What to do if you get mascara under or over your eye while applying.

This is a make-up artist trick that I learned a few years ago.  If you get mascara anywhere but your eyelid, your first impulse is to wipe it off, right?  Wrong.  Let it sit there until it's dry, then scrape it off with your nail.  It sounds unpleasant, but you won't be scraping hard or long.  Hope this helps!

thanks for the tips, I usually wipe it off right away and sometimes get messed my eyes so I have to redo my eye makeup over again.

I use an ear bud, wet it very little and remove easily the unwanted mascara around the eyes. I can put some concelear on the ear bud and cover the place if anything.

That's interesting, Beautifile! I usually just swipe some eye makeup remover over the area and it disappears. Another tip is to start with your eye makeup BEFORE apply your face makeup, so you won't have to redo your undereye concealer/foundation in case of a mistake.

Also try waterproof mascara

I have always heard that if mascara tends to smudge easily on your face after use, that you should be using a waterproof formula. I personally love the MAC waterproof ones.

Use a mineral tinted sunscreen instead of foundation

I don't like the feel of most foundations so I just use a tinted sunscreen.  It evens out my skintone and gives me an extra glow.  If you don't like foundation but what a little shimmer, this is what I do every day and everyone comments on how great my skin looks.
