Mascara is a cosmetic used to darken, thicken and define eyelashes. Mascara comes in three forms: liquid, cake and cream. It also comes in many formulas, tints and colors. The general purpose of mascara is to emphasise, thicken, lengthen, and define lashes. Mascara is available with tube and wand applicators. Ingredients in mascara include water, wax thickeners, film-formers and preservatives.
How you beautify your eyes can make or break the look you want to project with your face. Having beautiful and tantalizing eyes is truly an asset on your part and I would strongly suggest that you apply make-up to emphasize them and to enhance more their loveliness. I have to admit that one of the things that I first look at in a person would definitely be the eyes.
If you are the type who doesnt wear any eye make-up or better yet apply any eyeliner or mascara for that matter, you are missing out on being proud of one of your valuable assets and that is the eyes. We all want to look beautiful and attractive all the time for our special man or basically to feel good and confident about ourselves and being gorgeous helps us feel this way.
I believe that even without eye shadow or liner, the simple application of mascara can make your eyes look more alluring and attractive.
I’ve found a few tricks over the years to make applying mascara a more tolerable experience:
* Use a lash curler first. It’ll make the process a lot faster, and you won’t have to use as much.
* Avoid colored mascara unless you’re going for a techno look.
* Blot the end of the wand on a tissue (not the tube) to clean off excess. This helps keep clumps off your lashes.
How to use a lash comb?
For some, lash combs are simply too fussy. But for some makeup artists, they’re a great invention and keep lashes glob-free and perfectly separated. So how to use? Apply mascara at the lash base. Then wiggle the lash comb through to the tips of your lashes. Not into the lash comb? Get rid of clumbs without them by removing excess mascara from the wand. Wipe wand on tissue, this eliminates blobs BEFORE you start.
Black mascara can be used by anybody at anytime though blondes should only use it for bright night makeup. Thin and short brush is best as it is easier to control and gets to the corner of the eye easily. It is also advisable to powder the under-eye area before applying mascara to avoid smudging. Curl the lashes before applying mascara by moving the wand in a zigzag fashion to make the lashes look wider and brighter. Applying mascara only on the upper lashes lend them a dramatic touch, while applying it lightly on the upper and lower lashes, make the eyes seem wider. A gel-based mascara enhances the lashes while thickening mascara looks more dramatic and adds volume to your lashes.
