Ladies, we love our humps & lovely lady lumps (like Fergie) but hate clumps on our lashes. So here’s how you apply mascara without clumps with a regular round mascara bottle.
Step one: Twist the wand as you pull it out. If there is still too much product on the wand, wipe it on a paper towel. It’s important that you use a low lint paper towel and not facial tissue which depending on quality can leave lint on your mascara brush.
Step two: Wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes. Then sweep it straight up while slightly spinning the wand.
Let the coat dry completely before applying a second coat or you will get clumps and probably pull out some lashes.
Another option is to try Mega Effects by Avon which has been featured in InStyle, Vogue, Allure and Fitness magazines. Check out the buzz here! This mascara promises no clumps and Ms. ME demos it in the video below. At a regular price of $10, this is our C2 option*. You can even get one now for only $7.99 at Ms. ME’s Avon store.
Our E option is Lancôme Definicils high definition mascara at $27.50. While we haven’t used this mascara before Lancôme is a brand we’ve used and trust.
The V option is the ever dependable “maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s” Maybelline Great Lash Mascara which was my go to during my cash-strapped teen years with a regular price of $7.
Bonus tip: When applying mascara, hold a tissue under lashes so that makeup doesn’t end up on the skin.
