Mascara makes everything better!
What sugar is to cupcake… Mascara is to beautiful eyes…
I cannot imagine stepping out without wearing my favorite Mascara. This magic potion is a cosmetic used to give a darkening, thickening, curling, volumizing, and lengthening effect to the lashes. For most of us, beauty lovers, Mascara is the ultimate stuff that can help open up the eyes while giving us a fluttery, flirty look or a sexy bold one. Apply a few extra coats, and you are good to go. But hold on, you need to be careful while selecting your perfect Mascara and ensure correct application to avoid unfortunate smudges, clumps, irritation, and flakes.
I think Mascara is one of the top 5 most essential grooming items for any woman. The toothbrush is 1st for sure, haha… Mascara is the right kind of drama you need in your life. It makes you look bright-eyed and gives a perfect finishing touch to your eye makeup..well even if it’s a winged eyeliner only! You can wear fabulous lip color, but that won’t save you looking droopy-eyed. My suggestion – just go for it and see the difference yourself.
What to look for in a mascara?
Look for a mascara that will not transfer easily and has the high performing ability to give you desired results. You will find mascaras in drugstores as well as high-end beauty stores, with each of the brands offering various types of Mascara to meet your specific needs. Don’t fall for the brand – make sure you try it on before buying.
Pay special attention to the mascara wands because each type of wand is made to give you a different kind of look. So finally it all depends on what you are looking for – here is a teeny-tiny guide for you to understand the wand types you are going to come across while looking for your ideal type:
- FULL WANDS
Best for: Volume
Why: The bigger wand, the more product you will take out from the tube, that means outrageous volume.
- CURVED WANDS
Best for: Curling
Why: The arc hugs the natural shape of your lashes to help coax them upward. Make sure to wiggle the wand mid-stroke to hit every lash.
- BALL-TIPPED WANDS
Best for: Definition
Why: The spiked sphere helps to detail individual inner lashes, bottom lashes, and longer outer lashes. The ball-tipped wand is better than conventional one-swipe mascaras if you want to focus all over 😉.
- SKINNY WANDS
Best for: Lengthening
Why: It coats each lash evenly from the bottom to tip, making them look naturally longer.
- HOURGLASS WANDS
Best for: Eye-opening
Why: In a U-shaped form, this brush reaches the outer corners of lashes, pulling them up and out. Get tons of volume and definition at the outer edges for a bright-eyed look.
- TAPERED WANDS
Best for: Volume and definition
Why: Ideal for plumping and separating each hair as this wand holds most of its volume at the base and thins out toward the top. The tip is cone-shaped, which makes it easy to coat bottom lashes, too.
How to put on mascara easily?
Step 1 – Clean your lashes well before application, ensure no product from previous application is left. Most of us tend to ignore this and end up with clumpy lashes. It will happen specifically if you are using a waterproof product.
Step 2 – Take the mascara wand and start at the roots wriggling your way outwards through your lashes
Step 3 – Put another coat once the first layer has dried. Let it dry completely, and you are ready to go
Pro tip – If you like your lashes curled, use an eyelash curler before applying makeup.
To avoid clumping by coating each lash in the first or second time, so you don’t brush through the lashes too many times.
