The Surprising Reasons Your Mascara Keeps Flaking
Celebrity makeup artist Jeanine Lobell says wet lashes are a key offender: "Your lashes won’t separate properly, and the mascara won’t stick properly to your lashes. That will make the bottom lashes smudge for sure." Excuse us while we place our palm to our foreheads—duh! Allow ample drying time so your mascara can adhere properly, or follow Lobell's genius tip of dusting a bit of translucent powder, like Laura Mercier's (), to your lashes to soak up the excess water.
It's understandably tempting to want to revisit your lashes over and over again with the mascara wand to get them looking nice and plump, but Lobell says therein lies the problem: "Flaking is a lot about putting on too much too fast. The soonest you should go back for a second coat is when your lashes are just a little sticky, not wet with product," she explains.
