For a better way of controlling and applying mascara on your eyelashes, slightly bend the wand into a curved shape.
We’ve all gone through the burden of having mascara smudged on our perfect eyes shadow. Avoid making this mistake again by doing this: place a business card (or any type of small and bendable card) behind your eyelashes. It will work to protect your eyelids while you apply your mascara. For an additional pro tip, cut the card into a curve to make it easier for you.
Sticking to tip #3, you can also use an old spoon for this trick. Use it while the bowl is facing downwards for your upper lashes. Position the spoon bowl-side up when you are working on the lower lashes.
Who knew that you could fix and correct clumped-up mascara with just a two to three drops of Visine eye dropper?

Want to have thicker-looking eyelashes? Never forget to coat the back of your eyelashes with mascara as well. Only a few do this, but it makes all the difference, and your eyelashes will stand out among the others.
Finally, once you are through with your mascara application, clean your mascara wand thoroughly. Using an unwashed brush can potentially cause eye irritation and infection. It is also the reason why you have clumpy mascaras, so it really makes sense to clean it before and after using.
