For perfect makeup, mascara is essential. But how can we apply it quickly and effectively to have perfect lashes?
“Inner beauty is magnificent, but a touch of mascara never clashes.”
An indispensable product! You can do without eyeshadow, lipstick and, when it’s particularly hot, even foundation, but you can never do without mascara! There are endless types of mascara, to which different formulas are continuously added, with different applicators.
Volumizing, lengthening, with a “thickening” or even colored effect. The mascara Mia Make Up are suitable for the most varied needs. Everyone chooses the best ally to make up their lashes, according to their tastes and needs. But everyone is faced with the usual dilemma: how to best apply mascara?
Applying mascara to perfection: the steps for a correct make-up
The difference between a dream look and a simple make-up is precisely the way in which the mascara is applied. Let’s see together the winning steps and the tricks to literally have super lashes!
1. COMB THE LASHES
With the help of an eyelash comb with hard bristles, we eliminate any lumps that form between the lashes due to makeup residues not removed, or due to excessive production discharge from the eyes at night.
2. FOLD THE LASHES
We are talking about that strange metal contraption that looks like a pliers and which, instead of being an instrument of torture, is a very valuable ally for an irresistible gaze. If your lashes are naturally slightly curved, you just can’t do without it.
After combing the lashes and before applying the mascara, gently place it on the lash line, taking care to take them all and gently squeeze for about 10 seconds. Repeat this operation 4-5 times per eye, moving forward from time to time, up to the tips of the lashes, for a super-defined result!
3. PREPARE AND PROTECT
Before proceeding with the make-up, the lashes must be prepared and protected. The use of a eyelash primer is ideal: volumizing, lengthening, curative and protective. Just take a small amount of product and spread it with horizontal upward movements along the entire length of the lashes.
4. TAKE THE PRODUCT
If you think you are not applying mascara well, it is most likely because you are not picking it up in the right way. An incorrect withdrawal of the product risks creating a paste on the lashes with the sole effect of making our mascara dry more quickly.
How to remove mascara correctly?
We collect the right amount of product: to do this we extract the brush making it rotate sideways against the internal walls. We are careful not to push the mascara brush in and out several times: this process does nothing but let a lot of air into the container, making the product dry.
If you have realized that you have taken too much product, slightly unload the applicator with the help of a handkerchief. Once you have accumulated the necessary amount, you can move on to the next step!
5. APPLY MASCARA
We come now to the main step.
How to apply mascara?
Come to a mirror, guardor upwards and slightly lift the upper eyelid. At this point, bring the applicator close to the lash line. Starting from the base, place the brush and go upwards. Repeat this movement a second time, lingering on the hairline, pushing the lashes up as if to lift them.
With many brushes it is particularly difficult to reach the lashes of the outer corner and those of the inner corner: in this case the advice is to bend the mascara at 90 degrees or at an angle straight.
To apply mascara on the lower lashes , help yourself with the tip of the brush, smaller and easier to direct vertically .
How to apply mascara: tips and tricks
For an even more intense look, after applying the black mascara on all the lashes and before waiting for the product to be completely dry, apply a blue mascara twice only on the tip eyelashes (in case of dark eyes) or burgundy (in case of light eyes).
Some mascara formulas may create unsightly lumps. No fear! Get a clean brush (you can simply wash an old one with water and neutral soap) and move it along the lashes, from the base to the tip, twirling it slightly. With this little trick, when the mascara is still wet, the lumps will be removed and the lashes will be well separated.
What not to do when applying mascara
Be careful not to create too many overlapping layers, which increase the likelihood of the mascara drying out or forming unsightly lumps.
Very important: do not share your mascara with anyone, as it is the only cosmetic that cannot be disinfected and through the eyes it is possible to transmit and contract numerous infections!
And if, despite all the precautions, you end up getting stained, the best friend of make-up mistakes, the cotton swab, will save your life even in this case! But we’ll talk about this next time!
