According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, it is a good idea to switch out eye makeup every so often. Three months is recommended, especially for some types of products.  Prolonged use can result in bacterial contamination, and cause eye infections (University of Rochester, Health Encyclopedia).  Makeup unlike food products generally do not post expiration dates.

Eye shadow palettes are a practical choice.  The next time you are in the market for an eye palette, remember there are plenty of black owned makeup brands offering palettes that include foil, matte, and shimmer eye shadows, in addition to highly pigmented, powder and cream eye shadows.  In this post, we review cosmetic brands and present eye palette options.  Our focus was on companies that offered palettes that included at least 5 colors.
