I have no patience when it comes to a mascara formula that constantly keeps clumping. Though you want to just discard it, cosmetics can be expensive. Therefore, I found a trick to get around replacing it before the three months when it should be tossed with this makeup tip to solve mascara clumping.

What I found that does help solve mascara clumping is reaching for a tissue and gently rubbing the mascara wand against it first before applying does seem to work for lessening the chance of clumps.

However, if you want to better your odds of avoiding a clumping mascara formula entirely, you might want to stick to a lengthening mascara in place of one meant to thicken.  The reason for this is because it’s a thinner formula that is less likely to gel up on you.

Just in case, you find the thinner formula is too wet after you get it on, this is easy to fix.  Again, get another tissue and press it gently against the lashes.  By doing so, you’ll absorb the excess.

I hope that you try this makeup trick to solve mascara clumping because it has never let me down yet!
