Consider expiration dates

If you buy makeup, make sure you can use it before the expiration date.  Check for expiration dates when buying makeup products.

Buy quality makeup brushes

Using the right makeup brushes to apply makeup gives you flawless look. Buy quality brushes and maintain it well to last longer. Wash your brushes every week in

soap and water every three to four months. Carefully rinse the brushes and applicators, squeezing away any excess water, then leave them to air-dry on a clean towel.
