Anyone have guidelines on when makeup expires? I keep hearing different things! I definitely throw things out when they start smelling/looking funny. But does anyone throw things out before that? I rarely use things up, so I know I have products that are several years old. Some of them look fine. How long do you usually keep makeup?
