Mascara is the essential to any good look, but clumps, flakes and spider-lashes are not. Sometimes it is hard to apply your mascara and avoid clumps and flakes especially. Well here are a few tips on how you can minimize those annoying flecks and globs that come with your mascara.
The best way to apply mascara and to avoid clumps is to start at the base of your lashes and wiggle your brush upward. Some people like to twirl their brush while they are moving it up – which also helps reduce clumps. Remember – always allow your lashes to dry before you apply a new coat. If you start to apply a new coat to already wet lashes you will get clumps and globs of mascara that stick – and those are such a pain to remove!
A trick to keeping your mascara’s usable for longer is to make sure that you don’t pump your brush in and out of the tube. Pumping your brush allows air to creep in and dry out the formula which creates clumps on the brush. If you notice that your brush has clumps or globs simply take an eye lash brush (like Motives Lash Brow Brush) and run it through your mascara brush. This will remove those unwanted globs and keep your brush fresh for each use.
Tip: Use a lash primer before you apply your mascara. A lash primer is the perfect formula to keep the clumps and globs at bay. Check out our blog on Motives Lash Primer to learn more about why you should use and how to apply.
