How to Apply Mascara


Before starting to apply mascara you will want to start with a clean face with all the makeup removed. A good makeup remover can eliminate all the old mascara and old makeup.

You need to decide if you will be using eye shadow and eyeliner before applying your mascara. Apply your eye shadow first and then apply whatever type of eyeliner you will be using. Make sure that you blend the eye shadow and eyeliner carefully. Stark or harsh lines will make the eyes appear harsh and will draw attention away from your eyes.

The next step is to take out the eyelash curler and apply the eye curler to the upper eyelashes. There are a couple of benefits of using an eyelash curler. An eyelash curler will help make the eyelashes appear to be longer making the eyes more attractive. Curled eyelashes will also give a lift to the eyes so they won’t appear to be tired. Take the curler up to the eyelashes open the curler and close the curler with the eyelashes in the middle. Squeeze the curler shut with the eyelashes still in the middle. Counting to ten will be just the right amount of time to get the eyelashes to curl. Do this with both the right and left eyelashes.

To keep the eyelashes curled longer hold the eyelash curler under a blow hairdryer. Just hold the curler under the heat for a couple of seconds. Be careful not to get the curler to hot you might burn yourself.

Think seriously about the color of mascara. If you are a blond or redhead, try using brown mascara this gives a more natural color. Black looks too harsh and unnatural on blond and red-haired people.

Milani Cosmetics is one of the drugstore brands that I think people tend to overlook as they head straight for the big name displays such as Maybelline or Revlon. Well, next time you run by that Milani display, stop and take a look. They have some great items.

Milani recently sent me a number of products to try and of most interest to me were their four brand new mascara formulations. It isn’t often that I try several mascaras from one brand at once and seeing the differences back to back was rather interesting!

Power Lash-Thickening Mascara is a volume builder with a HUGE brush. It has Vitamin E, panthenol, and bamboo extract for conditioning. I normally am not a fan of larger brushes, but this one was fine. It is a nice thickening, yet light formula, that was basically clump free when I tried it. It reminds me a bit of Maybelline Great Lash, but without the running and clumping problems (sorry, I’m not a Great Lash fan).

Great Lengths-Lengthening Mascara, is a straightforward lengthening formula. Gimmick free–something that I find quite refreshing these days–the mascara has a standard brush and comes in a standard tube, and delivers good results. I got a nice amount of length and little clumping (be sure to carefully wipe the brush first on this one though). If you want a good value basic mascara, you can’t go wrong with one.
