Mascara is the number one product I need to apply every day. I can live without foundation and eyeliner, but mascara is a necessity. Even though applying mascara is a task you do every day, you might be making some mistakes when applying mascara.
The brush has too much product: When you pull the wand out of the tube to apply mascara, it’s important to clean off the excess product. Piling on too much product at once always leads to clumps.
You’re Using Too Much: Two coats of mascara is the amount you need. Any more coats will likely result in clumps. You can use a mascara comb to separate lashes.
Using Expired Products: After three months, you should change your mascara. Bacteria grows on the wand and inside the tube, which can lead to irritated eyes. Even if you’ve only used the mascara once or twice, the three-month rule still applies.
Pumping the Wand: You add air to your mascara when you pump the wand in and out of the tube to get more product. This dries out the mascara and causes it to clump. You should dip the wand in once. if it’s not enough mascara, you’ve probably run out.
