Spring is the perfect time to update your makeup bag. Refresh yours using these 4 tips.
1. Lighten up your face! Use a lightweight tinted moisturizer or add a few drops of your usual foundation to your moisturizer for light coverage that enhances but doesnt cover up your own natural beauty.
2. Check expiration dates! Mascara expires in 3-6 months of use. Old mascara can lead to eye infections so if it feels, looks or smells suspect, toss it out!
3. Wash makeup brushes. Swish around in warm soapy water and lay out on the counter to dry. Once they're dry, store in a drawer or closed bag to keep clean.
4. Check ingredients for toxins and allergens. Concerns have been raised around certain ingredients like parabens and phthalates that may disrupt hormones or become toxic with long-term exposure, or sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) which is a source of skin allergens. If you're starting to switch over to green beauty products, to do it gradually. To get the most benefit, start with products you use over large areas of your body.
