Clumpy and Extending Mascara

Mascara has a tendency to get clumpy in the container, and the application brush retains the clumps, transferring to the eye lash.

Solution: Hold applicator brush under running hot water for a couple of minutes, rotating the brush to allow the water to completely rinse the brush free of debris. Leave a bit of water on the brush. This puts a bit of moisture back into the container, and your mascara will go on more smoothly. This is a good thing to do if you run out of mascara—the water will allow you to get a bit more mascara until you can purchase new.

*** DO NOT put water in the actual container—this will cause the mascara to be to thin and runny. This can be used with water-proof mascara too.
