I was putting on overly clumpy mascara the other day and trying to think back as to when I last purchased it. I knew if I couldn’t remember, it was likely quite a while ago! After some further research on how long makeup lasts, I learned that I basically needed to toss most of my makeup due to it being (majorly) expired! Your makeup and cosmetics, when expired, can trap bacteria and cause irritations, infections, breakouts and styes.
