The most crucial tip in applying mascara is to prepare the eyelashes properly before starting the application. Brush the eyelashes gently but vertically. This helps prevent streaks and gives the eyelashes a thicker appearance. Some women prefer brushing their eyelashes after applying the mascara. It is also essential to clean the eyelash brush before starting the application. Make sure that you use a clean brush, not a used one.
Wispier, Denser Bristles
When applying Mascara by Tarte Cosmetics, use the wand with more extended, denser bristles. These bristles cover lashes better, and they don’t poke your eye. If you don’t like the feel of longer bristles, you can opt for a mascara with shorter, denser bristles. The curved wand will add volume and length to your bottom lashes while not pricking your eyes.
The’ out-up method for applying mascara has popped up on the TikTok scene. This method makes it easier to space out the lashes on the eyelid, making the entire area appear more expansive. The ‘out-up-in’ process begins at the outer corner of the eye, and you pull the lashes up and in with the mascara wand’s tip.
Using A Different Mascara For Lower Lashes
Using mascara on your lower lashes than your upper lashes can dramatically increase your eye makeup game. The lower lashes are fragile and require a precise brush to achieve the perfect application. You can find a mascara with a unique applicator, like Chanel, with a wand-shaped wand. The difference in the formula makes the application easier.
Avoiding Brushing On Mascara
To create the voluminous, dark effect, apply mascara first on the upper lashes. Brushing over the lower lashes will weigh them down and make a spidery effect. To avoid this effect, apply the mascara at the root of the lashes, lifting them away from the tips. When applying mascara to the bottom lashes, use a tissue to prevent smudging. This helps to define each lash while also distributing the dark mascara pigment evenly. Once you’ve finished the first eye, move on to the next and, if desired, the lower lid lashes.
Using A Zig-Zag Motion
If you use a zig-zag motion when applying mascara, you’ll have longer, thicker lashes and a more dramatic appearance overall. However, when you apply more than one coat of mascara, you must comb your lashes in between each coat. Applying your mascara in a zig-zag motion will ensure that your lashes are coated evenly and don’t clump.
Color Of Choice For Mascara
Most of us associate colored mascara with trendy colors. While vibrant shades look great on brown or blue eyes, muted colors will brighten a dull eye. Consider the varying color of your lashes, and try a dark shade if you have a darker lash color. It may be worth experimenting with different colors for a different effect. Listed below are a few of our favorites:
Coating The Lashes
Most women don’t realize how often they need to coat their lashes when applying mascara. This is because most formulas cover only the bottom of the lashes. So, before you apply the mascara, you should first brush the wand up the top of the upper lashes. Then, work your way down. This way, you won’t weigh down your lashes. However, if you want dramatic, full lashes, you might use more than one coat. If you’re still getting clumps, it’s possible you’re not waiting long enough between applications of mascara. Allow each to dry completely (about 30 seconds to a minute) before moving on to the next.
