how to perfect MASCARA


Be specific in what you would like to achieve with your mascara. Experts say that there is no mascara that combines all the ingredients in one. Look for the specific mascara type for the look you would like to create. My daughter adds at least 2 different types to achieve her look.
The resins and waxes in a curling mascara lift and bend stick-straight lashes, while a lengthening formula's nylon fibres act as extensions on short ones. And the brush matters, too: If it's big and bushy, that's how your lashes will look. A brush with spiky plastic bristles separates.

Black works on everyone even the fairest of complexions. Mascara is used to enhance the shape of the eye and define the lashes. 
A swipe of purple is gorgeous on green, blue, and hazel eyes, while blue and green mascaras offer a gorgeous contrast against brown.

Save the waterproof for special occasions as it can be super tough to take off. Try something water resistant instead.
Waterproof formulas are too tough to remove for everyday use; you'll have to rub hard to loosen the color, so there's a chance your lashes will break.

Use an eyelash curler. I have never used one of these but they make your eyes appear wider and sexier in seconds.
The key is to use it before applying mascara, because the mascara can stick to the curler, causing some lashes to be pulled out.

Add fullness and drama apply lengthening mascara to the lashes, then apply a voluminising mascara against the roots and pull through.
These lashes give the eyes an elongated shape.

Length and definition apply two coats of lengthening mascara.
Start by squeezing the wand in a paper towel. Apply to one eye, then the other, letting the mascara dry completely before your second swipe. Shimmy the brush into your lash line and swiftly pull it through the lashes. This rapid, wiggle-slick move separates lashes and makes eyes look bigger.
