When is it time to break up with your make up?

The lipstick you bought to wear on that first date, the eye shadow palette you bought for your wedding that’s now older than the kids, that expensive foundation that you bought a few years ago but you only wear on special occasions - chances are you could have similar products that may now be out of date, lurking in your make up bag.
