Tips for Avoiding Clumpy Mascara
Listen up, ladies! It’s time to talk about a common beauty woe – clumpy mascara. Nothing ruins a perfectly good eye makeup look than flaking, clumpy mascara. But fear not, for I have some tips to help you avoid this problem entirely.
Keep mascara away from heat and direct sunlight
Did you know that heat and direct sunlight can cause your mascara to dry out and clump up? It’s important to store your mascara in a cool, dry place. Don’t leave it in your car or in the bathroom where the temperature can get hot and humid. Keep it away from windows that get direct sunlight.
Dispose of mascaras after 3-4 months
Mascara has a shelf life of 3-4 months after opening. After that, it can start to dry out and become clumpy. Don’t use old, expired mascara – it’s not worth the risk of an eye infection. Keep track of when you opened your mascara and toss it out after 3-4 months.
Wipe the wand clean regularly
When you pull the wand out of the tube, it can collect excess product and air, which can lead to clumping. Use a clean tissue to wipe off any excess product before applying. You can also clean the wand with a gentle cleanser, like baby shampoo, to remove any buildup.
So there you have it, my top tips for avoiding clumpy mascara. Remember, prevention is key – so take good care of your mascara and it will take good care of you.
