I Guess We've Thrown Out A Lot of Makeup Since COVID

I have thrown out the 1/2 bottle of anti ageing foundation by Bobbi Brown, and any creamy eye shadow I didn't use.

 

@Shanus Should I throw out the lose powder I used?  I wasn't using compacts.

 

Thanks.Smiley Happy

Bacteria grows over time.  It's not worth the risk.  I have unopened backups.

 

With the virus I am only using eye makeup.

@ECBG  I've thrown out a lot of makeup. Old foundation, eye shadow, mascara. I'm older now and the eye makeup makes my eyes itch.

I won't throw out any of my makeup.

Maybe I would consider it if I actually had Covid.

Change your pillow cases more often....... if you're going get hipper about any thing.

(i.e., hair out in public)

When you touch the mouth of a makeup bottle or use an eyeliner or eyebrow pencil, bacteria can be introduced.

I haven't thrown any out.

I have some products that don't get the use that they once did, so I had to dispose.  I noticed that while I still wear makeup daily, I don't touch it up throughout the day as much as I once did.
