It’s AMAZING what a difference a little swoosh of mascara makes – I feel totally naked without it! Eeeek!!
But isn’t it annoying when you reach for your favorite mascara and discover it’s turned into one BIG dry, clumpy mess?
Well friends, (…drum roll please!) let me share a little-known beauty trick that can help give YOUR mascara a new lease of life…and add a few more precious days of wear!
What actually causes mascaras to dry out?
A tell tale sign (apart from the 3 month rule) that your mascara is an ‘old gal‘, is looking at the bristles – are they worn out with little product on them? And is the texture different than when you bought it, or maybe it’s not waterproof anymore – then your mascara is officially OLD!
BUT, sometimes mascara’s can dry out before their ‘time’ is up – and this is where I hope to help!
So next time, instead of pumping the wand, try twisting the mascara in the tube. This could help prolong the LIFE-span of your mascara!
Find out quickly by doing a simple “Patch Test”…explained below!
