Prevent Mascara Clumps With This Simple Trick

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Here's a mascara trick we hadn't heard of til today: To prevent clumping, lots of makeup artists will tuck a business card above the lashes during application—simply brush your lashes up against the card with the mascara wand and, ta-da, clump-free eyelashes! If you don't have any spare business cards lying around, you can pick up already-cut-into-curves Lash Cards for $5.99 for a pack of 10 (double-sided!).
