#1 Brush your lashes
You don’t need to get rid of empty mascara bottles anymore. Use the wand as a lash comb. Your lashes deserve the extra care and pampering. Brush your lashes gently with a clean mascara wand before applying your mascara. This makes them look neat, tamed and preps them for your mascara.
#2 Tame ‘em brows
This one has to be our favourite. Make the most out of your mascara wand by using it to comb and tame your lashes. Not just this, you can use your mascara as a brow pencil to set your eyebrows in place. Pick a shade that matches your brows and with a very soft hand, run the wand over your brows. Make sure you go very slowly as you don’t want too much product to make things messy.
#3 Fix your greys temporarily
Use your mascara to hide your grey hair and flyaways. How? It’s pretty simple. Take the strand of hair and run your mascara wand over it so that it covers and hides the grey hair. If you have black hair, great. If not, you can buy yourself a coloured mascara that matches your hair colour.
#4 Use it as an eyeliner
No need to panic anymore if you run out of your eyeliner last minute. You can use your mascara as an eyeliner. Yes, that’s right. Pull out your mascara wand and pick some product on your eyeliner brush to make that perfect wing. Simple and convenient, isn’t it?
#5 Nourish ‘em lashes with almond oil
Pampering your lashes is a must if you are on a quest to get those dense butterfly lashes. Once you’ve finished a tube of mascara, cleanse the wand and tube thoroughly so that there is no residue product left inside the tube. Once they are clean and dry, fill the mascara tube with almond oil and use the wand to apply oil to your lashes. Run the wand through your lashes evenly for a better result.
