One of the few things that you need to pay attention to when creating your look is your eyelashes. Getting great lashes is enough to give you that wide eyed and awake look. The popular no makeup look mostly consists of a perfect base and great lashes.
Not all of us are given thick and luscious lashes. The only thing we can do to get those lashes is simply by faking it. False eyelashes, plumping mascaras and eyelash extensions. Below are some great tips and tricks for your eyelashes!
Get an extra mascara wand or disposable mascara wand and bend it at the tip just before the brush. Take your mascara product and spread it on the bent mascara brush. Return the original wand in the tube and use the bent one to apply. Bending your brush can help you be more in control with application and help push up the tiny hairs upward giving you that light curl. This can also help you get those tiny little hairs in the corner of your eyes without messing you r makeup. You can use your original wand and bend it, but this can make it prone to breaking since you have to straighten it every time you return it inside the tube.
Wipe It Off
When mascara gets too much oxygen in the tube, the product will tend to be tacky and in clumps. This will leave you with a clumpy and uneven application. You can prevent this by taking a clean facial tissue and rolling the want around it before application. Remove the excess products or clumps on the wand before applying. Repeat this process for all the layers.
Go For Uneven
No one wants to get uneven looking lashes, but when you get perfectly coated the lashes tend to beweighed down. This will make your curls unravel in just a few hours after ap plication. You can prevent this and get longer lasting curls by creating an uneven but full coat. Start your application from the base of your lashes and pack most of the volume here. This will give the illusion of thicker and fuller lashes without putting too much product. Make your hands side to side to spread the product and do one swift swipe on the tips of your lashes.
Make Mascara Last Longer
Waterproof mascaras are great for holding curls and keeping your eye makeup smear free throughout the day, but it is one of the hardest product to remove. You prevent aggressive removal later on by applying a first coat of waterproof mascara, then following it with normalmascara and finishing it with a thin coat of waterproof mascara. The waterproof formula can help keep the shape of the lashes and make it last longer.
Once mascara becomes too clumpy to apply, using it can be too much of a hassle. You can revive old and clumpy mascara by dipping it in hot water. Take a cup of hot water and soak your mascara tube in it for a few minutes. This will help melt down the clumps in your mascara and make it easier to apply. Before doing this check the expiration date at the bottom of the tube.
Mascara usually lasts up to three months after you open it. If you exceed the due date, throw it away to prevent getting an eye infection.
