We girls came up with the weirdest ideas when nature didn’t treat us kind. If we want a flat stomach, we simply wrap foil around our body, if we want our cellulite to disappear, we get ourselves those super effective thighs (bitter irony). And, if we just can’t get in shape our lashes, well, lash lengthening and thickening seem to be the last resort to make them look fabulous.
We mostly tend to chose those more complicated and expensive methods as at first sight, they supposed to be the more effective ones. But did it ever occur to you that with some quiet easy tricks you can save a lot of money and also achieve an envying result? :D
Today I’m talking about what could be your biggest mistakes when you’re applying your mascara, or rather, what could be the real reason why you haven’t managed to get yourself those glamorous, voluminous and beautiful curled eyelashes yet?
Our 6 biggest Mascara Mistakes:
1. Not using any eyelash curler
Right, mascara brings out the best of your eyes by enhancing your eye lashes. But, an eyelash curler gives you this extra boost which makes your eyes look even more irresistible – so, make sure to make use of this great invention. Side note: To prevent a breakage, never use your eyelash curler after you’ve applied mascara but before. If you’re looking for a great and qualitatively one, I can recommend you this one > HERE by Nars
2. Too many layers
The more layers you apply, the more clumpy and unnatural your lashes will look like. If only 1-2 dips into your tube aren’t enough or rather, doesn’t gives you the effect you want, you should think about getting yourself any other mascara as the formula doesn’t suits you well. There’s a suitable mascara out there for every single lash structure, some just need to try and test a little bit more than others.
3. Too many dips into your tube
Have you ever asked yourself why your mascaras are always drying out that fast? This might be the reason:
I guess we all do it. – If it seems like there is too less substance on the wand applicator, we tend to dip it like 1000 times in and out. This is a huge mistake, as moving your applicator in and out that often, just makes your mascara dry out faster due to the air, which gets into your tube and makes your applied substance look clumpy.
4. Using expired mascaras
Jep! Even mascaras have a date of expiry. After about 3 months you should really throw it away and get yourself a new one as the substance gets out of date. Above all, bacteria breed and spread themselves inside the tube and this can lead to itchy eyes or even any eye diseases.
5. You’re only applying mascara on your dips
To get the most beautiful effect, don’t forget about the rest of your lashes as it’s at least as important. Wiggle the mascara wand from the root up to the dips to get those seductive eye lashes and not to make them glueing together.
6. Mascaras are made for your eyelids
Of course this is wrong. They are not made for your eyelids, therefor make sure to only apply the substance on your lashes. Especially when we are in a hurry it happens to accidentally make up our lids with those wand applicators. Take the time to wipe this accident off with a cotton swab as it’s such a no-go leaving home like this. And common’ girls, it only takes a few seconds :-)
