Applying mascara is the simplest…said no girl ever. You have to make a certain weird face, open your eyes crazy wide, hold the wand at a particular angle and try your best to apply mascara without poking your eye. And, after all this scuffle, you are still sometimes left with clumpy mascara on your lashes. Not fair!
While we can’t do anything about the weird mascara face and eye-poking, we can certainly help you with getting clump-free mascara. Let us make this everyday struggle a bit easier for you.
Here are three simple steps to get clump-free mascara in a single try every day. Take a look.
- Step 01: Apply eyelash primer
- Step 02: Run mascara wand on a tissue paper
- Step 03: Brush your lashes with a clean wand
Step 01: Apply eyelash primer
Lash primer not only preps and protects your lashes from heavy-duty mascara but also helps separate your lashes and ensure smooth application. Applying your mascara on dry lashes can dry out the mascara and thus result in clumps. Always prep your lashes with a lash primer or dust some loose powder on your lashes to make sure the mascara glides on smoothly without leaving any clumps.
Step 02: Run mascara wand on a tissue paper
Maybe you pump the wand up and down or sweep it over the rim of the bottle before applying mascara to get rid of the excess product. However, nothing seems to work and you still end up with clumps all over your lashes. Here’s a trick: Take a tissue paper and run the wand gently over it to get the excess mascara off. Next, apply your mascara on your lashes and this time, it will apply smoothly in one single coat.
Step 03: Brush your lashes with a clean wand
Once you are done applying your mascara to your upper and lower lashes, take a clean mascara wand (from an old, used mascara bottle) and run it over your lashes from base to tip in a rolling motion. This will help get rid of any product lump and separate the lashes to give you dramatic, falsies-like lashes.
