Little Makeup Tips #1


I'm going to start a little series like my Nail Diaries but on Make-up Tips where i will post little handy tips every so often to hopefully help at least one person out!

Today's is a really simple one and a lot of you probably know it already but this is my savior!

When applying mascara, no matter what one i use, i always seem to get it under my eye:

As you can see, it is all under my eyelid and this annoys me no end! 

Such a mess!

So to get rid of this, i used to just use my finger and i would smudge it everywhere and feel as though i should start my whole face again!

Now however, i wait until the mascara is all completely dry and when it is i get a cotton bud and gently roll this back and forward under my eyelid to wipe and remove the excess mascara! 

You don't need any water or anything on it, just the bud itself effectively removes the mess!

Rub gently until all of the mascara is gone!

Much cleaner and no smudging! There are other ways of getting rid of excess mascara, like using a baby wipe, but at least this way, you don't rub off any of your other makeup :).

This also works if you get mascara on your brow bone just under your eye-brow when doing your top lashes, like i usually also do!

Hope my eye close-ups aren't too gross, haha!
(as well as my stray eyebrow hairs as i'm growing them to thread, sigh..)

Hope you try this quick tip if you didn't know it already! Maybe you're just not as messy as me!
What are your little handy makeup tips?


  1. I get mascara on my eyelid aaaaaaall the time and I use cotton buds too! Great post! :)

  2. Thanks for the tip, I never knew about this and my mascara always gets under my lower lashes, so annoying. I used to use my foundation brush to get it out but I shall try your tip next time. Thanks so much! xo

    1. You're welcome.
      I used to just use my fingers and smudge it all over!


  3. I just use Avon eye makeup remover, works like a charm.:-)


Thanks for commenting beauties, i'll get back to you soon!
