The best thing to do with your dry mascara is NOT to throw it away, take advantage of it instead.
Here are 8 things you can do with it.
Remove stray eyebrow hairs
Get your dry mascara brush, comb your eyebrow with it and reach for those stray hairs. This will darken the hairs for you as you get more precision when plucking. We all know how bad the process of plucking our eyebrows could get, I cannot even remember how many times i’ve missed a spot or even ruined my eyebrow shape. Ever since i started using the above method, my life got so much easier.
Cover those white hairs
Whether you are 18 or 40, you will get white hair some day. First time I found a white hair (and this was a couple of months ago), I got mixed feelings, I didn’t know whether i liked or hated it, I mean i’m only 24, how in the HELL did this white thing find its place in my hair!! A couple of days like i noticed myself loving it, it’s part of maturity they say. However, for some women, finding 1 or more white hairs during their lifetime could be disastrous. So if you are reading this and been through it, here’s your way out of it if you’re not ready to dye your hair.
Get your DRY MASCARA, whether it’s a brown or black one, both can do the job. Brush that white hair off and you’re good to go !
Darken your eyebrows NATURALLY
There are MANY ways out there to darken the eyebrows (ex. eyeshadow, brow gel etc..)
However, if you are on a tight budget, here’s your creative and effective way to have those flawless eyebrows.
Get your DRY MASCARA and comb those eyebrows for a very natural look. The built-in gel in your mascara will keep your eyebrows up and steady all day long!
You can use:
- Brown mascara for brown eyebrows
- Black mascara for black eyebrows
- Light brown and/or gold mascara for blondies with light eyebrows
No-Make up/No-Mascara make up look
Some of us don’t like to apply heavy coats of mascara everyday, therefore if you want to go for something light and natural, you can use your DRY MASCARA to give your eyelashes a good lift! The above picture is an example of my natural eye-look.
DIY Gel Mascara
Get your DRY MASCARA and a hair gel, mix them together and brush your eyebrows to get those well combed, fierce and steady eyebrows. You can also use this method for natural lightly tinted eyelashes.
N.B This works well with long eyebrows
Soften thick eyebrows
If you pluck your eyebrows very often, chances are they will become too thick.
Your solution is BABY OIL!
Just like many of us use baby oil for smoother and shinier legs after shaving, baby oil is a great way to soften up those eyebrows.
Get your mascara tube and add some baby oil into it, brush off those thick eyebrows as often as you can.
Castor Oil MAGIC!
I am sure we’ve heard of this magical oil at least twice in our lifetime! Castor oil (i.e. Zeit el kharwa3) is the BEST medicine for SMOOTHNESS, SHININESS, LENGTH and STRENGTH for HAIR, EYEBROW, EYELASHES etc!
Add castor oil into your dry mascara tube and brush your eyebrows every night before you sleep to get the best results for eyelash growth. You might as well brush your eyebrows on the way for fuller eyebrows!
You favourite mascara has dried out and you don’t have time to get a new one (or you’d rather wait until the beginning of the month to get a new one).
Simply dip your mascara brush into your gel liner and voila!
N.B it will be harder to clean your eyes in this method but DONT WORRY, here’s what you do:
Either use our best friend, THE Baby Oil to remove your eye make up, or use an eye-make up remover thats based with oil.
My favourite oil-based make up remover is Pureté Thermale by VICHY.
It is a bit costly but its definitely worth it. Just a small dip would clean your whole eye make up.
That’s it you guys! Hope this was helpful and fun ❤
Always remember! You can always find creative and effective ways for anything in the world!
