Are you the type that refuse to step out of the house without wearing mascara? Or are you the one who is naturally blessed with long lashes and mascara makes you look prettier? Or are you scared and do not know how to apply mascara? Either ways here are a few tips for you that will help you get going.
Tips To Apply Mascara
First finish the application of all the rest of your eye make-up (eyeliner eye shadow etc). Then tie your hair before applying so that hair strands do not come in between when you are applying mascara and smudge it. Finally,take a hand mirror and put it down on the bed then look down and apply. This way you will get the best and full view of your lashes.
Turn the wand at the root of the lashes and then pull them through the lashes. Then remove any extra lumps by closing your eyes and pulling the wand though the base of the lashes.You may also use lash combs to prevent clumping or even rub off the excess mascara from the wand (please do not use ones that have become worn out) before applying it to your lashes. Wet lashes also prevent clumping.
Another thing to keep in mind is how wide you want your eyes to look. Unless you want them to look really wide, apply mascara only on the top lashes.Lastly after the application of mascara, do wait for a few seconds before you decide to blink. Else you will have black dots on your eyelids!
Picking The Right Mascara For Yourself
Before you buy mascara you need to know what you are buying it for. For example would you be using it during a pool party? Then it’s best to use a waterproof one. Or are you planning to participate in a friend’s fashion show? Then opt for one that will add length to your lashes. Or are your lashes too thin? Then go for a lash thickening mascara.
