To apply mascara properly, you must make sure that the mascara covers the lashes completely - that is, from the root to the tip. For your upper lashes, move the mascara applicator back and forth at the base of the lashes to put down some color, and then roll the brush horizontally through your lashes. Use full strokes.

The result will be a thicker lash, with the ends separated and the base well defined.

Do you have oily skin?

I posted a similar thread a while back, and the skin around my eyes is very oily which makes the mascara break down and smudge throughout the day. Blinc mascara was suggested, because it forms little tubes around your eyelashes, but I haven't tried it for fear or an allergic reaction!!

I've been putting extra powder under my eyes recently throughout the day. This seems to help. I use Lancome Matte powder.

You could also try using clear mascara for your lower lash.

I don't really have any rec since I've only tried Testimo - Kanebo clear mascara, and I love it.

There might be other good rec for clear mascara but better find something you can get easily in your country

I have the same problem. It started smearing on the bottom of my eye. So I went and got the Maybelline Lash Discovery Waterproof. It's this super skinny brush just for the bottom tiny lashes. It works. Stays on all day. Put your non waterproof mascara on the top lashes, then this one goes on the bottom one.

I also will try the clear on. I use to use the Covergirl clear mascara. But this Lash Discovery by Maybelline is doing the job.

If you use a water resistant formula it shouldn't smear. Or you can try a makeup sealant like Benefit She-laq. You paint the she-laq over your lashes and it seals the mascara.

Hi,

The "mascara base" is where the lash growth begins. As the others recommended clear mascara (make sure it's for the eyes because it can be easily confused with clear brow gel) or a waterproof formula (this is what I use because of my oily upper and lower lids).

And apply lightly to the lower lashes... the more you have, the more likely it'll smudge.

Perhaps, avoid touching the area as well if you have a habit of rubbing?

maybe try Fiberwig mascara or Kiss Me Max Volume Mascara, they are both Japanese brand, and last very long~~

thats the reason i never put mascara on my bottom lashes, cause its like right away it always ends up under my eyes, to make my already dark circles look way darker.

if anyone has a solution, i'd love you if you'd tell me it.
