How to save dry mascara
HAS your mascara dried up? Don’t worry, you can still get it out of the tube by dampening the wand applicator.
This is the save-money advice from Peter Schmidinger, a top make-up artist.
The water re-softens the mascara, which allows you to get any remaining clumps out of the tube.
The golden rule for mascara is that it lasts for six months after being opened. To make sure it does last that long and doesn’t dry out sonner, Schmidinger urges users to draw the wand applicator out of the mascara tube in one clean sweep and not make a pumping movement.
“If you do this, more air gets into the mascara and ensures that it dries out faster,” explains the expert at Germany’s VKE beauty society. – dpa
