Mascara is one of the few beauty products that can enhance your look in an instant. When it comes time to put it on, we all strive for perfect, fluttery lashes – but often we can end up with the dreaded spidery lash.
To say goodbye to clumpy lashes once and for all, we’ve teamed up with Yardley to equip you with the perfect lash formula and foolproof tips and tricks for getting doe-eyed, standout eyelashes every time.
1 Curl your lashes before
One of the biggest mistakes you can make when doing your lashes is using an eyelash curler after you’ve applied mascara and not before. An eyelash curler can curl your eyelashes up to almost a 90-degree angle and keep them there, but if you use the curler after you’ve applied your mascara, your eyelashes will stick to your curler and pull them out. Ouch.
Use it before and set your lashes in place. The longer you hold the curler, the longer your curl will last. Aim for about 10 seconds.
2 Apply a volumising mascara
You know what they say: the bigger, the better. Although, if you coat your lashes evenly, it will weigh down the tips of the hairs, causing your lashes to straighten out after a few minutes.
Create va-va-volume lashes by applying a thick coat of mascara at the root of your lashes and a lighter one towards the ends. You can achieve this by wiggling the wand back and forth at the base, and then lightly swiping up to the tips.
TRY: Yardley Intense Lash Mascara provides an intense and dramatic look, and it also gently tints your lashes over time. #Winning.
3 Apply a lengthening mascara
Once you’ve created volume, you need to add length. Apply a lengthening mascara from the roots to the very end to create a defined lash.
TRY: Yardley High Definition Mascara delivers instant length and offers precise separation for perfectly defined lashes. Its small applicator spoolie is perfect for reaching corners and separating each individual lash.
4 Lock it in
After all that hard work, you need to make sure your lashes stay put. Water-resistant top coats allow you to use your mascara of choice, allow it to dry and seal it in, which is kind of amazing. Layer it on top of your regular formula to make your mascara last longer and to smooth your lashes without adding bulk.
TRY: Yardley’s Raincoat Mascara is a clear water-resistant formula that provides an instant raincoat for your lashes.
Then, say hellooo to your flutter-tastic lashes!
