- You are not using waterproof formula
If you are not able to hold the curls, make sure to use a mascara that has a waterproof formula. Waterproof formula will help hold the curl in its place better than the regular formulas.
- You are not separating your lashes
No matter what you do, at times the mascara will clump your lashes together and thats VERY annoying! make sure to comb through your lashes with a spoolie after you apply the mascara so that your lashes dont stick together!
- You are not wiping the excess product off the wand
When you pull out the wand from the tube, it has more product on it than you will ever need. YOu need to wipe it off before applying, this way you can prevent lashes from clumping & sticking together.
- You are not applying enough coats
Most of us, just put on maximum 2 coats, because there is a misconception that the more coats you apply, the more lashes will clump, but applying 4 to 5 coats will always lead to more volume and length. Remember to put on waterproof coats so that the curl holds.
- You are not throwing the old mascaras away
You need to throw away your mascaras if they are more than 6 months old. Be aware of how long you have had them and try throwing it away before it get old and smelly!
