Clear Mascara: Uses, Pros and Cons

We purchase makeup tools because of what they can do. And many times we lose track of the many possibilities a makeup product can do as there seems to be more than one purpose. And sometimes, we underestimate the importance of a makeup tool, either because we are not quite used to the makeup tool.

While for others, you have seen it in some beauty store, but didn’t think it was worthy to be purchased.

A Clear Mascara is just like your usual mascara only without the pigment, hence the name- ‘clear mascara’. It carries the same function as regular black mascara but with additional benefits. Let’s look into what clear mascara can do.

What Can Clear Mascara Do?

Small but very useful is the clear mascara, and these are the many benefits of purchasing a clear mascara:

Defines Natural Lash Curl

The clear mascara helps to define your natural lashes in the most natural way. Using clear mascara is getting a curled lash without looking like you are wearing makeup. This is an excellent option for bare and natural enthusiasts. To achieve a more natural look, apply clear mascara to the top or bottom lashes and curl them. The clear mascara holds up your lash curl for longer.

Used To Set Your Brows

When we step out of our houses we all desire our makeup to stay in place. This is actually possible using the clear mascara, and it can also be used to fill in your brows. If you have brows that are always in a scattered array, the consistency of the clear mascara will help to hold the brows in place. Say goodbye to crazy brows.

Darkens Lashes and Brows in A Sleek Way

The Clear mascara performs similar duties to your regular black mascara, but without the color pigment. Using clear mascara on your lashes or brows makes them glisten with some luster. The same way your lashes look when saturated with water. You get to have your lashes look healthier, that’s a plus for using clear mascara.

It Can Be Worn As A Lash Primer.

Lash Primers have become necessary makeup tools in adding volume to your lashes, and a good canvass for your pigmented mascara. The clear mascara can stand for your lash primer by coating and sealing them with a clear formula. Your lash appears thickened, and upon coating your pigment mascara, you get the same result as a lash primer.

Serves As A Lash Separator

Do your lashes cluster together, looking photo unworthy? Get them well separated with the clear mascara. Clustered lashes can look sparse as lash gaps are noticed in some parts. Get your lashes evenly spread out through your lash line with the clear mascara, making them appear fuller.

Smudge Free

Tired of trying smudge-free hacks with black mascara, and still missing it? The clear mascara is here to your rescue. Coat your lashes and fear nothing about black pigment staining your eye makeup. Say No To Racoon Eyes! -Use A Clear Mascara.

Better Option of Mascara For Eyelash Extensions

Use the clear mascara to coat your lash extensions to keep their curl in good shape. Black mascara can heavily clump your eyelash extension, making it look messy and over done, but not clear mascaras. You give them a good sheen, watch them sparkle as new again.
