#MakeupHack: How To Apply Multiple Coats of Mascara & Avoid Clumping

Going for really bold eyes? One coat of mascara isn’t going to cut it. You want to apply 2, 3, 4 heck we’ve known women to go full on 5 layers (though please don’t try the 100 applications trend here, that’s a recipe for disaster). But if you want to get a little more of dramatic effect you are going to want to apply multiple coats. And if you aren’t careful you can get some clumpiness So how do you do it? The trick is taking your time. 


  1. Apply thin layers.
  2. Let it dry completely between coats.
  3. Do one eye, then the other
  4. Then maybe do a little twirl? Decide on a lipstick shade? Recite a nice mantra (I am the person I wish to be).
  5. And then apply another coat.
  6. Repeat
