Old make up.....

This is so stupid, I know I should chuck it....
I don't really wear make up at all, maybe occasionally a dash of mascara, eyeliner etc. tinted moisturiser if ds2 has been up a lot, no more than this ever, for anything!

When I got married 7 years ago I bought some expensive Estée Lauder make up, I still have the face primer and the powder. I haven't worn them since I got married but I can't bring myself to throw them away. They worked so amazingly well!

Someone just tell me what to do please!

I'm a makeup artist..if it looks and smells fine and works fine you'd be mad to throw it away! Powder products last for aaages.
Mascara is dodgy to keep because it gets loads of bacteria in it .

Never keep mascara but everything else is fine if it looks and smells fine!

I sanitise my makeup regularly with isopropyl alcohol spray and keep my pencils sharpened. Dont use ethanol alcohol because that'll ruin the products.

I have special makeup items I keep but rarely wear! I think it's fine to keep and not really use them. My wedding lipstick hasn't been worn since because I want to keep it nice and just look at it grin

Womens Refuge might like any make up nobody wants.
