Lashes Galore

Every girl has seen her struggles with her lashes –whether it be in the form of clumps or curling. Here are 6 tips and 4 mascara recommendations to help you out with your daily routine!

1. Use the proper mascara wand to get the type of lashes you want!

Most packagings for mascara provide a picture or basic model of the shape of its wand. Use this to your advantage and know what you’re looking for before you purchase!

Use:

  • An oversized wand if you want maximum volume for your lashes.
  • A cone taper wand if you want more volume on the outsides of your lashes. This shape will provide you with a fan-like look.
  • A curved wand for a fanned-out curl.
  • A balled tip wand for detailed edges.
  • A micro wand for a more natural look.
  • A rubbery shorty wand for more length.
  • A flat come for more separated and dark lashes.

2. To revive your mascara, add a few drops of contact lens residue and mix

There are so many instances when mascaras dry out before its expiration date. Why spend another $10 or $30 on another tube when you could just revive your old one!

3. To de-clump your lashes, simply brush over your mascara with a toothbrush!

If you find a toothbrush uncomfortable or too expensive, disposable mascara wands are also a great option! You can swipe a couple from a makeup stand in almost any department store and clean them at home.
