However, not everyone is blessed with long, dark and thick eyelashes. But don’t you worry since there are many easy to do tricks that you can use to achieve those stunning and flirt eyelashes that will surely catch the attention of people you meet.

Is it good for eyelashes?

Using mascara is good for your eyelashes since you get to emphasize it more instead of just leaving it as it is. Then again, you also have to be really careful since there are just too many mascara brands that are now being offered in the market. Not all of them are safe to use. Prior to buying, make sure that you read the product label. Look at the list of ingredients used and if you can read product reviews then the better.

Mascara applying tips

Whether you have long eyelashes or not, there are easy tips and tricks that you can do on your own to achieve that perfect look. Here are the steps that can help you get those flirty eyelashes.

1. Make sure you curl first

The very first thing that you should do is to curl your lashes first. Most women have flat eyelashes and without you curling them the tendency is that it would not look that visible. Even if you put on your mascara, it can hardly be seen. Plus, the aesthetic value comes with having long and curly eyelashes. Use an eyelash curler if your lashes look really flat. It is very easy to use.

2. Clean the Mascara wand

Once you have finally curled your eyelashes, the next step is to open your mascara and to start applying. But since most mascara products have thick consistency, you have to clean the mascara wand before you finally apply it directly on your mascara. You need to do this in order not to smudge and to mess it all up when you want to apply it. Just get the right amount of consistency. You don’t want your eyelashes to appear really messy.

3. Don’t forget to wiggle

Now that wand is clear, do not forget to wiggle the mascara. This is to ensure that you get to have an even consistency before you finally apply it on your lashes. Just wiggle the mascara a bit and after that, you are good to go.

4. Use a zig, then a zag

In applying the mascara on your eyelashes, you do not just apply it in a straight motion and direction. This is where the trick is. If you want your lashes to look longer and if you want to make it curly even after you have finally used a curler, you have to use a zig then a zag. Doing this makes your eyelashes look more voluminous.

5. Finish up with powder

After achieving that look, how can you then make sure that will last? Many professional makeup artists make use of various tricks and techniques in order to make a makeup last. In the case of eyelashes with mascara, it helps if you can finish up with powder.

6. Don’t forget the roots

Another important trick that you should remember when applying mascara is that you should not forget the roots. You should start applying from the roots then in an upward motion. In applying in this motion, it can make your lashes look longer than the usual.

7. Add some shading

To make your eyes look bigger, you can actually add some shading. This will complement your eyelashes to achieve a fuller look. Choosing the perfect shade of mascara is also essential. For instance, will you go for a black mascara or a blue one? It would really depend on your choice.

8. Make it smooth

Applying mascara can be quite a challenge especially when you are not used to it. There are times where you feel your hand is not that steady. Just keep in mind that in order to achieve those gorgeous lashes using a mascara you have to make it smooth. As much as possible, you would not want your mascara to get really messy.

9. Use a metal lash comb

Just like the hair, you can also use a comb for lashes. In this case, you need to make use of a metal lash comb. Using a comb makes your lashes look neat. At least, you will not have a hard time in finally applying your mascara if you have used the metal lash comb prior to application.

10. Mix it up

One of the easy tricks for you to increase the volume of your lashes is to mix it up. Yes, you heard it right. You can definitely mix two mascara products if you have them. You can just mix them and apply it on your lashes. This will make your lashes look thicker and fuller. Even if you have thin eyelashes, you never have to worry as this will do the trick.

Having gorgeous and sexy eyelashes is definitely a must for women. There is nothing wrong in investing in quality eyelash enhancing products and doing these tips.
