 5 near-genius mascara hacks every girl should know

We read somewhere: Inner beauty is great, but a little mascara never hurts.

Mascara is that magic wand that every girl uses to make her eyes look instantly bigger and lashes, on fleek. Mascara can make or break your look and that’s why you need to get your hands on one that does the job right.

Our current favourite is the new Lakmé Eyeconic Volume Mascara. It’s enriched with all-star ingredients like calendula extracts and castor oil, both of which are known to care for your lashes. Not only does this Lakmé mascara provide oodles of volume and fullness to your lashes, but also lasts for up to eight hours without smudging. Here are some near-genius mascara hacks that will help you make the most of your product.



01. Dust translucent powder on your lashes

One of the best tricks we picked from numerous YouTube videos is dusting some translucent powder on your lashes to add volume to them. Before applying mascara, just dust some translucent powder on your lashes. Make sure to apply only a thin layer of powder and then, go ahead and coat your lashes with mascara. If you want more volume, wait for the first coat to dry and repeat the same steps.



02. Use a clean spoolie to prevent clumping

Don’t you just hate it when your mascara gets all clumped up and ruins the entire look? We do too, and that’s why we suggest trying out this amazing hack. It’s pretty simple; after you apply your mascara, swipe a spoolie along your lashes. This will help separate your lashes and pick up all the extra product that causes clumping. Neat, right?



03. Use the wiggle-n-swipe technique

The easiest way to enhance your lashes is by simply switching your old mascara with a volume-enhancing one. Swap your regular mascara with the Lakmé Eyeconic Volume Mascara. This water-resistant mascara adds oodles of volume to your lashes and won’t budge for up to eight hours. With just a single swipe, you’ll get the voluminous, fluttery eyelashes of your dreams!


04. Use the wiggle-n-swipe technique

It’s pretty simple: instead of the usual upward strokes, try wiggling your wand around the root and then swipe it upwards. This will help add volume to your lashes around the roots and coat every lash to enhance and make it appear longer.



05. Clean your mascara wand

The leftover mascara on your wand can cause your lashes to clump and dry out faster. That’s why the simplest and easiest way to make sure you make the most of your mascara is by cleaning the wand before using it. Use a tissue to remove any excess product before dunking the mascara wand back into the tube and sweeping it over your lashes.
