I have loved playing with makeup since I was a little girl, so I was thrilled when I was old enough to wear it out in public without getting a telling off from my mum. However, I was never taught about making sure my cosmetics and applicators were kept in good condition. Luckily, I never picked up an infection from wearing mascara that was two years old, and by following my blog posts, you won't either! Learn about the shelf life of cosmetics, how to clean your brushes, and how to spot makeup which is no longer good for use. By doing so, you can be confident about the products you are putting on your skin.
