Are you maximizing all that Lash real estate you never knew you had? If not, I’m going to show you how to put on mascara!
Starting with clean, curled lashes, follow these steps to use both of our Full Control Mascara wands like a total pro!
Step 1: TIGHTLINE BRUSH
Keep your chin up and eyes down in front of a mirror. Wiggle the tightline brush deep within the roots of the lashes and slowly roll the wand between your thumb and forefinger, while continuing to wiggle/zigzag very slowly up to the tips.
As you apply the mascara, slightly close the eye to help nudge the brush upwards. (When you do it correctly, you’ll feel your lid lift gently off your eye.) This will not only pull the lashes up and into the mascara wand for better curl, but will also saturate them with mascara from root to tip.
A game-changing approach to applying mascara is to think of the lashes as a sunburst with three distinct sections, and coax the hairs in the direction they naturally grow:
- 1. Inner corner of the eye – coax hairs to the top of the nose/start of the brow
- 2. Center lashes – coax hairs straight up
- 3. Outer corner of the eye – coax hairs out towards the tail of the brow, adding a little extra dab to open the eye.
Step 2: CURVED SILICONE BRUSH
Repeat the process from Step 1, this time using the curved silicone brush.
Once you’ve coated every section, repeat the process. If you are doing this correctly, you will most likely have smudges, don’t worry, it’s all part of the process. Leave any smudges until application is complete, then erase them with a cotton bud and an oil free cleanser.
