-Discard all products beyond their use-by date.

-Check the expiry date on each product. Make up products, once open, should be discarded according to their ingredients. Follow these guidelines:

-Mascara: about three-four months after opening. If you use it a lot it may be that it doesn’t even last three months.

-Foundation in cream form, correctors, shadows or rouges in cream form: these last about a year and a half.

-Lip gloss: about two years. See when the color or texture changes; it is possible that if you have exposed it to temperature changes then it may have gone off.

-Check the product packaging, a symbol such as this one normally appears and besides it a number and M ( for months). The number tells you the number of months for which the product will last in a perfect state once opened. It is also important for you to ask when you buy. Products which last over 36 months will not have this symbol.

-Face creams and cleansers have different shelf lives, depending on their ingredients- They can last from 3 to 12 or 24 months.

Clean all your products with a damp towel, and dry them with a soft cloth. They will come out looking new.

Don’t forget to clean all your brushes, and you’ll see how much easier it is to put make up on. Here’s how:

Natural hair brushes.

∑ Clean them with a mild shampoo, with a neutral fragrance.

∑ Rinse them in cold or lukewarm water (avoid using hot water)

∑ Apply a hair pack or intensive hair conditioner

∑ Allow it to take effect for a few minutes.

∑ Rinse again, until you are sure there is no remaining soap.

Synthetic-hair brushes

∑ Clean your synthetic-hair brushes with a grease-removing product, such as washing-up liquid.

∑ Rinse them in lukewarm water and ensure there is no remaining soap.

TIP: Always leave your brushes to dry on a towel; never let them dry vertically in a cup, as in this case the water would enter the brush’s handle and ruin it, besides which the hair will part.
