How to Apply Mascara: Makeup Tips

Comments 47

  1. I think one of the most important things about Mascara is to pick the right formula for yourself. There are many different types like Waterproof, Lengthening, Defining, Volumising, Curling, and Non-Clumping. You have to pick the one that suits you the most. At least for that day. With so many different mascaras out there, you can try many looks.

  4. Curl curl curl !!!! I'm a short lashed girl 🙁 you know the drill if your "blessed" with shorties two or more formulas . My tip is apply lower lashes first . Had one too many black smudges on my eyelids 🙁 yes you can clean it up but nothing ruins a good eye make up day then having to clean up a preventable mess .

  5. When my mascara is running low on just isn't going on as well, I run the brush under really hot water, shake off the excess, and put it back. The heat helps mix the mascara again as well as making sure the brush isn't gunked up

  6. My number one piece of eyelash advice is to take your makeup off before you go to bed. It drives me crazy when female characters on television shows wear mascara while they sleep! If you buy a jar of remover pads, it takes less than a minute to remove your eye makeup.

  8. I do the things in this video, except I don't start at the base of my lashes because it generally causes an allergic reaction and my eyes will get all red and swollen! To add volume I always brush the tips of the lashes so that it builds up there 🙂

  9. My lashes are naturally long and curled, their just super thin, so I use volumizing mascara. My favorite is maybelline New York one by one, it gives my lashes that perfect volume I need. And if I wanted some extra length I use my em lengthening mascara just on the ends of my lashes.

  10. I always get my eyelash curler and curl them first then I always dab off the tip and start outside working inside on my lashes. Sometimes I will even curl them after one coat of mascara. I usually use two different mascaras I think it looks better on me with two different ones. Unless of course I'm using colored mascara then I stick with just the one. But I never thought of sweeping the top of the eye lashes! Thanks Ipsy for teaching me something new! I will have to try that tomorrow!! 😀

  11. I always make sure to dab the tip of the wand before applying mascara so it doesn't get on the side of my nose when I do apply closer to the inner corner. Also, when doing my bottom lashes, I turn my head slightly to the side and angled down to lift them away from my under eye area.

  12. I too wiggle my mascara, I have seen a huge difference once I started using this tip. If I am really wanting to glam it up, I will use two different brands of mascara as well. These two tips have helped pump up my lashes for a more lush look!

  14. Every night before I go to bed I put Vaseline on my eyelashes to help make them stay healthy and it even can help stimulate growth! For mascara I always splurge money to buy the higher end mascara because using a higher end mascara really makes a difference for me. My all time favorite mascara is Urban Decays Lush Lash mascara, which is formulated to help lashes grow over time (and it really works, it is not just a gimmick)!!  

  15. First and foremost , I always start off with clean lashes! No leftover makeup or you will get the spider legs look! Then I get off as much excess of my chosen mascara as I can. I start with a length booting mascara followed by a plumping mascara. Make sure not to let it dry before applying the next coat. I also love the wiggle motion from root to tip when applying:)

  16. I have a few mascara tricks that I use… First, I love layering 2 mascaras; I swear it gives you much fuller and longer lashes than just doing 2 coats of the same mascara.  Try tightlining. It gives the illusion of a longer lash.  Also, I use a curler and blast it with a blowdryer for about 3 seconds. It seems the heat helps set the curl.  🙂

  17. I have super straight lashes so I always start with an eyelash curler and clamp close to the skin then further towards the ends! Then I go in with Benefit's They're Real mascara – my holy grail!! 🙂

  18. I usually apply one fast coat (swiping up my lashes once over) and then for a second time but this time I wiggle the wand going up (not too fast ) to separate my lashes. This gives my nice long looking lashes and wiggling the wand separates my eyelashes giving me fuller looking lashes. (just like falsies ) If this is a nighttime look I swipe once over again to darken. Y lashes giving me a nice full long look.

  19. To transform my mascara quickly from a day to a night look.  I use a Q-tip and a tiny dab of Vaseline on my lower lashes and outer corners of my eyes to create a soft simple smokey eye.

  20. After I curl mine, I use a coat of waterproof mascara before anything. It helps mine stay curled. Then I use my favorite mascara. I always use several coats. I have blonde short lashes, so anything super black and lengthening is my best friend! I also always use something on my top lashes to cover my eyelids so I don't get mascara on my eye shadow. These are my simple tips 🙂

  21. I think that the eyelash curler has to be kind of the most important because some eyelash curlers suck and they dont curl ur eyelashes well. I like to put more than one coat of mascara to achieve fuller and lenghtier eyelashes (:

  22. I like to tilt my small vanity mirror at an angle so I can see up close if any lashes stick together. Also run the wand under hot water when there's too much product on it. Makes lashes less clumpy

  23. I have short lashes, so I have my routine that make them look way longer than they are. My routine is first
    1) Put my main volumizing mascara on, let it dry
    2) Brush through my eyelashes with a old mascara wand that has been completely used (it helps separate the lashes, because I don't like the clumpy look)
    3) Put on a different mascara ( I love the it's so big by Elizabeth Mott) and let that dry
    4) Brush through my eyelashes once again with the old mascara wand
    5) I then blow dry my eyelash curler (not very long, and not very hot), and curl my lashes.
    6) I also add a black gel liner on my upper and lower waterline to make them look even longer. 🙂

  24. My first tip is to invest in a good eyelash curler to curl those lashes.  You shouldn't have to pump or squeeze your curler, just a gentle squeeze should do it. I use a Shu Uemura curler.

    After applying mascara, I always like to take a clean mascara wand and run it through my lashes to separate them even more and to get rid of any pesky clumps.

    Lastly, if your mascara isn't making that squelchy pop noise when you pull the wand out, then it's time for a new mascara!

  25. Don't be afraid to experiment, mixing mascaras can cause different results, stick with the zigzag method and use a eye protector or simple business card to perfect your lashes without getting marks on your lids! :))
