Few mishaps can ruin a look more than runny mascara - it can make even the most put-together person look sloppy! Unfortunately, smudged lashes may be one of the most common problems that ladies encounter. Luckily, there are a few tips to help keep your makeup on your lashes, and not below your eyes.
According to Oprah.com, industry expert Ross Burton reminds women to coat their lashes from the base upward, as only applying mascara to the ends can weigh lashes down and deposit product onto the skin.
He also recommends dusting a bit of loose powder on lashes, as the particles will help the fringe hold onto the mascara.
Finally, women who find themselves constantly looking like a raccoon may want to try an acrylic-based tubing formula like blinc Mascara (formerly blinc Kiss Me Mascara). Instead of painting lashes, which can lead to runny eye makeup, this innovative product forms small tubes around each lash that won't flake or smudge.
But unlike typical water-resistant formulas that can be hard to take off, blinc Mascara is easy to remove - the tubes slide off with gentle pressure and warm water.
