You bought an expensive mascara and unknowingly left it. Soon after you have realized that, it turned dry and clumped. What would you do? Some people add a little baby oil or water to get back its consistency. But this can only mess up the application. Most of us might have undergone this situation. Isn’t it? Now, you can save your mascara!

Take your contact lens solution and add good 5 drops of the liquid to the mascara bottle. If your mascara is some months old and flaky, then adding about 8 drops of the contact lens solution will help. By doing this, the dry formula melts well to revive the formula. Please remember not to take a lot of contact solution, as it might create too much of greasiness and liquid to the mascara formula. Thereby, you might notice your mascara running, fading and creasing faster on your eyelids. Now, close the cap of the mascara back. The soft and moist formula of the contact lens solution will help in adding some moisture to the dried mascara.

2. Intensify Your Eyeshadows:
