Makeup king François Nars once said: “Treat your makeup like jewelry for the face. Play with colors, shapes, structure—it can transform you.” The idea is especially true when it comes to eyes. Depending on how you draw your eyeliner, you can show a completely different shape. Round, almond, wider or narrower: This choice seriously changes your look. And it’s a big deal, since the eyes are the window to the soul.
In case you were wondering, cat-eye makes the eye look widest. Round has the opposite effect. Whatever your dream eye may be, there’s probably a video tutorial on the subject.
Now that you know that makeup doesn’t last forever, it’s time to take a look at all the tubes and bottles and make a decision. According to makeup artists, you can actually have a severe allergic reaction to some expired products. Others are just not effective anymore. Any product that claims to have SPF will just be like a regular moisturizer or bb cream after the labeled date. And acne medications on the ingredient list might just do nothing, after a while.
It’s painful to know you are throwing money in the garbage. But think of it this way: Tou might be saving money on balance. If your skin gets mad, you will have to buy new remedies for that, anyway!
