Somehow, no matter how careful you are, your mascara always seems to travel from your lashes to your eyelid…every…time. But we just discovered a helpful solution to make sure it stays in place.
What you need: Your mascara and a free hand.
What you do: After you apply a couple of coats, immediately place your index finger in the gap between your eyelid and eyebrow (aka the spot where your not-yet-dry eyelashes hit). Then bat your eyelashes a few times against your finger while your mascara sets.
Why it works: The excess product will come off on your finger--not your brow region. And by the time you’re done batting your lashes, your mascara will be dry, so you can go smudge-free throughout the day.
