2) Cleaning Prevents the Clumps. No one likes clumpy mascara. Unless you’re Tammy Faye (RIP), you probably do your best to avoid little mascara balls at the tips of your lashes or the “lash reduction factor” where eight lashes combine into one big one with a big glop of mess at the root. Here’s a tip: clean your mascara brush. Once a week to once every two weeks, twist the brush in a paper or cloth towel (not tissue or toilet paper) to get rid of the gunk.
3) Smudge No More. Have you ever looked in the mirror after a long day and realized you looked like a raccoon? Does mascara irritate the heck out of your eyes? Do you want to kick yourself every time you rub your eyes and smear your mascara across your face? Though waterproof mascara is one option, my latest pick has been mascara “tubes.” Basically, when you apply the mascara, the liquid dries to form “tubes” around your lashes. Remember peel-off nail polish? It’s kind of like that. It results in no smudges, smearing or raccoon eyes. Also, it’s great for people who wear contact lenses or have sensitive eyes.
