Whether you want to lengthen your eyelashes, add color, or increase your lash volume, you need to have the right mascara and know how to apply it properly. Luckily, these mascara tips are sure to help you!
Find Your Color
While we automatically think of black or brown mascara, there are many different shades of it. Depending on what look you are going for, you can find almost any color you want (blue, green, white, pink, yellow, etc.). However, if you are looking for one of the more unique colors, you may need to search online or visit your local cosmetic store.
Pick What You Want the Mascara to Do
Did you know that certain mascaras have specific duties? For example, you can apply mascara to add volume, lengthen your lashes, last for hours, or resist water. Determining your goal will help you pick out what kind of wand you need.
Curl Your Eyelashes
Before applying the mascara, make sure to curl your eyelashes. Curling them will help define, shape, and place your lashes in the same direction. You can achieve this with an eyelash curler that you can find at supermarkets and beauty stores.
Over time, our favorite mascaras dry up and become clumpy. It is inevitable. But enjoy a few more uses by de-clumping the formula with heat. Secure the cap and place the product in warm water. If your wand is older than three months, you are better off replacing it.
Apply Baby Powder
An old trick is to apply talc-free baby powder or translucent powder to your lashes after the first application. Once the powder is on, you brush off the excess and reapply a second coat of mascara. And, before you know it, you will have thick and volumized eyelashes.
Brush Out Clumps
After a thick application, you may have clumpy mascara. Before the mascara dries, use a clean wand to brush these lumps out. This process should only take a few swipes or seconds. If the formula dries, reapply and repeat the process.
