How to make the most of your lashes

I know I’ve covered mascara as part of my posts on the basics of makeup application, but I keep getting asked how to volumize and lengthen lashes without using falsies or extensions.  A few quick tips to work what your momma gave you:

– apply mascara to the front and back of lashes

– hold wand at base of lashes for up to 3 seconds to penetrate and deposit product at base of lashes (this will help your mascara last longer)

– slowly in a back and forth motion apply mascara all the way to the tip of lashes 

– I find Givenchy’s Phenomen’Eyes Mascara works wonders to build the outer corner lashes. If you don’t have the money to spend on Givenchy,  you can achieve this look by using the tip of another wand to apply multiple layers (with out clumping) in an upwards and outwards motion to the outer lashes. This will give you a lovely cat eye effect

-Use a lash tool to comb out any clumps

Happy Friday everyone, have a great weekend!
