No More Mascara Mishaps
It’s Friday night, and you’re getting all dolled up to go out. You want those voluminous lashes that could carry you away with the wind if you blink a little too fast. While learning to master your makeup technique, someone once told you to pump the wand in and out of the bottle to coat the brush evenly. For the love of L’oreal, don’t.
Pumping the wand in and out introduces air into the bottle, drying out the product, making it flaky. Nobody likes crunchy spider-leg lashes! It also creates a microcosm for bacteria to thrive, where they’ll eventually end up in your eye. Ew-! For gorgeous volume, apply the mascara with a zig-zagging motion from the lash roots to tips rather than using straight strokes.
