However, sometimes your wand leaves behind frustrating little cosmetic clumps, which bind the lashes in unsightly ways. Luckily, there are a variety of tricks you can use to easily apply mascara completely clump free.

First, start by choosing a high quality brand of mascara. Some formulas lengthen the lash, while others offer waterproof color or curling effects. Pür Minerals Triple Impact Mascara is a formula that accomplishes all of these tasks—lengthening, thickening and curling all at once, while also providing all-day water resistant application.

As you slide the mascara wand through the lash, continue wiggling the wand slightly until you reach the end. This serves to keep the lashes separate from one another.

If you find that some minor clumping has occurred, you can use a tiny lash brush to smooth out the fine hairs, separating them and unclogging the blockage. You can also use a thoroughly cleansed mascara brush as a substitute for smoothing out tiny clumps left behind.
