Don’t trade in your mascara for false lashes just yet. By mastering the art of mascara application, you can elevate your eyelash game without having to deal with glue and extensions.
With the right strategy, wand and mascara, you can curl and paint your lashes to stand out just as much as false lashes would — if not more.
Gluing on a pair of false lashes requires time and patience that, truth be told, no one has. Don’t underestimate the power of a good mascara and strategic application.
If you are looking for a mascara to get your eyelashes looking fluttering and full, the BY TERRY makeup is like nothing else on the market.
It’s Terrybly Growth Booster Mascara is the perfect example of a mascara that can make your eyelashes look voluminous, without having to break out a pair of falsies. This mascara, in particular, has properties to stimulate lash growth for thicker, luscious eyelashes.
By choosing the right formula for your lashes and integrating some of these application strategies you can save yourself the hassle of applying false lashes while still boasting a dynamic eye look:
Curl Your Lashes First
Just in case you are one of those people who curl your lashes after mascara — don’t. Find a curler that works for you to give your eyelashes a lift. It’s suggested that you curl your lashes for 10 seconds before applying mascara.
Swirl – Don’t Pump
So many have the bad tendency of pumping their mascara wand in an effort to get more product on it, but that’s not how it works. Pumping your mascara makes it dry out faster. Instead, swirl your wand inside the mascara to pick up more product.
Pay Attention to Formula
The right mascara formula will make all the difference when applying your mascara. Choose one that is creamier, or oil based to prevent any clumps.
It’s better not to zig-zag your wand when you apply your mascara — nobody wants eyelashes that zig-zag. Instead, wiggle (yes, wiggle) your wand at the roots of your lashes, then go straight up to separate and lift them.
Don’t Be Afraid to Bend Your Mascara Wand
It may sound horrific, but makeup artists actually suggest bending your mascara wand. Carefully bend the tip of your brush to make it horizontal. This makes it easier to apply mascara to some harder to reach areas for even and full application.
Use Baby Powder
Thick looking eyelashes don’t have to be a pipe dream — you can achieve the look even without false lashes! By applying a light dusting of baby powder to your eyelashes, your mascara will stay better and will make them appear thicker.
Handle Clumps with a Toothbrush
Toothbrushes aren’t just good for brushing your teeth — they can also help you remove any pesky clumps of mascara that may have formed on your lashes.
To get rid of clumps, all you have to do is lightly brush your lashes with a toothbrush. This strategy not only helps to sperate your lashes, but also makes them look fuller.
Your lashes are all you need. With the help of some informed eyelash techniques, people won’t know if your lashes are yours or store-bought.
