1. Keep It Clean
2. Heat It Up
Another useful tip is to avoid the hassles of clumpy, cakey mascara by warming it up slightly, before applying. Simply roll the tube briskly between your palms, and the heat from your body will warm the product, enabling a smooth, clump-free application.
2. Be Choosy
Our favourites are the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara and Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara. The former has a Smart Curl Brush and D-Panthenol Moisturizer which gently adds volume to the eyelashes for a fresh day look. The latter is best suited for a night out as its easy applicator gives the eyelashes plenty of volume and definition while keeping them smudge-resistant and waterproof.
4. Wear It Right
It's always advisable to allow your mascara time to dry and set between coats. Use an eyelash comb to carefully remove any clumps of excess product, so the next coat can be applied smoothly. Opt for mascara that will curl your lashes outward, so you don't need an eyelash curler. Additionally, switch from your conventional black mascara to a tinted one. Purple, mauve and turquoise blue add a dash of excitement and tend to brighten the eyes, making them appear larger. Lastly, be sure to change your mascara every 3 to 6 months, to keep your eyes healthy and avoid bacterial build up.
