While applying mascara, do you do it all? Make funny faces to avoid smudge, jiggle the wand to separate the lashes and apply coats and coats of mascara to achieve fluffy lashes? It can be a struggle, we know it. To make it easier for you, we’ve got a few mascara hacks that will help you achieve those baby doll lashes without any falsies coming into the picture. So grab your favourite mascara and get started...
Prep your lashes
Here’s the rule. Just like your face and eyelids, you need to prime your lashes too, to make the mascara last long and avoid stickiness and clumping. Use a lash primer on the lashes to get a natural flutter.
A coat of loose powder
Loose powder can do more things than just giving you a matte finish. It can also give you enviably full lashes. That’s right! Coat your lashes with a translucent powder and then apply mascara. It makes the lasher fluffier and voluminous.
Dry wand trick
Run your lashes through a dry mascara wand to separate the lashes before applying mascara. It makes it easier for the mascara to glide, giving you clump free, long lashes.
Technique is the key
The beauty police would agree with us. The technique is as important as the tool. You need to wiggle and roll the wand on the lashes. For longer lashes, hold the wand vertically and run along the lashes and for curly, dense lashes, roll it horizontally and wiggle a little as you go up.
Do the double approach
Apply one coat of mascara before the eye makeup. Put on another coat after you‘re done with your eye makeup. Mascara works wonders with thin layers rather than one hefty splotch. Taking the first and last approach helps in separating the lashes and removes the risk of clumping. Result: long lasting mascara and gravity-defying lashes!
