Spring 2018 Makeup — Time To Reorganize Your Makeup Bag

 A change in season is the perfect time to reorganize your makeup bag. This is the time to throw away anything that is too old to use because it can cause harm to your skin and eyes. Unlike food, there isn’t an expiration date requirement on makeup. Expired cosmetics can irritation your skin and give you eye infections. Studies have said, every time you put the wand back into the tube of an eyeliner or mascara, you are letting in bacteria.

Even though makeup does not have an expiration date it is easy to keep track of it. For example, you can write it down on your calendar to help you remember. Strangely, there are some women who do not like letting go of their makeup, especially their mascaras and eyeliners. A main reason is because makeup can be really pricy to replace. But in order to keep your skin and eyes healthy it is important replace it.

My Spring 2018 Makeup Replacement Strategy…

Honestly, I tend to stick with affordable high quality makeup. Pixi by Petra is one of the top brands I tend to run to. I really like their makeup bundles and having the flexibility of picking it up at my local Target store. Pixi’s spring palette colors are absolutely stunning. Their spring soft tone are filled with brilliant shades of peach, blush, and browns.

If you don’t have a Target near by, you can pick up Pixi products at pixibeauty.com xoxo.
