When Should You Get New Makeup?

I am a makeup hoarder. I buy new makeup on a somewhat regular basis, but I won't through away the old products. I save mascara tubes and liquid foundation bottles long past the time I purchase their replacements and use them randomly when I want to change things up a bit or look like my "old self." This is an incredibly unhealthy practice and my skin is silently screaming at me for it so for this week's Makeup Monday I'm giving you list of beauty products and their lifespans. If you're not thanking me I know your skin is.

Mascara: 3 months
Liquid Eyeliner: 6 months
Foundation: 6-12 months
Lipgloss: 1 year
Concealer: 1 year
Nail Polish: 2 years
Lipstick: 2 years
Powders: 2 years
Eyeshadow, Bronzer, and Blush: 2 years
