If you're like me with an unsteady hand, applying mascara can be a bit of a messy situation. Mascara bits can get swiped on your lids and smudged on your bottom lash line. There are nifty mascara gaurds that you can purchase to protect the skin around your eyes from getting dabbed with makeup, but why buy them when you can create your own? Here are 3 ways to use everyday products from home as a mascara protector.
Q-Tips Lightly hold a Q-Tip vertically against your eyelashes and brush your mascara upwards. Any mascara bits will be brushed onto the Q-Tip. Do the same for the lower lashes.
Business Card Use a business card and lay it behind your lashes and brush your mascara upwards. Any mascara bits will be brushed onto the card. Do the same for the lower lashes.
Piece Of Plastic Or Thin Cardboard Cut a piece of plastic or cardboard to fit the shape of your eye, preferably cut it with rounded corners (so you don't poke yourself). Brush your mascara upwards and any mascara bits will be brushed onto the card. Do the same for the lower lashes.
