1. Save Your Mascara Brush

A good mascara is less about the product and more about the brush! If you find a brush that really works for you, save the wand, clean it and use it on a cheaper mascara for your next purchase.

10. Always Let Mascara Smudges Dry

We've all been there! Instead of wiping away a mascara smudge while it's still wet (which will only create an even bigger mess) wait until the product has dried. After 5 minutes, use a Q-tip to remove the smudge.

11. Make Sure Your Eyeshadow Reached Your Brow

If you don't apply your eyeshadow far enough toward the tip of the brow, your eyes will appear way smaller. Instead, imagine a line running from the tip of your brow to the outer corner of your eye. Your eyeshadow should reach this line.

12. Always Blend Into Your Hairline

Be sure to blend both your foundation and your contouring all the way to the hairline. If you don't do this, you'll be left with a visible line that looks unnatural and tacky.
