Mascara Hacks That Will Up Your Eye Makeup Game
Heat The Lash Curler
Eyelash curlers are essential to mascara application and heating your lash curler will ensure the curl will hold for much longer. Just hold a blow dryer over the top of your curler for around 10 to 15 seconds.
Credit Card Hack
Being messy with mascara is normal, especially if you have shaky hands. Avoid making a mess by using a credit card or piece of paper to create a boundary between your skin and lashes during application.
Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle
The best way to get long, clump-free lashes is with the wiggle trick. Start from the base of your lashes and push up in a wiggling motion, moving the wand slightly back and forth giving you the longest, most-separated lashes possible.
Expiration Date
Using expired makeup will downgrade your eye game, as it most likely will be too dry and clumpy to work, and can possibly even cause an infection. The FDA recommends mascara be thrown out three months after purchase.
Change Angles
Changing your brush angle can change your whole look. As beauty expert Brooke Shunatona explains, “Holding the brush horizontally and wiggling it back and forth will give you voluminous lashes while holding it vertically and running the tip of the brush along the length of your lashes will leave you with a longer, more natural look.”
Use Tweezers
If you want iconic spider lashes like the model Twiggy, use the tip of a spoolie to lightly coat your bottom lashes. Then apply mascara to the tips of your tweezers, and use the tweezers to clump sections of your lashes together from corner to corner.
