How To Make Sure Your Mascara Goes the Extra Mile
We all use it. Some of us never leave home without it. But here are some nifty hacks to make sure your eyes pop!
Get ready to prevent clumps, easily apply false lashes, make your mascara last longer, and heaps, heaps more.
Wipe off excess mascara on a tissue to prevent clumps. A brand new bottle of mascara can transfer a lot of extra product on the wand for the first few uses, causing clumpy lashes. So before your first coat, glide the brush over a napkin or tissue to remove any excess formula.
Keep your lashes curled longer by wiggling the brush back and forth at the base of your lashes, and then swiping to the tips. If you coat your lashes evenly, it will weigh down the tips of the hairs, causing your lashes to straighten out after a few minutes. The best way to hold a curl is to apply a thicker coat of mascara at the root of your lashes and a lighter one toward the ends. You can achieve this by wiggling the wand back and forth at the base, and then lightly combing through to the tips.
Layer waterproof mascara on top of your regular formula to make your mascara last longer and make it easier to remove at the end of the day. Waterproof formula is great at holding curl and keeping your mascara from smearing throughout the day, but because it's so difficult to remove, try applying your normal mascara first and finishing with a coat of waterproof.
Heat your eyelash curler with a blow-dryer so your lashes curl more easily and hold the shape longer. Blow warm air onto the lash curler with your blow-dryer until it heats up, wait until it cools slightly (test the warmth on the back of your hand first to make sure it won't burn you), and then curl your lashes as normal. This trick creates curled lashes the same way curling your hair with a curling iron does.
To easily remove false lashes, place a cotton ball soaked in eye makeup remover on top of the eyelid for a few seconds to loosen the glue. Instead of pulling the strips off, which tugs at delicate eye skin and might even pull out your real lashes, soak a cotton ball in oil-free eye makeup remover and then hold it over your eye for 20 seconds. This will loosen the glue and the strip, making it much easier to remove.
