Makeup Tip #9: Better Mascara Application, Every. Time.

Want a 2 second tip that will give you a better mascara application every time?  Really?  You do?  Ok, here it is.

Bend your mascara wand at a 45 degree angle.

Yup.  That's it!  I did say it was a 2 second tip, didn't I?  Bending your mascara wand will allow you to apply your mascara at a more natural angle and allow you to get at the inner and outer corner lashes no matter what the wand looks like.  I remember reading this trick from a Cosmo magazine back in high school, and every wand I've bought has ended up bent like this since.  Benefit even used to make a mascara called "Get Bent" that came with a pre-bent angled brush head.  Sadly, it was discontinued, although I think the biggest reason people didn't like it was that the formula of the mascara tended to get clumpy.

So, would you ever bend your mascara wand?  Do you do that now?  What do you think, does it help you apply your mascara better or not?
