How do I prevent eyeshadow/foundation from getting on my lash tips?

I recently started using Benefit's They're Real Mascara. This makes my lashes so long that they touch my eyelids!!! I love it, but now I always end up with either my eyeshadow or on foundation on the tips of my lashes. What's the point of applying a gorgeous, black mascara if the tips of my lashes end up beige?! Not hot.


Any suggestions to keep my shadow on my lids & off my lashes? I already use a shadow primer & mascara application is the last step in my makeup routine after setting powder & shadow application so it's not a fallout issue. Thanks for your help!

I agree with the previous post. I would also be careful when you're setting your makeup not to get too much product on the brush and to use a flat brush to place product. This will prevent applying too much product causing your lashes to have powder all over.
