Get ready to prevent clumps, make your mascara last longer, and more! Check out these tricks for getting the most out of this beauty product. There’s more to applying and using mascara than just swiping it on your eyelashes, guys.
- Eyelash Curler could do wonders
Curling your eyelashes before applying mascara can help give your lashes a boost.
- Allow coats to fully dry before applying more
You’re probably late and are rushing out the door and want to apply another coat of mascara as soon as possible – but if you do so right after applying the first coat you just might lose your curl. You should always wait a few seconds before applying the second coat for the thickest, most voluptuous lashes.
- Apply mascara from root to tip
To build length and volume in your lashes start from the base of your lashes and wiggle the wand through the tip.
- Coat both sides of your lashes
Apply mascara from root to tip first on the tops of your lashes, then repeat on the bottom.
- Wipe excess mascara off your wand before applying
Rub your wand over the mascara bottle’s opening before applying, so as to not waste mascara. A fully saturated mascara wand makes precise application difficult.
- Don’t pump your wand
This is one common mistake done by most of us. Don’t keep pumping your mascara wand in and out of the bottle in order to get more mascara on the wand, you’ll let air into the bottle which will eventually dry your mascara.
- Replace it every 3 to 6 months
Mascara’s tend to lose their moisture and dry up. It’s advisable to buy a new one then so as to get the perfect results.
- Give brown mascara a chance
“Brown mascara plays up lighter eye color – it’s a trick Bette Davis swore by.” Plus it can multitask to define brown eyebrows. So go ahead and give it a chance, guys.
