How Long Can I keep Using My Cosmetics?

How Long Can I keep Using My Cosmetics?  How long will my foundation, lipstick, mascara, stay fresh and safe for? This is a question we are often asked. If you look at the label on your make up you will find a symbol like this image.

On the little diagram of a pot you will see a number. This is the number of months that you can safely carry on using the item once it has been opened. This system is not very well know or often written about but it is important.

For some items, like nail polish and lipstick this will, most likely, be 24 as you can safely use these items for two years and you can't really come to any harm. this does not mean that the item will still be at it's best from an appearance point of view. This does depend on how and where it's been used and stored but it will not do you any harm.

For other items, particularly eye cosmetics like mascara, the number will only be 6 as you should discarded the product once it has been opened for 6 months. This is because of the danger of bacterial contamination from the product being transferred to your eyes. These can be painful and unsightly and, in rare cases, serious so it is important to stick to these numbers if you can.

Lots of Great Eyeliner Tips.

Lots of Great Eyeliner Tips. Eyeliner can truly transform your look, defining and emphasizing your eyes. Widening, deepening your eyes making them look so much bigger.

So any tips to make applying eyeliner easier and more professional looking are always welcome as it is a tricky thing to get right.

To flatten out round eyes apply a liner only to the top lashes from the outer corners of the eyes to give them a more elongated appearance.

Sharpen your eye pencil every time you use it. This prevents bacteria build up on a blunt round end that could infect all parts of your eyes as you continue to use the pencil. Sharpening also gives a high definition line as a sharp pencil is easier to control and gives a crisp, more intensely coloured line.

Create a smokey evening look by running your pencil under hot water before you use it. This will give you a deeper, more smudgy look.

when you want a smudgy, smokey look, smudge the eyeliner in small, gentle circular movements for a natural, blended line.

Create the classic sex kitten look by lining the top and bottom lashes to the outer corners in a classic black kohl pencil. set this off with lots of curling mascara or false eyelashes.

Try using powder eye shadow applied with a very narrow brush for a smokey line in any colour you fancy. try using a damp brush for even more impact.

Eyeliners will sharpen better after they have been in the fridge for an hour or two. This will give you a really fine point. But warm them up a it by twirling the end between clean fingers before you use it to soften up the tip.

To give your eyes the appearance of being wider set. run a line of white eyeliner pencil on the inside of the bottom rim of your eyes. Add a dot of white to the inner corner of the eyes as well for a fresh eyed look.

At Cosmetics4less eyeliner start from only £0.99 so give these tips a try.

Natural Looking Eyeliner Made Easy

Natural Looking Eyeliner Made Easy Sometimes you want your eyeliner to be a dramatic, visual statement, deep defined lines maybe with a flick up. But sometimes you want a natural look, just enough to outline, emphasise and enlarge your eye for an easy to apply everyday look.

The easiest way to achieve this is with an eyeliner pencil. Always warm up your pencil by twirling the tip between your fingers before use. This will soften the pencil and make it much easier to use.

Then just go back to your childhood and play dot to dot. Draw a line between your eyelashes joining them up at the base instead placing the line over the top. This is very easy to do and to keep on track as you have a clear guide. Try using a brown black or brown pencil as this gives a more subtle yet equally effective result.

This technique will only take seconds once you have got the hang of it and the Laval Twist Up Waterproof Eyeliner in the picture is only 99p from Cosmetics4less. It comes in Black, Brown, and Blue.

Banish Spots and Acne.

Banish Spots and Acne. Cleanliness is the key to minimising acne and spots. Not because acne and spots are caused by dirt but because it is vital to avoid spreading the infection and keeping spots to a minimum.

Wash make up brushes daily, after every single use. gently wash in a weak solution of shampoo in warm water, rinse will and dry thoroughly.  This may seem like a pain but you risk re-infection every time you re-use a brush if you don't.

If you use a stick concealer to hide your spots don't apply straight from the stick, use a cotton bud instead and throw it away. Otherwise the gems from the blemishes are on the tip of the concealer stick and you risk spreading the infection and re-infection every time you use it. Equally don't use your fingers to apply foundation, use a sponge and use a clean one every day. They can be washed in the same way as brushes. Just be aware and make sure that you don't touch your face with any product that you will use again. Germs can multiply within the product alarmingly quickly and you don't want to be spreading them about!

Wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your face as much as you can. You would be surprised at how often we unconsciously put our hands to our face all the time. again this spreads the infection and introduces new germs to existing breakouts. Keep your hair off your face, choose a hair style where you don't have to keep pushing it away from your face.

The prefect storm for spots is where you have your hair with its dirt and oils, which it is bound to have no matter how often you wash it, shedding onto your face and you then follow this by using your hands to push it away.

None of these measures will cure acne I am afraid but you will find that if you are scrupulous about cleanliness and aware of how you can spread infection and re-infection, breakouts can be kept to a minimum.
