How can we talk about eye makeup without discussing mascara? Here are some important tips for proper purple mascara application:
- Hold a spoon underneath your eye when applying mascara on your lower lashes to avoid getting marks on your skin. Put the spoon below your eye with the curved side facing out, and then apply your purple mascara like you normally would to your lower lashes. That way, the mascara will land on the back of the spoon rather than your skin. This trick also works when applying mascara on your upper lashes.
- Add a few drops of saline solution to a mascara tube to re-wet flaky formula. If your mascara hasn’t reached its 3-month expiration date but it’s getting a little flaky, revive it with a couple drops of saline solution for a smoother application.
- Spin the tip of a cotton swab over a dried mascara mistake to remove the spot without ruining your eye shadow. If you accidentally touch your eyelid with mascara after you’ve applied your other eye makeup, wait for the spot to dry, then place the tip of a cotton swab on top of the spot, and spin it until it’s gone. If you try to remove the mark while the mascara is still wet, it will smear and then you’ll have to re-do it.
- De-clump your mascara by combing through your lashes with a clean toothbrush. Grab a new clean toothbrush and comb it through your lashes from root to tip. The bristles will grab the excess mascara and leave you with clump-free lashes. A used toothbrush could lead to irritation or infection.
- Create the look of thicker brows by using a mascara in the same color of your arches to darken, fill in, and set them. First, wipe off the excess product on a napkin so you’re not left looking like Martin Scorsese, then brush your brows in a slightly upward and outward direction. This will help thicken and fill in your brows, while also setting the hairs in place.
- Apply mascara on your roots to hide regrowth or gray hairs. If you’re in a pinch and need to cover up some gray hairs or root regrowth, grab a mascara in the same shade as your hair color, wipe off the excess product along the neck of the mascara tube and brush it directly onto your roots.
- Make your purple mascara do double-duty as a gel eyeliner. Swipe an eyeliner brush over your mascara wand, and then use the formula on your liner brush to trace your upper (and lower, if you so desire) lash lines for a gel liner finish.
