Once your mascara is dry, apply a layer of the clear brow gel overtop. This seals the mascara underneath, ensuring that it can't get all over your face.

This means NO MORE RACCOON EYES!

Brow gel can take a second to dry, so make sure you don't open your eyes super-wide to take in all the wonders of the universe, or you might end up with mascara dots on your browbone or — worst of all — under your eyes.

Stare straight ahead for about 30 seconds to a minute to ensure the gel is 100% dry. Make a lot of weird eye contact with your reflection. Think your thoughts. Whatever makes you happy.

This trick has changed my life. I haven't worn mascara on my lower lashes for YEARS because it always smudges off — but not anymore.

I even tested the clear gel hack at the gym, and my mascara stayed immaculate.

Voila! You now have perfectly long, thick, dark eyelashes — and zero fear that you'll look like a raccoon at the end of the day.

The brow gel doesn't add goop or bulk to my lashes — if they get a little clumpy, brush them out a with a clean spoolie or a dedicated lash comb once the gel is dry.

Unlike waterproof mascaras, which you have to scour off your face, the gel-mascara combo comes off easily with makeup remover. For anyone who has delicate under eyes — hello, it me — this is a life-changer.

So you can leave the running mascara to the ~dramatic angels~ of the world.
