Okay ladies, what is the one makeup product you can’t live without? The majority of you will most likely say ‘mascara.’ To make the most out of this must-have makeup product, I thought of 6 mascara hacks every woman should know. There’s a perfect mascara out there for every woman, but you need to know some tips and tricks to use it efficiently for the best results. From having clump-free lengthy eyelashes, to using your mascara in ways you never thought of before.
1. When to throw away your mascara?
Your mascara should be thrown away 3-6 months after you first use it. They usually dry out, and using them for more than 6 months will not guarantee you the desired look for your eyelashes.
2. The secret to clump-free eyelashes.
Don’t blame your mascara for your clumped eyelashes because you might be applying it in a wrong way. After you apply the first coat of mascara to your eyelashes wait a minute so it dries a bit, then apply the second coat.
3. Removing excess mascara from the wand.
There’s a right and wrong way to remove excess mascara from the wand. The right way, is to wipe the extra product off the mascara wand gently using a tissue paper. The wrong way, which most women do, is to rub the wand bristles against the opening of the mascara tube. This will make the product build up around the opening and dry out each time you use it – we are all guilty of doing this.
4. How to fix dried-out mascara?
If your mascara is dried out it should be thrown away! However, if your mascara is just starting to dry out and you need to use it because you have no alternative, you can use this trick. Fill a cup with hot water, and soak the mascara in it (closed) for five minutes. It will then be easier to apply the mascara onto your eyelashes.
5. A trick to get thicker eyelashes.
Yes, there is a way without using fake eyelashes. All you need is your mascara, baby powder and an eyelash curler – simple. Start by applying a coat of mascara, then apply baby powder on your lashes using a cotton swab, finish off with another coat of mascara then curl your lashes with an eyelash curler.
6. Don’t ever share your mascara.
This isn’t a mascara hack, but it’s important to know that you should never ever share your mascara. Mascaras are one of the products that be contaminated with infection-causing bacteria! So make sure you don’t share your mascara with anyone.
