Sealing the Tube Tightly
You must always remember to close the cap of your mascara tube very tightly. Every time you use the mascara, make sure that the cap of the mascara is tightly closed. If air finds its way into the tube, the mascara will become dry leading to the formation of clumps.
Swirl it Within the Tube
After placing the mascara wand inside the tube, rotate it so that it gets coated with mascara. Never pump it upwards and downwards as air will move inside the tube and make your mascara dry and form clumps. It may also lead to the introduction of damaging bacteria into the tube.
