Mascara tips? Mascara is a makeup cosmetic commonly used to enhance the eyes. Its effects include darkening, thickening, lengthening, and/or defining the eyelashes.
Mascara normally comes in one of three forms: liquid, cake, or cream. The modern mascara product has several formulas. However, most mascara cosmetics contain the same basic components of pigments, oils, waxes, and preservatives.
Of all the makeup cosmetics, mascara is one that women wear on most days.
This article will give you some mascara tips, and also enlighten you on when to replace your mascara.
How Long Does Your Mascara Last? | When Should I Replace Them?
If mascara is not used, the formula itself is packed enough with preservatives for it to last up to two years. But when it is used all the time, it changes the story.
The purposes of eyelashes are to protect the eyes. And also prevent contaminants and particles from the air and environment from getting into the eyes.
Therefore, when mascara is applied to the lashes of the eyes, and the mascara applicator is dipped back into the tube, anything that is collected on the eyelashes (bacteria included) will get into the tube and this is where possible problems can be created. Touching the mucous membrane of the eye with the mascara applicator is very easy to do also compound the issue.
As a general rule, it is best you replace mascara every 3 months. So if your mascara stays longer than 3 months, you should make efforts to replace them.
