When you should throw away your makeup

If you still have some products in your beauty cabinet that date back to your high school years, you may be surprised to hear that cosmetics actually have expiration dates.

Not only will expired beauty products be less effective, but they can potentially lead to irritation and infection if contaminated with bacteria, New York-based dermatologist Dr. Joshua Zeichner told Shop TODAY.

While you can usually find the expiration dates marked somewhere on the container, even if you can’t, there are a few rules of thumb that experts recommend following for when you should be replacing your makeup.

According to Zeichner, things that come into direct contact with your skin, like mascara or eyeliner need to be replaced more often than other products. It’s recommended that you replace mascara every three months, lipsticks every year and eyeliner every three to six months (though pencils last longer than liquids). Primers and

Drama! Kylie Jenner has responded to the backlash she received after asking fans to donate money to a makeup artist’s GoFundMe page, who many believed was a close friend of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. 

For context, Samuel Rauda, who has worked with Bebe Rexa, Bella Thorne and Erika Jayne, was injured in a car accident accident on March 14. As a result, he’s raked up quite a bit of medical expenses, with his GoFundMe page setting a goal of $120,000.

Jenner took to her Instagram Stories on March 18 to ask her followers to donate and many fans quickly shared their disapproval with the 23-year-old billionare, calling out that the Kylie Cosmetics founder not only has the funds to pay off the GoFundMe entirely herself, but should pay off the bill if Rauda is a “friend.”

It all began in 2007 with the revolutionary launch of the Beautyblender sponge that changed the way women applied make-up, forever.

Buffing and blending foundation, tinted moisturisers and other bases had never been this easy to apply, nor more flawless on the face.

It was a complete gamechanger for professional make-up artists and beauty junkies alike, and one, 13-years on, we’re still very grateful for.

Although we love a make-up brush (or 10), the use of multiple beauty tools has since been replaced by a piece of innovative foam in a host of shapes and sizes that deliver the perfect canvas for our make-up.

Not only do make-up sponges allow for more buildable application, their porous texture holds onto make-up better than other tools and they guarantee an even complexion, every time. But with so many designs and textures to choose from, how do we spot the difference?

Light at the end of the tunnel: Michael Portillo on Britain’s greatest rail wonders

While hundreds of largely empty trains run on Britain’s transport systems during the pandemic, our gorgeous heritage lines are shut by government order. The day they reopen – maybe alongside pubs and restaurants – will be an occasion for national celebration. Those antique railways offer so much that is good. They represent our history. They were restored by determined people offering up chunks of their precious time on earth so we could experience unforgettable moments of nostalgia, beauty and joy. Dr Beeching may be reviled by rail enthusiasts for closing lines in the 1960s, but he opened up enormous opportunities for railway resurrectionists. The Bluebell Railway claims to have been the first preserved standard-gauge railway, running between Lewes and East Grinstead, along the route of the old London, Brighton and South Coast Railway.
