Mascara is one game-changing makeup product that every girl needs in her vanity. Irrespective of whether you are creating a nighttime smokey eye or going for an every day no-makeup makeup look, completing your eye makeup with some mascara will accentuate your eyes and take the look several notches higher.

But despite being commonly used, a lot of women tend to misapply it, resulting in spidery, clumpy lashes. Sailing in the same boat? You’ve come to the right place. Scroll down for a step-by-step tutorial on how to apply mascara for on-fleek lashes.

How to apply mascara: Step-by-step guide for on-fleek lashes

Mascara should always be the last step in your eye makeup routine. Therefore, always finish applying eyeshadow, eyeliner and kajal before moving on to the steps mentioned below.

How to apply mascara: Step-by-step guide for on-fleek lashes

Step 01: After you’ve finished applying the rest of your eye makeup, go ahead and curl your lashes. Warm (don’t heat) the curler with your hairdryer, place it as close to the lash line as possible and gently clamp the lashes. Repeat the same process on to the mid-lengths and then the tips for perfect, gravity-defying curls.

Step 02: Comb your lashes using a lash comb to separate each lash and add some length. You can even apply some eyelash primer if you aren’t using a waterproof formula or have watery eyes.


Step 03: Next, take the Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara and wipe off any excess product to avoid clumping. Now, look up and place the wand as close to your lower lash line as possible and pull it upwards in a wiggling motion. This will ensure that each lash is perfectly coated in mascara.

Step 04: If you want something more dramatic or simply like thicker and fuller lashes, you can layer the curling mascara with a volumising mascara like the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara. Using different mascara formulations give you better results and make those peepers pop.
