Mascara is probably one of the most used products in your beauty arsenal, and for good reason: it instantly defines and perks up your eyes, making you look more alert and awake with just a few easy swipes. But there are also a few things you can do to maximize the use of your mascara and take your lashes to a whole new level. Watch the video below to see what difference just a couple of extra steps can make.
This next step is often overlooked, but it makes a huge difference—especially if you have fine or sparse lashes. Lash conditioners thicken, lengthen and boost the overall effectiveness of your mascara to give you the appearance of long, voluminous lashes. Look for a lash conditioner with nourishing ingredients like antioxidants and vitamins.
And now mascara—the product that no woman can live without. After curling and conditioning, your lashes are ready for mascara. Here’s a beauty tip that I swear by to help mascara go on more smoothly: Warm it up. Just hold it in your hand for a minute before applying. You’ll notice an immediate difference. If you have a new tube of mascara, you’ll want to wipe away any excess product from the brush to help prevent clumping.
Extend the Life of Your Mascara: A great tip for extending the life of your mascara is to add either a drop or two of eye lubricant or water. Mix it around with the spoolie and you’ll get at least another week of use. Remember to replace your mascara every three months to help prevent eye infections.
