These 8 MASCARA HACKS THAT WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD will definitely make an impact in your life! Apply mascara like a pro from here on out! There are tons of makeup tricks and tips popping up every day via Youtube or Instagram by both experts and your everyday make up lover, to make applying makeup easier. They show how to make applying makeup look even better, easier and cost less than ever before! However, I’ve noticed that there are not very many mascara hacks floating around, and although I feel like applying mascara should be the easiest of your make up application, that’s not always the case. When I first started wearing mascara, I was a train wreck. I wore too much (way too much!) applied it unevenly and somehow managed to get it under my eyes every single day. Because of my past experience with mascara I really appreciate these 8 MASCARA HACKS THAT WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD.
1. MAKE SURE YOUR MASCARA IS FRESH
I know that may sound weird (since mascara isn’t food for goodness sakes), and it may seem like you just bought it, but chances are, your mascara needs to be replaced. Mascara only lasts 2-4 months once it’s been opened and used for the first time. So, if your mascara is nearing its expiration date, it will tend to be drier and yield results that you won’t like. And on top of the application being different, Mascara mites are a real thing and you do not want this little bacteria bug building up on your wand and onto your eyelashes.
2. LAYER YOUR MASCARA TO MAKE IT LAST LONGER
Jane Iredale makes 2 simple steps for your lashes to look and feel longer and fuller. First apply the clear PureLash lash extender and conditioner. Apply a single coat of this conditioner before applying mascara to help strengthen, lengthen and thicken your lashes, making the mascara twice as effective. Give the lash conditioner about 60 seconds to dry before applying your favorite Jane mascara.
3. IT’S ALL IN HOW YOU HOLD THE BRUSH
Hold your mascara brush horizontally and wiggle it back and forth for voluminous lashes. Holding your brush vertically and applying mascara using smooth strokes will give you a more natural look.
4. BABY POWDER ADDS VOLUME TO YOUR LASHES
Apply baby powder to the tips of your lashes with a clean disposable mascara wand before applying mascara for fuller lashes. The baby powder sticks to your lashes and adds volume.
5. APPLY MASCARA WHILE CURLING THEM FOR STUBBORN LASHES If your lashes just don’t like to curl, try applying your mascara to your lashes while they are in the lash curler. This will help secure the curl and make it last longer. You can also try heating up your lash curler before you curl your lashes after applying mascara by heating it with a hair dryer for a few seconds.
6. BEND YOUR WAND INTO AN L-SHAPE FOR EASIER APPLICATION
Bend your wand into an L-shape (so that the brush is perpendicular to the handle). It makes application easier on the top and bottom lashes, especially harder to reach lashes like the lashes at the corners of your eyes. Don’t worry, the wand will still fit in the mascara tube.
7. BLINK TO APPLY YOUR MASCARA
Rather than move the mascara wand over your lashes, hold it on your lashes and blink. Do this several times. This will insure that the mascara hits every lash.
8. APPLY MASCARA TO HAIR TO HIDE GRAY’S
Although this isn’t for your lashes this is one of my favorite uses for mascara! Apply mascara to the roots of your hair in a pinch to cover grays. That is, if your mascara color matches your hair color…
