How Long to Keep and Clean Your Makeup Tools

Just like our makeup, all of our makeup tools and brushes have a shelf life, too. Cleaning your brushes and makeup bag gets rid of any bacteria on that could cause breakouts, irritation, or inflammation of the skin. It also helps to keep bacteria out of your makeup, especially in your powder blushes, foundation, and eye shadows.

Makeup Brushes: 1-3 years, depending on the quality of the brushes. You want to clean your brushes weekly (if not daily) in a cup of water and gentle soap/shampoo. You can lay them flat to dry on a towel. About once a wash them in alcohol and let them dry standing up. Every 2-3 months, wash your big brush (foundation and blush) in conditioner as well.

How Long to Keep Your Makeup – Foundation and Concealer

Choosing your makeup can be a big and fun decision, but you shouldn’t have to reap the negatives of wearing old makeup. That can bring itchy, irritated, and broken out skin. So how long does makeup last?

Water Based Foundation: 6-12 months. Because liquid foundation is water based, it will not last as long as powder foundation. Check the color, because it can turn a more yellowy color once it has gone bad.

Powder Foundation: up to 2 years. Make sure that your powder doesn’t contain any water ingredients like aloe, chamomile, or oat extract. Be sure to keep your brushes clean because bacteria can easily grow in your powder if your brushes are dirty and if kept in a damp space.

Powder or Stick Concealer: about 2 years.

Liquid Concealer: about 1 year. The biggest sign concealers have gone bad are if your face breaks out.


TIPS: Remember to check for other signs that your makeup has gone bad such as a change in smell or color. Store your makeup out of damp places like the bathroom, and keep your hands and brushes clean when applying your makeup.

How Long to Keep Your Makeup – Eye Makeup

I love makeup and found out the hard way that makeup, lotions, and other beauty products have an expiration date. You can tell if most products expire by a change in color, smell, or if they cause your skin to breakout or become itchy.

How can you remedy this? Get rid of your old makeup, lotions, shampoos, ect., and keep your makeup and your brushes cleaned and stored properly. Your makeup should be stored in a dry place where direct sunlight can’t get to it. So keep your makeup out of your bathroom. Store your brushes in a plastic or glass container standing upright instead of keeping them in your makeup bag all the time. This lets them air out and will keep your brushes in good shape longer. Clean your brushes about every 2 weeks (you can clean them evert day or every couple of days) by using a store bought brush cleaner or use a gentle soap like Johnson’s and Johnson’s mixed with warm water. Swirl the brushes into the water one at a time and let them dry on a towel or standing upright.

Eye Shadow/Eye Cream: 3 months (eye creams can be sooner). To keep your eye shadow clean, wash your hands before applying your makeup and clean your bushes.

Eye Liner: 3 months. Pencil lasts longer than liquid or gel eye liner. If you see a white film on the tip of pencil eyeliner and it can’t be sharpened off, then you need new eye liner.

Mascara: 2-3 months. Other signs you need to go mascara shopping are if you smell a gasoline like odor, it becomes clumpy, or you get a site or pink eye.

How to Achieve Success

How to Achieve Success

How to Achieve Success – Most assume that they keys to success are dedication, good social skills, and intelligence. Sorry, folks. Unfortunately, or fortunately if you’re model-turned-politician Mara Cafagna, humans are much more shallow than that. Science indicates that appearance is among the most influential factors of how the world responds to someone. The next time someone nags you about spending less time shopping, send them here…. We’ve got the inside scoop on how to achieve success: it depends largely on your look.

At long last there is a reason to drop dollars on the elusive Birkin bag. Those articles widely known to be of designer make increase the odds that people will react favorably to the wearer. A number of respected experiements on costly signaling theory have demonstrated its validity. Evolution and Human Behavior’s September 2011 issue contains a study in which scientists evaluate how those wearing designer logo’s versus how those without logos are treated. The study found that those with recognizable designer labels were more likely to be met with cooperative attitudes, to succesfully solicit charitable donations, and even to be reccommended for job openings.

Social status alluded to by apparel is not the only factor that comes into play, but don’t return that bag just yet. Studies indicate that if a woman dresses more provacatively she is assumed to be less efficient. To some this may seem like common knowledge, but how, exactly, does one define how much leg is too much? The study in question did not have drastic differences between the women who were provocative and those who where more covered up. The “provacative” women wore skirts that were hemmed only slightly above the knee and had one more measely button of their blouse undone. The devil is in the details. Even more astounding is the amount of time in which these judgements of efficience were made: it took only three seconds.

For women, one’s percieved level of beauty has profound implications on how to achieve success. It signals your genetic quality, overall health, and reproductive potential. Even more shocking is that evolutionary psychologists confirm that this a reliable means of assesing such things. They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and to a degree this comforting thought is true. For example, while thinness is idealized in the United States, impoverished countries are prone to lust after curvy women. However, there are certain traits that are judged as more beautiful to the world at large, such as symmetry. For reasons not yet understood, genetic quality is reflected only by facial features. All the more reason to master your makeup technique. (Fashionmedz.com is a great place to start.)

Why then, are we so hung up on thinness? A lower body weight is associated with elevated economic standing. This occurs because those who stay slim are assumed to be able to afford a more costly diet that will not lead to weight gain. Furthermore, we tend to assume that the obese are uneducated and therefore unsuccesful. This brings us back to the link between percieved social standing and how we are treated. Body dissatisfaction is on the rise in this country due to a number of factors, so something has got to give. Dove’s campaign for real beauty is on our side. Their newest ad is a must see!

How to end this vicious cycle? More to come on that. Stay tuned.
