Mascara can be considered a girl’s best friend. You know why? They accentuate a lady’s lashes making the eyes prettier and more dramatic and enhancing the beauty of your eyes.
Basic mascara rules are simple: Black works for everyone but can be harsh on light-skinned blondes. Blondes should opt for brown/black by day and reserve black for night. Burgundy or plum colors make blue eyes pop, as do blue mascaras. Purple mascara looks great on brown eyes.
Do apply mascara in layers. Start with two or three strokes on one eye and then go to the other and do the same, then go back to the other eye. Rotating like that a few times will help you build great lashes, but be careful to not overdo it. Applying too many coats not only can look messy and overly thick, but also increases the likelihood of flaking, chipping, or smearing. If your lashes look clumped or spikey, you’ve gone too far.
Many makeup artists recommend applying mascara only to the top lashes (I abide by this rule). If you want to make eyes appear wider, apply mascara to the bottom lashes but make sure you give lashes a light touch. Not great at getting those bottom lashes? Try putting a tissue under them before application.
