Mascara 101

Are you getting the best out of your mascara? Here are some simple tips to prefect your makeup routine


Don’t pump your mascara wand in and out, this will push air into the tube and cause your mascara to dry out faster. Swirl!!!

Replace you mascara every three months for hygiene reasons and generally it will dry out around this mark and won’t perform as well. Sorry ladies it doesn’t last forever.

Brand new mascara will be very wet, and there can often be excess product on the brush so blot the brush with a tissue before application to avoid clumpy lashes.

Apply mascara to your lower lashes first.

Wiggle and zig-zag the brush through the lashes slowly, from the base to the tips. This gives better coverage, separation and length than lightly brushing the mascara on repeatedly.

Layer waterproof mascara on top of your regular formula to make your mascara last longer and make it easier to remove at the end of the day

Mascara brushes are as important as the formula. Curved brushes help with curling, fat brushes are great for volume, and small straight brushes are excellent for definition and separation.

Soak your mascara tube in a cup of hot water to make the formula more liquidy instead of clumpy. This will make the formula thinner and easier to apply.

If you get mascara on your skin, always wait for it to dry completely before buffing it off with a cotton bud otherwise it will smudge.

Blue eyes, try a brown or bronze mascara and deep purple mascara for green eyes. Brown eyes try a navy or blue mascara.
