Here’s another tip for Tip Tuesday:

Today’s tip is about fixing a mascara mistake:

How many times have you been innocently doing your makeup when all of a sudden slip and smear, now you’ve got a blob of mascara on your face or eyelid? NOOOOOOO!

Don’t panic! Also don’t act right away!  Let the mascara dry and simply gently wipe it off with a dry cotton swab.  Sounds too simple to be true, but it really is that easy.

Maybe you have rubbed the mascaraa bit too vigorously?  That’s ok, just use your beauty sponge (brush or whatever you applied your face makeup with) to touch up the area.  If you over enthusiastically removed the mascara mistakes from your eyelids, use the corresponding eyeshadow brush and blend out your mistake.

Don’t be too hard on yourself, we all make mistakes. 😉

  1. Great post! I use the dry cotton swab trick too! Sometime’s I’m super impatient and don’t wait for it to dry first so it smudges, but when I exercise patience it works every time!
