- Firstly, use a soft eye pencil in the root of the lashes as this is often where they are lighter. This does wonders for making the lashes look thicker, accentuates the whiteness of the eye and intensifies the colour.
- Don’t skip (or rush) the eye lash curlers – they are an amazing tool for opening the eyes. People always say curl lashes before mascara, and I totally agree…but why exactly? Well, if you curl while the lashes are tacky you risk the lashes sticking to the curlers when you pull them away. If you wait until the mascara is dry the risk is they can break or weaken the lashes. Also, make sure lashes are completely dry or the curling won’t work.
- Start at the base, holding the curlers tight shut for 5 – 10 seconds. Work up to the tips of the lashes each time raising your arm a little which will increase the curl. You can shoot warm air from your hairdryer for 3-5 seconds to warm up the curlers before curling – (touch before to make sure they’re not too hot).
- Apply mascara to the very base of the lashes and wiggle to get in the root. Then wiggle and roll the wand as you go up to the tip to avoid clumps and help separate. Leave a few seconds between coats, till the lashes are tacky, as they will loose their curl if they become too wet with mascara. If you don’t want to use a lash comb to separate lashes, you can always recycle an old wand – clean an old mascara wand in a cap full of eye make up remover, wash with soap and let dry.
- I love mascara on the bottom lashes, especially if you have small eyes. If you want a subtle look, use a brown mascara on the bottom lashes with a wand that you have cleaned with a tissue first so not too much goes on.
