Don't you hate it when you're applying mascara and tiny little dots get on your lid and even under your eye? Most of the time your initial reaction is to rub it away quickly so that it doesn't dry and ruin your makeup, but often times, if you rub away the still wet flecks of mascara you are also rubbing away the eyeshadow, which ruins all the hard work you put in to making your eyeshadow look nice. So, here's a really easy and great tip:
First, whatever you do, do not try to rub away the wet mascara flecks. Wait until the mascara is completely dry. In the meantime you can finish doing your mascara. Then, take a cotton swab and gently swipe away the flecks. Simple as that.
