Beauty Tips: How to apply mascara like a pro
Here are some tricks to apply mascara to accentuate your lashes for that flirty and alluring eyes...
(a) The trick to amazing lashes is to use the blackest mascara you have. If your eyelashes are thin, use a volumizing mascara. For short lashes, use a lengthening mascara. I highly recommend Maybelline's Pulse Perfection Mascara for the lengthening effect.
(b) The eyelash curler is an essential beauty tool. Curl lashes with one firm squeeze.
(c) Then dip mascara wand into the tube just ONCE for both upper and lower lashes. Dipping too much mascara onto the wand will cause the mascara in the tube to dry quickly.
(d) To apply the mascara on the upper lashes, place the brush at the lash base and sweep upward to the tips of the lashes, working from the outer corner inward. Remember to add more at the outer corners for that sexy dramatic look.
(e) To pile mascara on lower lashes, sweep lashes from side to side with the tip of the brush, holding the wand vertically.
(f) Use as few strokes as possible to minimize clumping!
To make your lashes stand out more, line your upper waterline with a black liner to give an illusion of even fuller lashes and keep the rest of your make-up light with a faint of lip gloss and blush.
However, if you wish to achieve a face-brightening look, skip the lower lashes altogether.
Do not be shy to use false eyelashes for that extra glamorous effect.
Good luck and have a smashing weekend :)
