You've been applying it for years, put it on every day and maybe it's even your desert island must-have but there are still pit-falls to avoid when applying mascara. Here's the 5 most common mascara mishaps to avoid.
1. Too Many Coats
Most mascaras are only meant to be layered twice. The more you put on, the more likely it will dry mid-application - when you put fresh mascara on top of a stiff coat, it's going to clump and look spidery. Stick to one or two coats for natural looking lashes unless you are going for the spider lash look.
2. Pumping The Wand
If we had a nickel for every time we saw someone pumping their mascara wand…. Pumping the wand in and out of the tube pushes extra air into the tube causing clumps and flakes. Pumping also introduces bacteria and will cause your mascara to dry out faster. To get a good amount of product on your brush, twist the wand as you pull it out of the tube.
4. Exposed Roots
For perfect looking lashes every time, try our Conditioning Long Lash Mascara ($16). Lengthens and thickens from root to tip without clumping or flaking and conditions lashes with Shea Butter and Silk Protein.
