I like to be organised especially when it comes to my makeup because I have so much of it. I have often seen my mam trying to figure out if her makeup has expired or not. At some stage I saw organisation posts online about makeup expiration where there were several mentions of writing the date on tape or directly on the product. I thought the tape was a pretty good idea and I’ve been organising my makeup this way ever since.
Without further ado – here’s how I organize my makeup:
When I buy a new product the first thing I do is write down the month I opened the product. Then I read the “date once opened icon” and count when the product will be out of date. For example, I opened this Revolution eye shadow palette in June 2018. The expiry date says 12 months so therefore the product will be out of date in June 2019.
I have these square pieces of paper that come in handy for things like this. I write “Ex Date/Exp date: June 2019 etc. “on the piece of paper and then cut it out.
I tape the piece of paper onto the back of the product. So it looks like this.
I check my makeup products each month to check if anything is out of date. When a product reaches its expiry date I just look at the date and toss it in the bin.
