Our favorite makeup brands are releasing their spring-inspired collections, so take time out to examine what needs to be tossed from your current cosmetic repertoire. All makeup has a shelf life and the expiration date should never be ignored. Here are a few simple guidelines to live by when it comes to your endless pit of products!
