I’m not one to really lay into people about my “beauty pet peeves” because honestly, if it makes you feel good then do it. I’m just here to help guide people in the most flattering direction, and hope that it helps you feel even more good…or better if you’re a fan of good grammar.
But there are certain things that I see people do that are hygiene issues, or are ruining your products, or are a detriment to proper application, and today’s topic is all of the above.
Ladies and gentlemen Don’t pump your mascara!
And here is a list of reasons why:
So what should you do if you are running low on mascara and need a little more product on the brush? Simply swirl the wand around inside the tube without pulling it out…and probably get a new mascara soon. They do go bad after a few months anyway so if you are running low it’s most likely time for a re-up.
So don’t pump your mascara. Do whatever you want with your makeup, draw a spiderweb on your forehead in July, contour your cheeks with navy blue or wear a green glitter highlight on your nose if it’s what makes you feel poppin’. But don’t dry out your mascara before its time or give yourself an eye infection, because I love your face and I care 😉
