How to cope with clumpy mascara?

Apply a very small amount of water or, if it's a waterproof formula, a silicone-based makeup remover on a spoolie brush or a clean mascara wand, and then gingerly wiggle the brush across the base of the lashes to soften the dried mascara and separate the clumps.

You can try this with a dry mascara or spoolie brush, but the makeup remover or water works better to smooth big clumps. The key is to use only a teeny-tiny bit so you don't break down the mascara that you want to stay on your lashes.

To avoid clumpy or messy eyelashes, make sure your mascara wand has only a minimal amount of mascara on it. For some mascaras, this may mean gently wiping the brush with a tissue before applying. Next, apply mascara starting at the base of the lashes, slightly wiggling the brush back and forth as you move it out towards the ends of the lashes.

To create more volume without clumping, apply additional layers using short upward strokes and do this before the first coat dries.

If your mascara is still clumping or flaking, the issue is most likely with your mascara not your application technique! Don't worry, get a good mascara.
