Have you ever noticed how poorly applied mascara can completely derail your eye makeup look? Clumpy mascara isn't exactly a great compliment to your expertly applied eyeshadow. Fortunately, we have some easy tricks that will help you become an expert in no-time:
Find the right type
Just like hair, everyone's eyelashes are different, so you'll need to find the formula that's right for you. Are you looking for more volume? Curl? Test out a few different brands, and remember: the brush matters. If you're not sure which color to pick, choose black – it looks great on everyone.
Use an eyelash curler
Eyelash curlers may look intimidating, but they can do wonders to brighten your eyes. Use the curler before applying mascara, beginning at the root of your upper eyelashes and repeating on the middle and near the tips. Hold for five seconds in each location for curled lashes you can show off.
After applying your mascara, it's time to remove those pesky clumps. Simply reach for an eyelash comb to smooth everything out. You can avoid clumping altogether by removing excess mascara from your brush before applying it to your lashes.
