How to Master Lashes Like An Expert!For many a celebrity, there's not a beauty-enhancing product more
essential than mascara. It opens your eyes and brings depth to those
irises—all with only a few swipes.To be frank, often times, it’s less about the brand and much more
about the applicator. Although, I will say that I tend to prefer smoother
mascara over a creamy one because those tend to clump more and
they also feel heavy on the lashes. Read on to discover my signature feathery, bright-eyed look.
Let's Get Started
I recommend a lengthening mascara. The applicator should not have any densely packed bristles. Apply one coat of mascara to clean lashes wiggling the brush upwards from the base of
the lash. Be sure to coat all of your lashes once, but double-up on the
center lashes. Using the same mascara coat the back of your lashes dragging upwards from mid-lash to tip — hold your mascara at a vertical angle and focus on the outer lashes, dragging your mascara wand outward from the base. You want to be sure that your outer lashes are as separated as possible. Focus on the lashes on the inner corners of your eyes and repeat the steps above, hold your arm at a 90 degree angle keeping your mascara wand parallel to the floor and run the wand over the tips of your lashes. Coat your bottom lashes with a single coat of mascara, dragging the wand from mid-lash to tip. Avoid touching the base of the lash to keep your lower lash line clean. New Trick: To make your eyelashes look even thicker a trick is to apply a coat of black eyeliner to the upper waterline of your eyes. To do this, pull up your lashes just a bit, and run the black eyeliner on the top of the inner waterline. To give it more staying power, dip your eyeliner pencil in Devezin Cosmetics black waterproof gel eyeliner and line the waterline. Even though
this is a subtle difference, the black base it creates automatically
gives the appearance of thicker, fuller lashes.
Never the pump: Many think pumping the wand in and
out of the mascara tube will garner more product on the bristles. At the
same time, however, pumping it allows more air to enter the tube and
can dry out your mascara more quickly.
Instead, gently twist the wand from side to side while it's in the tube
to pick up product without aerating the product.
An addition to the lashes: Make your mascara
multitask. You can also use mascara as an eyeliner by simply applying
it to the lash-line with an eyeliner brush.
Beware: Prevent the spread of bacteria by replacing your makeup products every three months.
Your fuller, thicker lashes are just a few brush strokes away! I hope
