I have a problem with my mascara smudging under my eyes throughout the day, giving me black spots under the eyes. What can I do to prevent it?

To prevent you mascara from smudging under your eyes throughout the day, try experimenting with a few brands to see which one doesn’t. If the problem still persists, try pressing some powder all over your eyes before you apply the mascara. I use MAC Blot powder – it keeps all eye makeup sealed and lasting all day. You can also try using waterproof versions of your favorite mascara, as they are more durable and resistant to sweat and heat.
