Clump-free lashes don't have to be something only celebrities with professional makeup artists get to rock. If you want glamorous lashes that fan out nice and wide, all you need to do is follow the one thing to do for clump-free lashes. And while you're at it, I dare you to add baby powder to your lashes for even fuller ones!
While lash brushes are important, and not applying too many coats of mascara will help prevent clumps, the ultimate tip for clump-free lashes is making sure you remove all your eye makeup from the previous day before you start applying more. As explained in StyleCaster, "Any leftover, dried mascara left on your lashes overnight will mean definite clumps when you go to apply over that in the morning."
If you're a lazy makeup remover girl, I hate to break it to you that simply splashing some water over your face before bed is definitely not going to cut it when it comes to removing mascara (especially waterproof mascara!).
