Imagining your everyday makeup routine without applying mascara seems almost impossible. It is a quick way to make your eyes look bigger, brighter and make you look instantly awake. It really is an indispensable part of every girl’s vanity kit.

But it’s really annoying to see your freshly applied coat of mascara smudge on the lids. It not only ruins your look but also spoils your eye makeup.

01. Blot your eyelids prior to applying makeup

If you have oily eyelids, smudged mascara might be an everyday issue for you. A great way to avoid this problem is to simply blot off the excess oil with the help of blotting paper or tissue to mattify the area. Follow this by applying a mattifying eyeshadow primer to keep excess oil in check.


02. Apply mascara primer

04. Use some scotch tape

Mascara primer may seem like a useless product, but it is anything but that. It not only protects and strengthens your lashes, but also helps separate them to give a natural, fan-like finish. It also prevents your lashes from clumping, which is a really important thing when it comes to preventing mascara smudges.


03. Get rid of the excess product

04. Use some scotch tape
