2 Things To Do With Mascara Wands

1. Re-use them. Have you ever bought a mascara with a crappy formula but had a great wand? Toss the tube when it's finished and use the wand with another mascara formula! Make sure to clean the wands before each use. If you've ever seen or been "behind the scenes" at a makeup shoot, you'll notice artists use disposable wands. So, if you're practicing makeup on friends, having clean tools is essential. Did you know mascara is the worst cosmetic product to share? Read my article on why you shouldn't share mascara.

2. Return them. Companies like MAC Cosmetics have a recycling program. This program is pretty cut and dry where if you return six MAC primary packaging containers to either a MAC counter or online, then you will score a free MAC lipstick of your choice. This is their way of thanking you for helping them keep our planet "green". I think it's a pretty good deal!
