There are mascara tips every woman should know to help mascara application easier. Here are some game-changing mascara tips and hacks that will make your lashes appear voluminous, thicker, and full of life.
Tip 1: Coat Both Sides of Your Lashes
If you have only been applying mascara on the outer side of your lashes, you’ve been doing it wrong. You have to coat both sides of your lashes for a fuller look. Most people coat one side of their lashes. Always coat both sides og the lashes this way your lashes will always look glam and thicker.
Tip 2: Bend the Brush
Bend your brush so you can get a vertical angle so that it forms some sort of letter L. It may be painful to bend a new brush, but we promise it’s going to change your mascara game. This is a great mascara tio and some companies have even started incorporating a bending brush in their mascara. This makes sure the mascara reaches the tiny corner of your eye. You can always bend it back when you’re done.
Tip 3: Mascara Collection
You will need more than one mascara in your arsenal. You need a volumizing mascara, lengthening mascara, curling mascara, waterproof mascara, and clear mascara. These mascaras will make your eyes pop. You can start with a lengthening mascara, then go to a curling mascara then finish it off with a volumizing mascara. You can also invest in a bottom lash mascara to make it easier for application and to make them pop. You can also have colored mascara.
Tip 4: Size matters
When it comes to applying mascara, size matters. The size of the brush really does matter. You should use skinny brushes for the shorter lashes because they can penetrate right in. So if you generally have short lashes you should invest in a skinny brush.
Tip 5: Fresh Mascara
If you want to avoid clamps, avoid using old mascara. If your mascara is starting to dry up, you can try adding some warm water to help remove the clumps that may have formed or soak your tube of mascara in hot water. You should try and replace your mascara every 3 months depending on how often you use it. Also when disposing of mascara, you can choose to remain with the brush and reuse it. If you get clumps accidentally, you can always use a toothbrush to remove them.
Tip 6: Zigzag motion
When applying mascara, don’t do it in a straight line. Do it in a zig-zag motion. This prevents clumps and eyelashes from sticking together.
Tip 7 : Lubricate your lashes
This is also another overlooked mascara hack. You should lubricate your lashes so that the mascara application becomes easier. You should also not over-lubricate your lashes. If you have a heavy hand just make sure you apply your lubricant the night before. You can use petroleum jelly or a moisturizer of your choice.
Tip 8: Curling your lashes
Before applying mascara, curl your lashes. Use a warm eyelash curler to ensure your curls remain curled longer. If you’re using false eyelashes you can hold a blow dryer on a warm setting, to keep the lashes curled all day. After curling your lashes you can now apply your mascara for a fuller look.
Tip 9: Protect your face
When applying mascara on your lower lashes, be very careful not to get some on your face. You can use a tissue just to protect your cheeks. The mascara might ruin your makeup.
Tip 10: Powder
This is one of the oldest tricks in the book. After applying one layer of mascara apply a coat of baby powder on your lashes using a cotton bud. This may sound risky, especially if you’ve already applied your makeup. Just be sure not to overdo the baby powder. After you apply the baby powder, add another coat of mascara for your lashes to look voluminous.
Tip 11: Focus on the tips
After you’re done applying mascara, be sure to focus on the tips of your lashes. This will make them more voluminous. Just be sure to do it lightly.
