The best way to apply mascara
Ensure that your eyelashes never look dull and basic with this awesome mascara hack. Start with prepping your eyelashes with a few pumps of an eyelash curler. Next, grab your mascara and close one eye. Press the wand against the root of your eyelashes and lightly blink as you wiggle the brush through the lash hair. The force of your lashes blinking against the spoolie will allow them to pick up even more product, which means evenly coated lashes! This technique could get a little messy, but the end result is fuller and thicker lashes which is so worth it.
How to layer the right way
The number of times you need to coat your lashes totally depends on the look you want. Apply only one coat if you want subtle looking lashes. For bigger, thicker, more dramatic lashes you need to layer on two or more coats. But with multiple coats, your lashes run the risk of looking clumpy and spidery. The best way to avoid this is to use different mascara formulas for each layer. For the first layer, start with a thinner formula with a curved brush. This will help separate and define your lashes. Follow it up with a thicker formula and a fuller brush as it will help add volume and length.
How to prevent mascara smudging
Consider yourself extremely blessed if you have naturally long lashes that hit your eyelid or your under-eye area. But long lashes mean smudged mascara! To avoid this problem, start by dusting setting powder in the area where your lashes touch your skin. The powder will help create a barrier while you brush on your mascara and more importantly, will also absorb excess oils that might cause smudging later. Brilliant, right?
Applying mascara on lower lashes
Applying mascara on your bottom lashes makes your eyes look brighter and more open. But if you are not blessed with a ton of lower lashes, let your favourite eyeliner come to your rescue! Create an illusion of a fuller lower lash line with the help of some liquid eyeliner. Using a fine tip liquid liner, draw tiny dots between tiny lash hair along your lash line before applying mascara. Once the marks are in place, wiggle your mascara through your bottom lashes. The combination of the mascara and the dots will give your bottom lashes an instantly fuller effect that looks surprisingly real.
