Sometimes it can even hurt your skin instead of helping when you are using products that have gone bad or is out of date. Thats why i want to share this list with you guys. A list of how long your make up products actually lasts normally.
How long does my mascara last? – Your mascara often say on the package that it will last for 6 months after you open it. But you should definitely switch that out more often than that.

Try to switch it out at least every 3 months.
How long does my eyeliner last? Here it depends if you have a liquid eyeliner or if you have a eyeliner pencil. The liquid one last about 1 year, and the pencil one last around 2 years.
