3 tips for clump-free lashes
Mascara. It's something I have a love-hate relationship with. I love to wear it but sometimes it can be really tedious to apply.
Low and behold every time I start to apply it the phone rings, someones at the front door or my two-year old decides she'd like to crack a tanty, so there I am with mascara half applied and already starting to set. Seriously though? Don't you think applying mascara is like a ticking time bomb? I mean, once you start that application process you have to be mighty quick to finish off the job or it can get very messy. Like globs of blackness messy. Yep, not pretty.
So, here are three useful tips to help you achieve clump-free lashes the next time you apply your favourite mascara.
- Don’t pump the wand in and out of the bottle. That's right ladies, no pumping! If you do this you're just asking for trouble. If you're a culprit of doing this, what you're essentially doing is pushing air back in and out of the container... only drying out your mascara and causing it to get all clumpy and flaky. Gross! This also means it won't last as long. Instead, gently twist the wand in and out of the container in a circular motion. Voila! This will ensure you get the best out of your mascara. Plus it will last longer. Bonus!
- As soon as you remove the wand from the bottle be sure to scrape off any excess mascara - any extra product on there will just cause unwanted clumpiness.
- Want to curl those bad boys? Then you need to follow the same theory you would if you were going to curl your hair; start from the root and work your way down, holding the curler for about 10 seconds at a time.
