Recently, some sweeping technological changes have been introduced by the world’s beauty labs-brushes that are flexible, curved and even vibrating, with mascara formulations that lengthen, volume and enhance the lashes condition.Have a look at Lash lift for more info on this.
So shape up to a whole new look of lash this spring by learning all the right moves, then choose the formula you need for your most flattering flutter.
Step by step, to the ultimate beautiful lashes
Using an eyelash curler (unless your lashes are damaged or prone, in which case you should limit their use to special occasions). This does not only curve the lashes but also isolate them, so mascara progresses smoother.
New wands generally hold too much product to allow you to go straight from barrel to lash, so dab off excess gently, preferably on kitchen towels (the tissues tend to have too many fibers that can enter the formula itself).
Work your upper lashes outwards from the inside corner. Looking down onto a mirror of your hand encourages you to brush from root to tip right. Wiggle the brush very slightly to the root for more oomph-this means more mascara is collected at the surface. Draw the lashes right through and brush the ends with mascara to lengthen them as much as possible. If mascara clumps, use a lash comb (or an old, washed mascara brush) to separate the lashes while the product is still damp-this may make it flake if it’s too dry.
Switch to the lower lashes without re-loading your brush-because they ‘re smoother, they don’t need as much coating. Using the tip of the wand, keeping it vertically, to ‘paint’ them for hard-to-reach bottom lashes (providing you have already cleaned away excess). If mascara appears to fall on your eyes, keep a hand mirror just above the level of your eye and look up into it-this will make the lifting of the bottom lashes clear of the area of your undereye.
Work the benefits of different textures and shades-try a lengthening mascara, for example, accompanied by a volumizing one for extra drama. Or first use black mascara, then brush with a colored variety on the tips so your lashes have width but still capture the light when you blink.
If you’ve got round eyes, focus more on the outside lashes for a winged-out look. If you have narrow-shaped eyes, focus on the center of the lashes for more mascara coverage.
If you have blonde or red eyes, you appear to highlight a rich brown hue more quickly than a heavy black one.
