  • Mascara

Mascara should be replaced every three months, since its liquid consistency makes it more vulnerable to bacteria, and its proximity to your eye can lead to possible infections.

  • Liquid Liner

Liquid eyeliners present the same concerns as mascara, so they should be replaced every six months. Pencil eyeliners, however, should last you up two years. Sharpen your pencil with each use to keep it fresh.

  • Foundation

For liquid foundations, say goodbye if you notice any change in smell, texture or color. Most foundations should last you up to a year, but if you’re prone to acne, think about tossing yours every six months.

  • Nail Polish

If you notice a change in color or a funky smell, it’s time to part ways with your polish. In general, it should last you up to two years and some have expiration dates on the back of the bottle.
