Well as we continue with the Fall pre-talk let’s discuss make up. We all have natural beauty. However nothing is wrong with a little enhancement.
With Fall makeup the trend that is always in is your plums. Darker shades are the rave. Be careful with going too dark that it still doesn’t go against your skin tone. Especially for skin with more color. Often times a lipstick or makeup in general that isn’t right will make you look ashy and no one has time for that.
With any change of season you should do a makeup hull. Yes makeup has a shelf life. If you still have 3 or 4 year make up its safe to say you may want to throw it away. Remember one makeup rule is the more organic the material the shorter the shelf life.
Here is a general list to go by when dealing with makeup:
Oil free foundation: 1 year
Cream foundation: 18 months
Powder: 2 years
Blush/bronzer: 2 years
Cream blush: 12-18 months
Eye liner 2 years
Liquid eyeliner: 3-6 months
Mascara: 3 months
Lipstick: 2 years
Lip liner: 2 years
Lip gloss: 18-24 months
Nail color: 1 year
So take some time and throw out that old makeup. The best way to know if your makeup is out to date is to write the date you purchase on them. When K get makeup I take my sharpie and write it on the bottom or sides.
Have some fun this fall. Enjoy the lush colors that only the Fall can bring. However health of your face is always important.
