10 Simple Ways to Apply Mascara Like a Pro


7. Spoolies!

If lash brushes scare or confuse you, you can still banish clumps and dramatize your eye makeup with the use of spoolies. Available online, at makeup stores and even in most major drugstore chains, spoolies are nothing more than a new, clean makeup brush. Simply run a clean, dry spoolie through your lashes while the mascara is still wet.

Don’t want to hunt down new mascara wands? No problem. Make your own spoolies by recycling old wands. Simply remove all traces of mascara first by cleaning it in a small dish of eye makeup remover, followed by washing it with baby shampoo or makeup brush cleanser. Finish with a thorough rinse in cool water.
