How To Not Get Watery Eyes When Putting On Mascara

April 21, 2016 by Justine Schwartz
shefinds | beauty

I feel like such a rookie asking this–but does anybody else get teary eyed when they’re putting on mascara sometimes? If I really try to get in there with the wand or apply too much, my eyes fill with water. I’ve often wondered if this was a personal problem, but apparently it’s quite common–especially during allergies season.

I recently got my hands on some tips from celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg, who teamed up with Zyrtec to provide allergy sufferers some much-needed beauty tips (‘cuz we all know that allergies ain’t cute). Here’s what Jamie had to say on the topic of watery eyes:

Be sure to apply mascara by starting at the root of your lashes and drawing the wand upwards in one steady motion,” Jamie advises.

Avoid wiggling the wand or blinking, as that can cause eyes to water even more and leave you with smudges.” Interesting!

If the watery eyes get really bad, Jamie suggested using disposable mascara wands. “You will avoid allergens and other build-up that can occur on reusable wands.”

Jamie likes Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara ($7.99) best. #TheMoreYouKnow
