Want to hear our TOP 8 TIPS for getting lashes for days? Need some help with how to stop getting panda eyes when you do your makeup? We'd guesstimate about 80% of our clients vote MASCARA as a must when rushing out the door with only 5 minutes to get ready. The difference mascara can make to your look is nothing short of AMAZING. All of a sudden- HELLO EYES!👉👁👁👈 Yet many of us don't take the time to properly apply it, or even wear it at all because it can be SO damn MESSY - kinda counterintuitive to getting ready quickly!!
As a makeup artist I'm constantly hearing from women who have a love/ hate relationship with mascara, so I'm here to give you my top tips for perfect mascara application every time.
BEHOLD- our TOP 8 TIPS! ⚡️CURL your lashes first- it only takes 30 seconds & ensures they're at their most lifted, meaning you don't have to put as much mascara on. And it's less messy putting mascara on curled lashes.
⚡️BEND the mascara wand to make it easier to control and apply to your lashes. The wands are flexible so it's easy to do. ⚡️TILT your head back just sightly when applying, and look DOWN to your chin.
⚡️WIGGLE the mascara wand right into the roots of your lash to get all the colour in at the base (bonus: you won't stab yourself in the eye if looking down) Once you've wiggled product into the roots, pull the wand up and through your lashes, distributing the mascara through. ⚡️Don't OVERLOAD your wand. You'll get clumpy lashes applying too much at once. You can always add a second coat after the first.
⚡️WAIT for your top lashes to dry before doing the bottom lashes. Turn your wand on its side & comb it through lightly using the point of the wand. ⚡️TOSS mascara every 3 months or so. It goes thick & harbours bacteria from expsoure to air. Gross. ⚡️ I like to buy a travel size of my faves, like the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, because it will run out faster & I'm not tempted to hold on to it. Do you you have any tips we haven't shared here? What's your mascara secret weapon?
