The arrival of Spring means there's no better time than now to do a little de-cluttering, cleaning and sorting...of your makeup bag! Here are Natalie Bloom's top three tips for getting your cosmetics collection Spring ready:
- Like food, beauty products don't last forever. In fact, expired makeup can cause skin irritations or eye infections. Check the packaging of your favourite products and look for a diagram of a jar with a number on it - this indicates the number of months you can use it after opening. Bin anything you've been using for longer than you should.
- Dirty brushes can become a breeding ground for bacteria so make a habit of cleaning them at least once a week. Use a mild shampoo and then lay them flat, rather than upright, to dry. This prevents water getting into the glue and causing the bristles to fall apart.
- Now is the perfect time to refresh the contents of your makeup bag. Why not play with colour and try a bright Nail Polish or Super Glossy Lip hue? Or ditch your heavy foundation for naturally radiant skin and our Mineral Plus Sheer Mineral Tint? After all, this is the season to bid adieu to that beauty rut and have fun with a new look!
