Unused makeup attracts bacteria. Here’s what to toss or clean

When one of Noëlle Sherber’s patients came to see her several months ago, the Washington, D.C., dermatologist noticed that the woman had an eye infection. It was a small sty and easily treatable, but Sherber still wanted to know what caused it.

Sherber learned that the patient, who had been at home since mid-March, had recently put on a full face of makeup using products that largely had sat untouched for months after she, like many others, scaled back her usual beauty routine during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I asked, ‘How old is your mascara? Your eyeliner?’ ” said Sherber, a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and co-founder of Sherber and Rad. The woman, Sherber noted, had not purchased new cosmetics in a while and seemed to think that because she was not using her eye makeup often that it “extended the life span of the product.”

Mogul Kylie Jenner teams up with The Grinch for special Christmas make-up range

Cosmetics queen Kylie Jenner has teamed up with The Grinch and they are likely to steal Christmas – with sales of her make-up range.

The beauty mogul, 23, looked stunning posing in a shimmering emerald outfit and red bikini as her Kylie x The Grinch Christmas collection was launched on Thursday.

And if the reality TV star’s past success is anything to go by, it will be celebrity rivals such as Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Victoria Beckham and Lady Gaga who will be green with envy.

They will certainly have to sell a lot of lippy to keep up with this Kardashian. Kylie is already worth £526million and her range with Dr Seuss’s ­ultimately lovable grouch is likely to make her even richer.

Every year in the UK alone, the beauty industry is worth £28billion and the average woman spends £400 on cosmetics.

Bobbi Brown Is Launching a Makeup Line of Her Own

Bobbi Brown is ready for round two.

Four years after departing Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, the makeup artist-turned entrepreneur’s self-named brand — which under ownership by the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. grew to more than $1 billion in retail sales –— Brown is ready to launch another one.

Jones Road, a tightly edited line of makeup staples made with clean ingredients and designed for all ages, skin types and tones, makes its debut today on jonesroadbeauty.com.

The collection is reflective of a new non-corporate era in Brown’s professional life and the fundamental changes she’s noticed in the way women now want to wear makeup.

While the timing of the collection is certainly serendipitous — sources say her non-compete clause with Lauder ends today — the road back to makeup was meandering, according to Brown. The line comes after a busy four years, during which she got her nutritionist certification
