One of my presents this past Christmas season, was a Sephora gift package from my Mother with 9 mascara wands and 1 waterproof makeup remover. I tend to have short, thin eyelashes, so this gift was wonderful. thank you Mom !
Below is a short tutorial on putting on Mascara and curling your eyelashes:
- Curl your upper eyelashes before applying mascara to open up the eye. Lift your upper eyelid and look down. Position the eyelash curler close to the lash line, and squeeze for 5 to 6 seconds. Use a metal eyelash curler, rather than plastic curlers but don’t heat them beforehand.
- Always wear black mascara, regardless of age or skin tone. If your mascara crumbles easily, try using a waterproof mascara which will be longer lasting.
- Apply to the roots of your upper lashes and move upwards in short jagged motions. A jumbo brush will give a more dramatic effect more quickly, but a smaller brush if you have shorter lashes.
