Fix Clumpy Mascara With This One Simple Trick

If your mascara tube has become dry or clumpy, there’s no reason to throw it out. In fact, there’s a quick fix that gives your mascara a second life.

After some time, mascaras tend to get clumpy and looks as such on your lashes as well. (In fact, I’ve encountered a tube here and there that went dry mere weeks after opening it!) Who knew that all I needed was a bottle of eye drops to fix it?

That’s right. Just add a drop or two of Visine (or any eye drops) into the mascara wand. Then, rub the wand around the inside. The Visine softens the mascara liquid and makes it good as new! It’s all about adding moisture back into a product that is also safe to use on your eyes.

It’s good to note that this beauty hack shouldn’t be used on past-their-prime cosmetics. Mascaras will dry up because they’ve hit their expiration date, but there are times when they’re still new and lose their moisture because the cap was left off for too long.
