There’s a reason mascara is the one beauty product most makeup artist say you should never leave home without. With a wink or a glance your lashes can say a lot. But if you weren’t born with long lush lashes, not to worry. With the right mascara formula, good technique and a few tricks you’ll have long, full, flirty lashes in no time.
The right stuff. Mascara comes in many formulas. So take a good look at your lashes, do you want fullness, length, or both? Knowing what look you want is the first start. If your natural lashes are shorter, try using a mascara that has a curling formula. It will make your lashes lift!
- A full row. Adding volume to your lashes is easy. When it comes to technique, hold the wand horizontally at the base of your lashes. As you begin to move the wand through your lashes, wiggle the wand back and forth. This allows more mascara to coat the base of your lashes adding volume.
- Before applying mascara, dust a translucent powder over your lashes. This will add thickness to your lashes.
- To make lashes look longer, be certain to coat lashes all the way to the very tip of your lashes.
Tip: Don’t pump, twirl! To make mascara last longer, avoid pumping the wand up and down, it actually allows air into the product causing it to dry out faster. Instead twirl the pump to saturate the wand with mascara.
Note: To keep your eyes healthy and beautiful remember, mascara needs to be replaced every 8 to 12 weeks.
