Don’t you hate it when your mascara looks perfect and then it suddenly doesn’t when you do a check up at lunch? Us too! Well no more flecks or smudging or your eyes after this quick beauty tip.
There are multiple reasons why this can be happening: your mascara formula is old, drying out, or even waterproof, that may make it flake or smudge. These things can make it look like you have black freckles on your cheekbones—not a good look.
To get rid of those annoying black marks, try brushing the excess mascara away with a transparent loose powder like the NYX Cosmetics Studio Finishing Powder Translucent Finish ($10). To do so dip a small, fluffy eye shadow brush into a transparent loose powder, and wipe any excess mascara off of your face.
No more black flecks or runny mascara for you!
