There are quite a few beauty blunders out there that drive Team MDC to seek out solutions. From smudged lipstick to blush overload, we’ve got the fix! And although it’s not quite as bad as getting lipstick on your teeth, clumpy mascara is a common (yet easily avoidable!) issue. Prevent the messy spider lashes altogether by avoiding these mascara mistakes!
1. It’s WAY Past Expiration.
Once your mascara starts to dry out, the clumping is sure to begin. Replace your tube every three months to prevent cakey lashes or worse — a bacterial eye infection (gasp)!
2. Too Many Coats.
Seems impossible, right? We love to layer mascara, but TOO many layers can turn into a clumpy catastrophe! Allow mascara to dry before applying another layer and try to keep it to three coats — max!
3. Your Wand Is Overloaded.
If you notice that your wand has too much mascara build up, scrape the brush up against the inside of the tube to remove excess product. Then clean your wand off with a makeup-removing wipe like Garnier Clean+ The Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelettes. Now, it’s just like new! Remember, a brush full of clumps can only mean one thing — must we remind you?!
