Dear Beauty Banter,
After I put on all of my face makeup and concealer, I do my eye makeup. Sometimes I slip when using my mascara or get dark eyeshadow under my eyes. I try to fix the mistake, but I end up ruining my other makeup and have to start all over. How can I fix mistakes I make with my eye makeup without having to redo my whole face?

Don’t be afraid to switch the way you do your makeup. Try starting with your eyes first and then doing your foundation. It’s a lot easier to clean any mistakes. Another tip is to apply translucent powder like Make Up For Ever’s HD Powder under your eyes. This allows any eyeshadow droppings to be easily brushed away with a powder brush without smearing your concealer. If you slip with your mascara, let it harden. By letting the mascara dry it becomes hard and is easily brushed off with your finger or a brow brush.
