Mascara is a beauty staple that can instantly elevate your look by adding volume and length to your lashes. However, nothing ruins a makeup look faster than clunky, spidery mascara. If you’re tired of dealing with clumps, here are three essential tips to keep your lashes looking flawless.

Choose the Right Mascara

Look for a formula that suits your lash type and desired effect. For instance, if you have fine lashes, a volumizing mascara might be too heavy and prone to clumping. Instead, opt for a lengthening or defining mascara that has a lighter formula.

Proper Application Techniques

How you apply your mascara can make a significant difference in preventing clumps. Start by removing any excess product from the wand. Gently scrape the wand against the tube’s opening. When applying, wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes and then sweep upward in a zigzag motion to separate lashes.

Maintain and Replace Your Mascara

Proper maintenance of your mascara can also prevent clumps. Close the tube tightly after each use to keep the formula from drying out. It’s also important to replace your mascara regularly. Over time, mascara can dry out, making it more prone to clumping. As a general rule, replace your mascara every three months.
