Makeup Tips From Bobbi Brown
My mascara always clumps. What am I doing wrong?
Danielle Hudson, Atlanta
Bobbi: Nothing at all. Sometimes too much mascara just gets on the wand. To avoid this, roll your wand against a clean paper towel before applying (avoid tissues, which have fibers that can make their way onto your eyes). Also, be sure to remove that extra glob of mascara at the end of the wand; it can cause clumping.
Put on your mascara by rolling your hand up and away from your eye to help separate lashes as you go. Finish by combing a clean mascara wand through lashes.
