When To Toss Your Mascara

  I've been on this mission recently to clean out unnecessary things in our home. One of which includes my makeup stash. I have 4 tubes of mascara in there and it got me thinking... "How long should I keep these?"

Mascara has the shortest life span of all make up because the risk of transferring bacteria back and forth from your eye into the mascara tube is so great. The truth be told, most women keep their mascara for far too long! 

  1. If you have had it for 90 days.
  2. If you have had an eye infection. 

  • Never sleep in your mascara. It can make your lashes stiff and more likely to be brittle while your tossing and turning causing breakage.
  • Do Not Pump the mascara brush. It simply pushes air into the tub causing the mascara to dry out quicker.
  • Never share mascara. 
  • Use a Primer. Lash Primers thicken the lashes before you apply mascara allowing you to have the best results. 
  • Use a formula infused with peptides and antioxidants to condition lashes.  {I personally have sensitive eyes, if your similar there are some amazing products on the market that are Ophthalmologist tested, safe for contact lens wearers and people with sensitivities. HERE's Where I get mine}

This chart is awesome at letting you know how long you should be keeping the other items in your cosmetic bag...

Heres to beautiful, healthy lashes!
