BlogStar entry: miracle mascara – application tecnique for luscious lashes

Competition: beautyheaven’s BlogStar promotion

At one time or another, we all have had a war with our mascara resulting in smudged, clumpy or spider-like lashes. Believe it or not, this usually corresponds with the application technique more so than the mascara used. Although it seems lengthy, this application process (when perfected) is only a few minutes!!!!

The following is a step-by-step guide to the perfect application:
1. Blend a dab of face powder under the eye. This will decrease the chance of smudging as mascara is attracted to oil. Products such as eye cream or concealer or the skins natural oils can cause smudging.

2. Warm a metal eyelash curler with a 4 second blast from the hair dryer and test it’s not too hot, before curling the lashes. Curling lashes gives the appearance of wider and brighter eyes.

3. Holding the wand horizontally apply a primer at the lash base. Then wiggle the lash comb through to the tips of your lashes. Wiggling separates lashes and adds volume. Not only will your primer coat and separate the lashes but will make you’re mascara last longer. You can skip this step of you’re in a rush!

4. Immediately after primer application, hold the wand horizontally and apply your favourite mascara at the lash base. Then wiggle the lash comb through to the tips of your lashes. Replace the wand back in the tube. Repeat this mascara application process for at least 2 coats.

6. Coat the lash tips by holding the brush half way between the lash and blinking 3 times. To make lashes appear even longer, blink once with wand touching the outer lashes. Let the mascara dry and repeat on the other eye!

Notes:
– DO NOT LET THE PRIMER OR MASCARA DRY IN BETWEEN COATS!
– Not allowing the mascara to dry between coats prevents the mascara “dragging” through the lashes. This “dragging” can result in clumps. Using this technique, more mascara can be layered with little effort!!!   
– You can substitute mascaras in between coats (if desired). I.e. you may want to swap between lengthening, volumising, or defining mascaras.
– Bottom lashes may be left bare or coated using the same technique.
– Don’t pump wand in and out of the tube. The introduction of air into the tube decreases the shelf life.
– Colour mascaras are fantastic for lash tips (step 6).

Be daring!
