A mascara wand is a brush that is used to apply mascara to eyelashes. It comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials to evenly coat lashes from root to tip. Proper wand selection and technique maximize lash volume, definition, and curl based on your lash type. Wands must also be cleaned regularly to prevent bacteria from causing eye infections.

Cleaning your mascara wand regularly helps prevent bacteria growth that can cause eye infections. Here are a few tips for cleaning mascara wands: – Remove excess mascara from the wand by wiping it against the rim of the mascara tube. – Wet a cotton ball or round pad with makeup remover. Gently wipe the wand in an up-and-down motion to remove residue.
