Out with the Old

If you are not en femme 24/7 like me, you do not use cosmetics on a daily basis. As a result, you probably do not use up the cosmetics before they should be trashed.

Some makeup should be thrown away sooner than other makeup, for example, mascara and liquid eye liner should be trashed after three months. On the other hand, you can keep some makeup for years.

Recently, Daily Makeover described what to keep and what to toss. 

Since I am an Avon rep, I am always trying out new products that they offer; some are keepers, some are not. Either way, the stuff fills the huge tackle box (photo right) that serves as my makeup box.

I usually go through my makeup every six months or so discarding stuff that is old or stuff that I tried once and did not like. (And still my makeup box is overflowing!)

I’m gonna need a bigger box!

  1. Good advice. Don't risk your eyes. As for the tackle box, does that come in hot pink and maybe four times the size?

  2. Sound advice for all makeup!

    FGI (for general info) I covered my Walmart tackle-box with wrapping paper, I used a spray glue, lol! I now have it as a box inside an over-night that has wheels, lmao!

  3. Do you know any femulators who do not need a bigger makeup case...or, for that matter a bigger closet/wardrobe?
    Happy New Year.
