Do you want more tips or are you starting to us it? Read here all about the do’s and don’ts for mascara.
For the die hard make up users I don’t have to explain but lets start at the beginning. When you do your make up make sure you have a proper mirror. Whether it’s a huge bathroom mirror or a small handheld one, it depends on what’s comfortable for you. The light is most important. It’s best to do your make up in fake light which shines to your face (not on your head coming form above). Day light is the worst because it can easily result into too much make up.
take your time
When you’re a first time mascara user or you use it only occasionally then make sure you take your time. Is your hand not as steady as you’d like it be then work at a desk or table so that your elbow can rest and you have a stable position. Start with the eye on the side of your writers hand. This is often the easiest one, best to start with. When you take out the brush from the mascara then clean the edge by smearing it along the opening.
how to apply
Keep the brush horizontal, aligned to your eye. Place the brush onto your upper eyelashes, as close ss possible to your eyelid. Take your time and work gently, don’t poke your eye! Slide the brush upwards and work your way from the inside towards the outside of the eye. Make sure to apply it on all hairs. Most people do a zig zag motion which causes the hairs to go deeper into the brush for more effect. When you are applying the mascara make sure to position the eyelashes straight and divided. When needed use the end of the brush. The next move is to brush along the top side of the upper eyelashes, this one is tough. Make sure to be gently so that the lashes don’t position downwards. If it’s difficult to brush it then use the end of the brush. Repeat the fist step once make and brush all lashes upwards. This is also your second layer. Don’t forget the bottom lashes. Again keep the brush straight aligned to your eye. Brush downwards. Use the tip of the brush to re position the hairs to make them straight. All done!
“Practice makes perfect. You have to find your own method. The most important is to work on clean eyes and lashes. Make sure the make up of the previous day is completely rinsed off. Also your mascara brush should be clean. Make sure you’re the only one who’s using this brush to prevent eye infection.”
Tip do you have little lumps on your lashes then use a cotton swab with a little Vaseline on it and swipe it gently along the lumps to remove them
Tip did you spil some mascara on your eyelid? Wait until the mascara dries up (several minutes) and then swipe it off with a dry cotton swab.
Tip Mascara stains on your clothing can be removed with some warm water and soap.
When your lashes don’t curl by their own then you could use a lash curler. These are not expensive at all and you can buy them at any make up store. Make sure to read how this is done. Also make sure to add the given rubber protection on the ends of the curler to avoid cutting off your lashes.
Waterproof mascara does really work. When you have teary eyes, going to an emotional event or like to walk through the rain then this is the right solution. It appears that waterproof mascara is better for allergic eyes. Most mascaras which aren’t tested on animals are mostly waterproofs only.
