Tired of black raccoon eyes caused by mascara migration? Try makeup expert Trish McEvoy's smudge-proofing tips.
Question: "Is there any way to keep mascara from smudging?"

Answer: The newest formulas contain a lot of polymers -the ingredient that helps mascara bond to your lashes. If you're still experiencing smudging, residual oils from products may be to blame. Before applying mascara, make sure treatments like moisturizer and eye cream have been totally absorbed.
