Beauty School: How to Apply Mascara Like a Pro
Hello my lovelies. I am back with another beauty school series!
Mascara, mascara, mascara .. some like 'em some fear it and some just couldn't be bothered. I used to go without mascara thinking that it won't make a difference in my eye look. Boy, was I wrong! So now I slap on my mascara for a bigger looking eyes. Read on and learn to apply mascara like a pro! :p
As the saying goes “ the eyes are the windows to one’s soul”. That makes the eyes the most important part of the face therefore it is important for us women to know how to dress up our eyes when going out. Putting on mascara is the easiest way to do that as it lengthens and enhances the look of your lashes, making your eyes look more open. So, how to apply the mascara like a pro? Let me take you through three very simple steps J
Step 1: Curl you lashes with an eyelash curler.
Yes, the game changer lies in the eyelash curler! Never underestimate the effect an eyelash curler can do to your eye look. Begin by curling the lashes by clamping it as close to your lash line. Do be careful not to clamp your skin as you do this J. Hold it for 10 seconds. Release it and repeat the process at half way up your lashes. This will give you a dramatic curve that would really open up your eyes.
Step 2: Apply mascara …. like a pro!
Gently twist open your mascara ( NEVER pump the wand in and out of the tube as this will push air into the tube and dries out your mascara solution prematurely that causes you to have clumps when applied to the lashes ), and wipe off the excess from the tip of the spooly before applying it onto your lashes. That way you will get just the right amount of mascara without it looking clumpy. Start from the roots, wiggle it to separate your lashes then pull it out to the tip of your lashes. Yes! The secret is to wiggle at the roots. Wiggling the spooly will coat each lashes better making them look thicker.
Step 3: Apply more than two coats of mascara
Yes! You can apply more than two coats of mascara to further lengthen and enhance the look of your lashes. Of course that depends on the formula of your mascara. The more liquidy the formula, the more you can layer. The key is to NOT wait for the mascara to completely dry before applying your second and third coat to avoid clumpy or flaky eye look.
That’s it ladies. You are done. Easy peasy! I hope this post will motivate you to perk up your lashes for bigger looking eyes. Don’t like waterproof mascara? Choose non-waterproof formula like I do J
