My mascara always goes on clumpy. What am I doing wrong?

— Dennea Alcantara, Belleville, N.J.

Bobbi: Women who typically complain about this are the ones who wear thickening mascaras, like I do. You could try a lengthening formula, which tends to clump less. Thing is, I find that fuller, lusher lashes define my eyes better than longer ones do. My strategy is to keep the wand super clean, since product buildup can lead to blobs.

Try: Clump fighter: Twist the wand of Flower Zoom-In Ultimate mascara ($8; at Walmart) to curl, lengthen and separate.
