6 Simple Steps To Applying Mascara Like A Pro

How to apply mascara like a pro, by Barbie's Beauty Bits.
It seems myself, like others in my beauty circle are always looking for the next best mascara.  As lusting over long lushes eyelashes has been an addiction, as long as I can remember.  So, today, for my month of mascara posts,  I am going to share with you my top 6 tips to applying mascara like a pro. 

Tip 1:  Mixing them! Yes, I know the thought of having to spend money for one multiple mascaras to do the job you wish one would do, has always been frustrating to me.  But honestly, over the years, I’ve found that my lashes look the best when I mixed a few! The best results, have been from mixing a volumizing mascara with a lengthening one. See some of my favorite mascaras below.

Tip 2Use two different tones of mascara on your lashes.  For example, use a carbon mascara (the blackest) on the top and a brown on the bottom lashes.

Tip 3:  Prevent clumps: 
  • The best way is to prep your lashes first. You want to make sure that you start with clean eyelashes. 
  • Prior to application, you want to blot your mascara wand on a piece of tissue, this will help to remove any access mascara.   
  • When applying, do it in a zig zag approach.

Tip 4:  Make use of an old cleaned wand & bend it.  Using a wand when the brush is bent at a right angle works wonders!

Tip 5:  Application:
  • When applying mascara, you want to do a back-and-forth motion, moving the wand in a upward sweep.  The upward sweep helps to create the illusion of curly eyelashes. 
  • For long lashes focus on the corner lashes, this will help your eyes look brighter & more opened.

Tip 6:  Fuller lashes:
  • Apply some black eyeliner to the upper waterline.
  • Dust your lashes with powder, bronzer or a dark eyeshadow before applying mascara. This will allow the mascara to adhere to the lashes, building thickness.  This is a great DIY approach to the fiber formula mascaras.
