Could there ever be a beautiful makeup without the eyes? Hell no!
The eyes have always been the centre of all makeups. Every good makeup is definitely the work of the eyes. And now you want to bat those eyes and feel beautiful.
Here are a few tips to help you pull that model look on your natural lashes without stress.
You’ll need the following items:
- Mascara of your choice
- Spoon or a card (placing it with one hand above or below helps to prevent the mascara from smouldering on your skin)
Take the wand as close as possible to the root of the lashes and try not to poke your eyes. So from the root, you wiggle it sideways till you get to the top. The wiggling prevents it from getting clumps because it really separates the hairs of the lashes.
After that, focus on the edges and stroke it upwards until you get a good finish. Now do the same for the lower eyelid by simply stroking downwards.
Since the tip of the lashes is the thinnest, you might want to give it some weight so they can be visible. It makes your lashes look a lot longer because you’ve built some mascara on them.
At intervals pull back from the mirror to see if you have reached your goal.
If you have short lashes, you may want to buy the skinny brush. It ensures the lashes are coated from root to tip making them more defined and longer. It’s also good at separating the hair of the lashes.
You can use the jumbo wand. The good thing about it is that it does not only give you thickness and volume, but it also takes lesser time to apply.
The traditional shaped bristle brush is a good option. It gives your lashes volume, fullness and makes it fluttery. The traditional shaped plastic also gives volume. Another good thing is that it gives more definition and less clumping.
No matter your choice of brush, you can always coat it twice or at most thrice (and allow each coat to dry off before the next) to get a fuller outlook.
Give this a try and thank me afterwards.
