Question: Everytime I wear mascara, it always ends up on my upper eyelids and under my eyes too. How can I prevent this from happening?
Answer: First, try a mascara formula that is waterproof and or smudgeproof. Keep the application sheer and let it dry well after applying it. You may need to experiment with different brands and formulas as everyone's skin and chemistry will react differently to each product. Also, using a small wand (as opposed to a thick, chubby one) and applying the mascara while concentrating on the roots and not so much on ends will also help. As a bonus this will define your eyes while keeping the ends natural and feathery-looking.
There are certain times and places (weddings, the beach, a sudden emotional breakdown) when you just need waterproof mascara. The problem is, so many waterproof formulas can be drying or not waterproof enough. Here is a list of formulas that can get you through tear sessions, surf outings and more without a single smudge or flake. Find out which mascara will help you weather those soggy situations.
