4 WAYS TO LENGTHEN, SEPARATE AND PERFECT EYELASHES WITH MASCARA!

🖤 TIP TIDBIT! 🖤



Did you know that the way you hold your mascara wand when applying mascara can dramatically change the shape and size of your eyes? Check out this tip tidbit below!! 👇 Here are how-to tips and tricks for using 1 mascara to create 4 (yup, 4 😊) different looks that open up, define, elongate and intensify your eyes!! 💖


➕ Insider Tip: For optimal results with all the following looks, always start by curling your lashes with a lash curler. ➕


◾️FULL FAT LASHES: To apply, pull your lid taut using your spare hand and sweep the pencil across the lash line in a continuous, thin line. Retrace to your preferred intensity. For extra drama, line the upper and lower water lines. The result is chic and timeless, perfect for an enhanced daytime look with curl, separation, volume, length and drama.🖤


◾️WINGED LASHES: To elongate your eyes for a seductive, hypnotic look, take mascara, hold the brush diagonally across the lashes, and pull upward and outward at the outer corners for an exaggerated, elongating effect. This creates a sultry, lifted, winged eye shape that’s sure to turn heads. Pair liner to further enhance the elongated effect. Start from the inner corner of the eye, drawing a very fine line as close to the lash line as possible to about two-thirds of the way across. Make a small dot where you want your “flick” to end, then begin to thicken the line upward and outward toward the finishing dot.🖤


◾️DOLL LASHES: To open up your eyes for an innocent, youthful look, take mascara, hold the brush vertically, and pull up through the lashes from root to tip. Pair with black eye pencil and (😉 a nude tone on the bottom waterline that instantly opens up the eye area and creates the illusion of wider, fuller and more-awake eyes.) To apply black liner, start from the inner corner of the upper eyelid and draw a thin line as close to the lash line as possible, across and outward until you get two-thirds toward the outer corner. Extend the line upward and outward to the outer corner to create the illusion of an almond-shaped eye.🖤


◾️FALSE LASHES EFFECT: To intensify and frame your eyes for an instantly glamorous red carpet look, take mascara, hold the brush horizontally across the lashes, and pull through in a zigzag motion, nestling the brush in the lash line first. The black pigment intensifies the lashes for a stand out effect that turns heads, helping you cheat your way to silver screen siren. Pair with black eye pencil for the full effect. To apply, start from the inner corner of the upper eyelid and, as close to the lash line as you can, draw a thin line across and outward until you get two-thirds toward the outer corner. Extend the line upward and outward to the outer corner to create the illusion of an almond shaped eye. 🖤
