Tips For Applying Mascara Like A Makeup Artist

Use an eyelash curler before applying mascara to lift and curl your lashes. This opens up your eyes and creates a more defined look.

1. Curl Your Lashes

Choose a mascara that matches your look. Different mascaras give length, volume, or a natural look. For durability, use waterproof mascara.

2. Choose The Right Mascara

Before applying mascara, wipe off any excess product from the wand on a tissue. This prevents clumps and ensures a more even application.

3. Wipe off Excess Product

Applying a lash primer before mascara can add extra length and volume to your lashes. It also helps the mascara adhere better and last longer.

4. Use A Lash Primer

Instead of one heavy coat, use mascara in thin layers. Avoid clumping by drying each coat before applying the next.

5. Apply Mascara In Layers

While applying mascara, twirl the wand at the base of your lashes. This coats the roots and makes lashes appear bigger.

6. Wiggle The Wand At The Base

Running a clean spoolie brush across your lashes after mascara will separate and remove clumps. This also makes the look more distinct and natural.

7. Use A Clean Spoolie Brush

To enhance a cat-eye or winged eyeliner look, concentrate more mascara on the outer lashes. This elongates the eyes and adds a flattering shape.

8. Focus On The Outer Lashes

Don't forget about your bottom lashes. Use a smaller mascara wand or a lower lash-specific mascara to coat the lower lashes without smudging.

9. Bottom Lashes Matter
