1. WIGGLE THE BRUSH
Love a curl that lasts? Then applying mascara evenly throughout the length of your lashes is a big no-no! Instead, you should apply a thicker coat at the roots, by wiggling the brush back and forth, and then gently comb the mascara towards the tips.
2. APPLY MASCARA VERTICALLY
After a more natural look? It’s easy! All you need to do is to flip the mascara wand and apply the product vertically. Use the tip of the brush and run it along the length of your lashes. Voilà – longer, more natural-looking lashes at an instant!
3. FOCUS ON THE MIDDLE
Who doesn’t want big, round eyes? We know we do! So how is it achieved? Start by mentally dividing your eye into three parts. Then apply mascara to the middle part only, using the tip of the brush in a wiggling upward motion. You’ll see results straight away!
4. APPLY MASCARA DIAGONALLY
Another way to make your eyes look bigger is to apply mascara diagonally. The key to this technique is to pull the brush at an angle, instead of running it from the roots and upwards. Then finish off the look by giving your outer corners some extra attention.
5. PINCH EYELASHES TOGETHER
Doll-eyes is another highly sought-after look that’s not very hard to achieve. Also called spider lashes, this look features super-thick lashes pinched together into points. Get it by applying lots of mascara and then use tweezers to press a few lashes together.
6. BEND THE TIP OF THE WAND
Find it hard to access the inner corners of your eyes? Then this trick is for you! Gently bend the tip of the wand (where the brush is) in a 90° angle from the handle, and the wand will be much easier to control. However, once it’s bent you might not be able to straighten it out again, so keep that in mind before trying!
