ARTIST TIP | The Toothpick, an Impromptu Lash Comb

A toothpick is one of the most basic beauty tools around. We all know the esthetically pleasing benefits of a toothpick post-meal…and we also all know the horror when we realize we’ve just been talking to someone with a giant chunk of food wedged between our front teeth! Where’s a toothpick when we need one?!

Well, the benefits of toothpicks don’t stop there – I find toothpicks great for separating lashes and for getting rid of stubborn clumps of mascara. Use one end of the toothpick to pull through any tangled lashes. Make sure to start the movement of the toothpick outward from the root of the lash to the clumped end. You always want to be delicate around the eyes.

p.s. Just don’t use the same toothpick you used for your mouth for the separating!

p.p.s. If you have too many clumps, it’s probably time to replace your mascara. Toothpicks can only do so much! Check out some recommended mascaras to try!
