Your eyes define the rest of the features of your face. They are the most important when it comes to looking beautiful. Mascaras make your eyes look deep and detailed. Choose the right type of mascara for the occasion or the time of day. Lengthening, thickening, long wearing, conditioning and waterproof are some of the options available. Make sure to finish other eye makeup before using mascara.
Most women curl their lashes with an eyelash curler before applying mascara. If you are using a metal curler, then you can heat it with a blow dryer for few seconds. Make sure it's not too heated to harm your eyes. Make sure to grab all hairs when placing it near the lash line. Hold it for about ten seconds and release. You do not have to try and curl the lower lashes as they are too short to be curled. One important thing is to make sure that your lashes are not coated with mascara before curling, because it may damage and break the lashes.
Take out the brush from the tube in one easy twirl and pull. Do not pump it as more air will flow into the bottle causing the mascara to dry up quickly. It will also allow bacteria and fungus to develop in the bottle and the brush. Gently rub the end tip of the applicator on the inside rim of the bottle to get the excess mascara off.
From the underside of the upper lashes sweep the brush upwards to the tips. Roll the brush in upward strokes, holding the brush parallel to the eye. While the lashes are wet, use an eyelash comb to separate the lashes, before they stick together. If you see excess mascara, blot them on a tissue paper. Allow the first coat to dry before applying the second. When doing your lower lashes, stroke them downwards and sometimes holding the applicator vertical to do them bit by bit. To remove any smudges use a cotton bud with eye makeup remover.
To add more detail and volume to make your lashes stand out, after the application process when the lashes are dry, apply mascara just to the tip of the upper lashes and comb. It is advisable that you do all your eye makeup in front a mirror, seated and comfortable than in a hurry or while in a vehicle. This may cause damages to your eye and won't bring out favourable results from your makeup.
