So, to start, the first and most important step to take inventory of the products you use and to assess their ingredients. As tedious as it may seem, it’s important to familiarize yourself with ingredients and to find helpful tools to guide you along the way. Toss any products that are due to expire. Everything has a shelf life. Mascaras and lipsticks go bad the quickest and they can spread dangerous bacteria.

The best way to make organizing easier is to sort the product out according to its shelf life. Follow the general rule that mascara, and liquid eye products once opened should only be kept 2-3 months, liquid foundation up to a year, and lipstick up to a year, then you can grab what you need easier and keep track of the “age” of products in your makeup bag.


Clean the interior of your bag as well. A disinfecting wipe is good for any type of plastic-lined bags. For soft cloth versions, you can just throw in a washing machine with your laundry.
