoarder. I have drawers full of samples, eye shadows, & lipsticks, which can make it difficult to get ready quickly in the morning. This clear acrylic storage piece would allow me to keep the most used items at hand. I love the clear acrylic, which allows you to see what’s in each drawer.
