BY: CLAIRE – DAYS [DAYS SINCE Today] AGO
Do you ever wish that your eyelashes were more pronounced, thicker, and more voluminous? Regardless whether you’re putting on your daytime or nighttime makeup look; mascara should always be a part of your makeup routine. It can completely transform your lashes and make them fuller and accentuated. Not to mention it brings out your eyes and draws attention to your face.
But how to apply mascara like a pro and make your eyelashes perfect?
Well, there are many mascara tricks you can use to accentuate your eyes and I’m going to cover the most important ones. So if you want to learn how to apply mascara like a pro, don’t miss out on this article!
Pick the right mascara
The first step to getting those luscious lashes to accentuate your eyes is to pick the right mascara. There are hundreds of different mascara brands and it’s often hard to choose the best one. All of them advertise longer, fuller, and more voluminous lashes. But let’s be honest, that’s often not the case.
There are many mascaras, both cheaper and expensive ones, that really don’t do the job and leave you with lumps on your lashes, or to put it simply, a huge mess, no matter how good your application technique is.
That’s why it’s imperative to choose a good, high-quality mascara.
I recommend that you try Xlash Mascara. I’ve been using it for months and it is hands down one of the best mascaras I have tried so far. It doesn’t make your lashes stick together but actually makes them longer and voluminous. It is very versatile and can be used for many different looks, which I love.
Different Wand Types
As you know, different mascaras come with different wand types. You would be surprised how much the mascara wand affects the application of mascara. That’s why I recommend that you try a curved wand as the one Xlash Mascara comes with.
I have found it to be the best wand shape for perfect mascara application.
Mascaras also come in a lot of different colours. But although experimenting with unusual mascara shades can be very fun, I suggest that you stick with classic black for most of your looks. Xlash is a carbon black mascara which I have found is perfect for accentuating your eyes. If you are blonde, a brown mascara might look more natural on you.
Apply mascara like a pro
Now let’s get into how to actually apply mascara like a pro and emphasize your eyes.
Curl your Eyelashes
The first step is to use a curler to curl your eyelashes. All mascaras bring your lashes slightly down. So curling them beforehand helps with that, not to mention it opens up your eyes and makes them more accentuated.
Remove Excess Mascara from the Wand
This is a step many girls skip, but it’s absolutely essential. If you don’t remove excess mascara from the wand, you’ll end up with sticky and lumpy eyelashes. This is especially true if you’re starting on a new tube.
So before you apply mascara, always remove excess product from the wand. It makes a huge difference!
Use the Right Technique to Apply Mascara
Now let’s get into the actual technique of applying mascara like a pro. Experts recommend that you start from the root of your eyelashes and then wiggle the wand as you move towards the end of your lashes. It helps if you look up while applying mascara.
That way, the product gets evenly dispersed and you avoid creating any lumps. You also get more product at the root than the top, which makes the lashes look more voluminous. Xlash Mascara has a curved wand which helps you to master this technique.
Also, make sure that you apply mascara to your top lashes firsts and move on to your bottom lashes. Use the same technique for the bottom lashes.
Apply Another Coat of Mascara
After you apply the first coat of mascara, I suggest that you add one or two additional coats. This will accentuate your eyes and create a very dramatic look that you’ll love! However, if you’re going for a simple daytime look, one coat should be enough.
Clean Up Any Mascara Specks
If you use mascara, you know exactly what it’s like when you accidentally get some under your eyes or even on your nose. (And it always seems to happen when you’re in a hurry and need to get ready quickly, what’s that about?!). The best way to remove these little mistakes is to wait until they have dried, which only takes a couple of minutes (have patience, my friend). Then, take a dry cotton bud and roll it over the mascara marks until they have disappeared.
Don’t Forget to Remove the Mascara Before You Go to Bed
It’s also important to emphasize that you simply must remove mascara before you go to bed. If you leave your makeup on during the night, you can damage your eyelashes, not to mention you wake up to a huge mess on your face.
So always use a makeup remover before you go to bed and protect your eyelashes.
If you want to accentuate your eyes, applying mascara is a must. It has been used for years by women all over the world so it’s no wonder mascara is still one of the basic makeup tools that never goes out of fashion. It is one of the best ways to accentuate your eyes and complete your look.
