We did a poll recently and it was easy to see that Mascara is the one product that most women just couldn’t live with out! This is because adding mascara to a makeup free face, can totally transform your look. Even if you do not wear a great deal of other eye makeup, mascara has the ability to make your eyes appear larger and more open with just the swipe of a wand. If you are someone who focuses on the beautiful shading and blending of eye shadows, but you do not know how to correctly apply mascara, the look you are going for will fall short. We are going to give you a few helpful tips on how to correctly apply your mascara:
– DO NOT pump your wand in and out of the tube. This will cause your mascara to dry out and leave you with clumpy, flaky lashes! Gently swirls the wand around in your tube in the same motion you would use to unscrew the top. This will coat your brush with enough to get the job done.
-When you remove the wand from the tube, make sure that you scrape off any excess mascara to avoid clumping when you apply.
– Starting with your top lashes or your bottom lashes is completely up to you, although we recommend starting with the bottom lashes first so that you don’t get the tiny dots on your lids from looking down while applying the bottom lashes and still having wet top lashes. When applying to the bottom lashes tilt your head slightly forward to avoid getting makeup on your cheeks (if this doesn’t work for you, you can use a business card or small piece of paper as a barrier), start at the base of the lash line and wiggle your wand to the end of the lash. The wiggle motion lengthens and separates your lashes, giving you a clean finish. For your top lashes you will look straight forward, start towards the inside of corner at the base of your and wiggle your brush outward and upward to the end of the lash. When you get to the outside corner a good trick is to smush the lashes in, and then pull them out with the brush. This coats them and pulls them away from your eye giving you a longer more dramatic look. You may also want to give the top of your lashes one coat of mascara in case there is any residue from the shadow you have applied.
– Lastly, quality mascara is always a good idea. Natural mascaras don’t leave behind a residue coating, which can damage the lashes in the long run. Try our 100% All-Natural Mascarade mascara, which is made with natural Beeswax and organic Carnauba wax. You will definitely notice the difference.
