Life-Changing Mascara Hacks
Mascara is one beauty product that is a staple in many people’s make up bags. We think we know everything about mascaras, but we’ve got a few life-changing hacks that will change the way we use mascara.
- Use a lash primer
To upskill or really benefit from the full potential of any mascara, prep your eyelashes with our Skin story lash and growth serum that acts as a lash primer. This preconditioning formula makes black mascara last longer, prevents flaking or smudging, and adds volume and length before you apply the original black mascara throughout the day, amping up your look for the optimum payoff.
- Wipe your wand before use
Beauty writers and experts have an exciting hack to avoid clumping. To prevent clumpy and messy application, wipe off and eliminate blobbiness from the mascara wand before applying it to your lashes. Take a tissue or a clean cloth and gently swipe the wand against it. This step removes any excess product that could lead to clumping and ensures a smoother and more even application.
- Learn the wiggle and roll technique
When applying mascara, instead of simply swiping the wand from root to tip, try using the wiggle and roll technique. Start at the base of your lashes and wiggle the wand back and forth horizontally. This motion helps to separate and coat each lash, creating a fuller look.
After wiggling, roll the wand upwards towards the tips of your lashes to add length and curl. Combining the wiggle and roll technique ensures that each lash is evenly coated and beautifully defined.
- Change your brush angle for a dramatic finish
Some beauty experts have tried and tested that the way you hold the brush when applying your mascara makes a larger difference. Instead of holding it straight and parallel to your lashes, tilt the wand vertically and use the tip to apply mascara to the outer corners of your lashes. This technique adds extra volume and length to the outer lashes, creating a more natural and elevated effect.
- Add an evening coat
Consider adding an extra evening coat of mascara for a glamorous evening look. After applying your initial coat, please wait for it to dry before adding a second layer. This additional coat intensifies the volume and length of your lashes, giving it a more dramatic and luxurious appearance. However, be careful not to apply too many coats, which can lead to clumping. Two coats are usually sufficient for a stunning evening look.
Here are the best black mascara hacks that will help you achieve fuller lashes. Whether you use these for an everyday ‘no-makeup’ makeup look or a party look, these hacks will change the way you use mascara.
