Mascara. Don’t leave home without it.
Okay I do sometimes leave home without it. But I don’t like to. To me, it’s the number one most important beauty item. What a huge difference it makes to my eyes. With just a couple swipes, I go from tired to terrific. Worn-down to Wowza.
Well, it might not be that much of a miracle worker, but I do like mascara a lot.
And I recently read a fun tip that’ll save you money and make your mascara last longer. It’s too simple and fabulous not to share.
When your mascara starts to get old and clumpy but it’s not quite to the three-months-old-time-to-replace date, carefully drop 4 drops of saline solution into the tube. Put the
magic mascara wand back in and swirl it around a few times and voila – your mascara will last for at least another month.
Using this tip, I’ve been able to stretch my mascara tube usage from once every three months to once every 4.5 months. It’s not a fortune, but it does save some money and every bit counts, no?
What about you? Got any mascara tips? Seriously, I wanna hear them.
