    you should consider ditching the lipstick thats over 6mos old in terms of open product. makeup is a huge contributor to skin and eye/lip infection as it collects germs and provides a continual breeding ground for mold and germs. the longer its in service the more germs and mold that collect on/within makeup. look at your makeup and you'll see a calendar that tells you how many months its considered safe to use once opened. if you cant find this on your makeup and you know you've had any of your makeup open and used more than 6mos consider replacing that makeup. lotion / foundation makeup has an even shorter use time once open and again you can that on their containers. if you cant find a date but again know you've had the lotion / foundation at least 4mos ditch it.

    I love this! I enjoy all your content, but as a history buff-this was especially interesting. Especially how you followed it from beginning to present time, including trends, & had your friends in their own natural makeup company explain the ingredients! Have you done an 80’s look? I need to check. I don’t think I can imagine you in true 80’s “fashion”! lol. It was fun! Many blessings!
