Mascara is a girl’s best friend and most powerful asset. There are common mistakes that every girl makes when dealing with mascara. Want to know what they are and how to amend them? Read on!

Mistake #1: Using Expired Products

After about 3 months, you should pull an ‘N Sync and say “Bye Bye Bye” to your mascara. When it is this old it starts to grow bacteria inside the tube and on the wand. This can cause you to have red, itchy eyes or even pinkeye! By this time the mascara will probably be dried out anyway, so it just makes since to replace it!images (3)

Mistake #2: Pumping the Wand
When you are getting ready to apply your mascara and you pump the wand in and out of the tube to coat it, you are actually adding air to the tube which dries out the mascara! It also causes it to clump and even flake. Try and dip the wand as little as possible to avoid drying it out as long as possible!

Mistake #3: Not Curling Your Lashes
Mascara will give your lashes a lift, but to get that red carpet look, you will need to grab your lash curler. Make sure that you use the curler BEFORE you apply mascara. Curling afterward can cause breakage! Yikes!


Now that you know how to care for your mascara, bat those beautiful lashes ladies!
