There’s nothing like mascara to create instantly flirty eyes. Here’s some tips to make the most out of your bottle of mascara.
Choose a Small Brush
For really natural looking lashes, choose a mascara with a smaller brush and a thin formula, so it glides on smoothly and lightly.
Apply to Top Lashes
Apply mascara to the top lashes only. This gives subtle definition without looking “done.” Just a quick swipe across the upper lashes, and you’re done!
Choose a Big Brush
Use a big, spooly brush, which gets to every lash and loads on the product.
Applying to Lower Lashes
Don’t smudge your mascara: It’s all about a plastic spoon. You just want to hold it underneath the lower lash line and then start sweeping the mascara right onto the lashes. The mascara won’t clump or smudge on your skin, but go directly on the plastic spoon.
Applying to Upper Lashes
Allow lower lashes to dry before you work on the upper lash line. Dip your brush one more time so it’s well coated. Lift up your eyelid a bit so you can get right to the base of the upper lashes, then wiggle the brush and sweep it up to the tips. For extra volume, hold the wand vertically and sweep it back and forth.
How to De-Clump
When lashes get clumpy, all you need is a metal lash comb. Be sure to use the comb while the lashes are still wet, and carefully comb through them to separate and define each lash.
Use The Right Curler:
Mascara can be tricky, but not if you have the right tools. First, don’t use a traditional eyelash curler, but rather a small corner or sectional curler. They can get closer and work section by section making the curl last longer and ensuring that each lash is touched.
