Smudge Proof Mascara Tips For A Wild Night Out!

Smudge Proof Mascara

Any mascara product does not always mean smudge proof mascara, so how do you keep your mascara from spreading? If you are enjoying a wild night out, at some point, your mascara will be tempted to darken the area under your eyes. Unless you are wearing a permanent mascara, or even a semi permanent mascara, your best bet is to follow these tips to keep your lashes long and dark, and keep your face clean of mascara residue!

One of the most important factors in smudge proof mascara is your wand, or brush. Depending on the type of mascara brush your mascara comes with it’s either going to provide a smudge proof effect or leave you with clumped up mess. You also need a separate clean brush to apply pressed powder on your lashes. Pressed powder? That’s right! You can create your own smudge proof mascara by covering your lashes with pressed powder to coat them before applying your mascara. This will help the mascara stick to your lashes all night. However, if you have sensitive eyes or wear contact lenses, to not attempt this trick since you might be risking eye irritation.

Another mascara brush tip is to make sure you twirl your brush in lieu of dunking it in and out of your mascara tube. Pushing the brush in and out pushes air into the liquid and can cause bacteria to form. The bacteria cannot only harm your eyes, but it will affect how the mascara adheres to your lashes.

Do you use a moisturizer or eye cream? Sometimes, the oils found in these products can mix with the ingredients in mascara and break them down, causing them to run. Make sure any cream you have applied around your eyes is completely absorbed by your skin before applying your smudge proof mascara. In addition, apply one of high quality eye lid primers like Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay or Smashbox Photofinish Lid primer. An eyelid primer will create a foundation for applying all your of eye shadow products and will keep the area oil-free which will prevent smudges from occurring in the first place.

The only way to know which mascara won’t smudge is to try a few of them. Reportedly, one of the best smudge proof mascara options is Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara, considered by many as the best Maybeline mascara. Don’t let your mascara ruin your wild night out!
