Listen up girls, organizing makeup can be easy and simple. In this Half Hour Organizing Project I show you how to organize your makeup using some small containers.
I actually made this video almost 2 years ago but knew it HAD to be a Half Hour Organizing Project! I have also included how long you should keep certain kinds of makeup and some containers to use
Acrylic counter top containers
How long to keep makeup:
Lipstick 1 year
Loose powder 18 months
Liquid eyeliner 6 months
Eyeshadow 2 years
Mascara 3 months
Eye pencil 1 year
As a rule of thumb, anything liquid is good for one year. Lipsticks generally start to have a smell after one year and that signals bacteria is growing. Powder products can last as long as two years. Of course, never share things like eyeliner and mascara.
This is all about keeping your life simple. Shoot for one black eye pencil, one brown pencil, one palette of day colors and one for evening, one mascara, one foundation, concealer, and powder, & a lipstick and gloss for all occasions.
