Mascara is one of those makeup items that dries up the fastest and many women go through at least one tube of mascara a month. Before you throw away the next tube, make sure to look at these wonderful uses of mascara wands that will help you reuse the product in a different form! You can clean the mascara brushes with the help of some coconut oil or makeup remover and can use them in these ways instead-
1. Grow those lashes by applying some castor oil to the entire length of the eyelashes before going to bed. A mascara brush will allow you to evenly coat the lashes and to reach the roots with ease. You will see visible results within a week!
2. Love the formula of your new mascara but hate the wand? You can use the product with an old brush that you like instead. If the cap doesn’t fit on this tube then this might become a little tedious but will provide you with fabulous lashes!
3. Use double the action for double the drama. After applying mascara, if you notice some clumps then you can use a clean mascara brush to get rid of them and to evenly distribute the product. As an added bonus, this extra step helps to make your lashes look more dramatic too.
4. Nail the brow game by using a clean mascara brush to remove excess brow powder. A small mascara brush can also be used to groom the eyebrows when a waxing appointment is long overdue.
These are some excellent ways to use your favorite mascara brushes even after the product is all gone. Next time, think twice before throwing away your empties!

this was very helpful. i always used castor oil on my eyebrows not my eyelashes. i may give it a shot
It works wonders, I could literally see my lashes while me eyes were wide open after just a week. Something that had never happened before 🙂
Fabulous post!! Thanks for the tips ✨
I also keep an empty mascara wand for brows.Nice post
Can you add some eye drops to your mascara to get all you can from it when it first starts to dry out?
I am not sure how that would work for waterproof mascara, but you can definitely give it a try. A very tiny bit of coconut oil might work too, but not too much 🙂
Wonderful ideas! I’m never throwing the wands away
The wands are totally reusable 😀 Great point hon 🙂
