Last night i brough this topic up to my mom and asked her if she put her mascara on with her mouth open and closed. I told her that i know most women cant put on mascara unless there mouth is wide open but i dont seem to do that i jsut keep my mouth closed and put it on. Do you open your mouth while putting mascara on?

I noticed it long time ago, and frankly, it is quite funny. I just can't let others would have seen my mouth opening to put my mascara on, so I put on my mascara with my mouth closed. It is not a difficult at all.

This is great... We all do this at one time or another, I sometimes have to remember to stop myself... Because i'm saying wtf, close your mouth lol. I think maybe its in our minds that if we open our mouth our eyes will open wider. who knows... :]

Yeah thats a thought, even i put on mascara with my mouth closed, but most of frendz dnt. Once my frend was puttin on mascara with her mouth open, and i remind her to close it, she tries her level best, and still her mouth opens, the next time, she says she will try even harder. I see her mouth still open, but her lips together covering her mouth.LOL!

I actually noticed that before and trained myself to close my mouth. Now I don't open my mouth anymore when I put on my mascara. I think it's trainable *laughs*.

For me it depends. I'll catch myself with my mouth open and think to myself why is my mouth open when I am doing this and "correct" myself by closing it. I have noticed the same thing with women and I believe they even had something on tv at some point about it as well. I would say it had something to with muscles but then again when you see makeup artist doing a female's makeup they don't have their mouth open applying nor is the female's mouth open when its being applied.
