Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it never hurts to let your eyes grab some extra attention…
In the blink of an eye
Mascara is the most used beauty product around and we can clearly see why. The difference between bare eyes and a touch of brown or black to enhance your lashes can be quite dramatic. We at RITUALS HQ honestly can’t live without this little miracle worker and most of us carry a spare one in our purse just to be on the safe side.
So you have the tools but how do you use them to get the best results? Check out our tips on how to create an eye catching look in the blink of an eye!
- Clean skin
First of all: make sure your skin is clean. To remove old layers of waterproof mascara, you need a good, non-oily remover. If your lashes are oily, your mascara won’t last long and you’ll end up with the dreaded panda look in no time.
Create a zigzag motion towards the tips of your lashes. By doing this, you’ll apply more mascara on your lashes and by zigzagging, you prevent your eyelashes from sticking together. If they do stick together grab your eyebrow brush and start combing carefully until you’ve untangled your lashes.
- Use the end of the brush
Create an even fuller look by applying mascara in the corners of your eyes. Tilt the mascara brush a bit and use the tip of the brush to apply mascara on your lashes.
- Apply two coats of mascara
If you’re in for a little drama, add a second or even a third coat for thicker and longer lashes. Key to do this properly is applying the second coat while the first coat has not dried yet. Once you apply wet mascara to a dry coat it will become flaky and give you that spider look. Not very desirable if we may say so…
- Use a cotton swab to correct mistakes
So now that you’re done applying mascara you realize that you’ve made a few mishaps on your eyelids. No need for a panic attack, simply grab a cotton swab and apply a little makeup remover to get rid of the excess mascara.
