Eyes happen to be the most expressive part of the body, more expressive than your body postures, smile, etc. The best make-up cosmetics ever made are the lipstick and mascara. Although kohl is also one of the cosmetics that transforms your face, it is not something that stands out. Anybody can make out that you have applied something to your eyes. As they say, the best make-up is the one that does not reveal you are wearing any, and also the one that highlights your beauty rather than attract attention. So, here are some tips and tricks for applying mascara.
All the tips will be useless if the product you buy is not of good quality. You need to know the problems that a wrong mascara can create. Clumping is one of the biggest problems and the mascara ingredients and brush are the main culprits. Different types of brushes are meant for different types of applications. Choose the right mascara and brush.
Then comes the color of the mascara. Many colors like black, brown, blue are available in the market. You have to select the one that goes well with your complexion. If you are the adventurous type, and like to experiment with funky colors, you could try the unconventional ones.
It is important to select a mascara that suits your eyelashes. Eyelashes can be of various types, for example, sparse, short, stubby, voluminous, long, thin, thick, etc. Identifying your eyelash type will help you choose the right product. It is very essential to read reviews of the various brands and then choose one.
Knowing how to apply mascara correctly is key to using the product well, else it might just not have the desired effect. The mascara should be applied on both, the upper and lower eyelashes.
Another tip is to curl your eyelashes with a curler before applying mascara. This makes your eyes look more open, expressive, and lively. Before using a lengthening mascara, which is used to make your eyelashes look long, you can curl your eyelashes for a double effect, i.e., making your eyelashes look longer as well as curled.
Last but not the least, go for a waterproof or smudgeproof mascara. You don't want to look like a ghost when you get emotional and your eyes turn moist. Buying a waterproof variety is especially recommended for working women because of the long hours they spend in office. This gives them the freedom to wash their face without having to worry about spoiling the eye make-up.
So, these were some tips that I think are essential before buying and applying a mascara. Hope it helped you in knowing the secret behind beautiful and lively looking eyes.
