First of all, some mascara brands and products are more prone to clumping. For example, anything that promises to thicken or lengthen lashes will have a little “body” and the risk of congealing in one messy, ugly clump. Some tips
1. Wipe off excess mascara from the wand before applying.
2. Let the first coat of mascara dry before applying the next
3. Use an old mascara wand, or a mascara comb, to remove clumps
4. If there’s just too much mess, start over: swipe a cotton bud into makeup remover, then spot-clean any smudges on your eyelid and undereye area. Then, dab a little makeup remover on your fingers and use to wipe off mascara from your eyelashes.
