  • I use two different mascara's. I put the one on that lengthens and the next one that separates. It makes them look really long.

  • As I am applying it I do one first then the other then go back and repeat the steps again but instead of brushing I kind of let the brush sit at the base of the lash then I slowly stroke it up and so on. Then I let them dry then I come back and curl them with an eyelash curler. They come out so pretty everytime. My dh calls me "sunshine eyes" I have been doing this for years so I guess you can say I am a pro at it :) Use a seam ripper or a safety pin if lashes tend to stick together.
    Any macara will do at the moment I am using the yellow with alittle purple "Collosol" by Maybelline

  • Some tricks that I learned from when I was an Avon Beauty Consultant that I still swear by are:
    1. NEVER wipe the wand on the tube, it creates clumps.
    2. Hold the wand vertically and sweep across tips of lashes (think windshield wiper lol) and then apply normally, starting at the base and slowly wiggling the wand back and forth as you go up. This helps to seperate the lashes.
    3. If you choose to put on two coats, apply the second coat while lashes are still wet. If you do it when they dry, it will either create the "spider leg effect" or make them clump and stick together.

    I like the idea of using two different kinds! I'm going to give that a shot!

  • I sometimes put a little powder under my eye because I wear contacts and always blink after I put on my mascara. Then I just dust off the powder and avoid the huge mascara streak on my face.
