Throw Away Old Makeup

Even in this tough economy, do not hold on to old make up. Many of us have old cosmetics filling up the shelves of our bathroom. Did you know that with repeated use, bacteria can grow in your make up and that eye make up is most at risk. Don't risk an eye infection on an old eyeliner.
