The best way to apply mascara
Ensure that your eyelashes never look dull and basic with this awesome mascara hack. You always need to start with curling your lashes. Next, take the mascara and start from the root of your lashes and lightly blink as you apply. Use a wiggling motion instead of just going bakwards and forwards. The wiggling motion along with the lashes blinking will ensure that your lashes pick up a lot more product and are ger evenly coated.
How to layer the right way
The number of coats you apply really just depends on the kind of look you want to achieve. If you want a simple, subtle look, a single coat will be more than enough. But if you are going for something more dramatic, you may need to apply more than two coats. But this could make your eyelashes look spidery and clumpy. To avoid this, coat the first layer with a thin formula and use a curved brush to separate and fan out your lashes. Next, use a thicker formula with a fuller brush to give it the desired length and volume.
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.
