What’s a key for successful make-up? What can highlight your eyes and make your look wonderful? Lashes mascara is the right answer. It is the most popular everyday make-up thingy after lipstick. Although lashes mascara is common used, there are plenty mistakes you can make if you choose wrong mascara or if it’s poorly applied.

Girls that advertise various mascaras look adorable on billboards or magazines pages, but which one to choose to give your lashes that real magic? It’s all about mascara type, brush and color:

· Black goes for everyone and everywhere. Black mascara is universal! There are various shades of grey, dark brown and dark blue, so if you decide to buy black mascara, make sure it is actual black.

· Brown finely suits blondes and redheads. If your lashes are very light-colored, black mascara may look weird, but brown goes perfectly.

· Match mascara color with your hair color for natural look. Black highlights eyes, but it doesn’t look natural. Try to choose a bit darker mascara than your hair color to look natural and sweet everyday.

· All the colors of the rainbow suit for teens, but don’t fit formal make-up. Untraditional colors look too playful for office wear, but don’t be afraid to experiment with other types of make-up. Give you lashes new look by covering them with your ordinary color and applying colored mascara on the tips.

· The shorter brush the easier use. Too long brush may be difficult to handle. Also thinner brush is more comfortable to reach lashes at the corners of eye and to avoid smudges.

· Bended brush is better than straight. When brush is curved to fit eye line, it’s easier to apply mascara.

· Use waterproof mascara for long lasting make-up. Perfect make-up should stay all the day long.

· Thickening mascara works perfect for dramatic and mystic look. Add volume to lashes to create fatal woman image.

· Lengthen your lashes. Lengthening mascara makes lashes more noticeable and opens up eyes.

· Curling mascara bends straight lashes. However make-up professionals use lashes curler, not curling mascara.

Every woman has her own technique on how to put mascara on, but there are some basic “rules” as well. If you know what mascara fits you and how to choose color, but eyes make-up is nightmare for you, try useful tips on how to apply lashes mascara.

  • * Cover lashes from the bottom to the tips. If you don’t apply mascara on bases, they will be different in color and that look odd. If you will leave the tips of lashes alone, lashes will be optically shorter. Who of us would want that? Apply mascara to whole length for optimal effect.

  • * Use combs to remove clumps and separate lashes. Glued together lashes are not OK and clumps are not OK either. Brush lashes with special combs while mascara is not dried to avoid miserable look. Remember: make-up professionals prefer metallic lashes combs to plastic made.

  • * Clean brush often. When there’s too much mascara on the brush, it sticks lashes together; when there are pieces of mascara stuck on brush, it sticks to your lashes and leaves clumps. Put some eye make-up remover on handkerchief, clean the brush; wash it with water and leave to dry. The brush may irritate eyes badly after washing it with soap, so better avoid it.

  • * Lay on second coat while the first one had not dried. If you like to put two coats of mascara for extra volume, don’t wait till first coats dries. Otherwise you will scrape dried mascara and make lashes lump. Several thin layers are better than one huge viscous layer.

  • * Use lashes curler before using mascara. If you curl your lashes with mascara applied, you can make them a great damage.

  • * Don’t use mascara right after using face cream. Most creams are oily and make lashes mascara to melt and smudge skin around eyes.

  • * Avoid pumping brush into mascara tube. Mascara tubes and brushes are design the way that there’s already enough mascara on the brush when you pull it out. Also, when you pump the brush, air gets into the tube and mascara dries more quickly.

  • * Don’t use the same lashes mascara tube for more than 3-4 months. All mascara dries after mentioned period. If you keep using obsolete mascara it may irritate your eyes. Old mascara turns into clumps, and who of us would like that?

  • * Don’t leave mascara (or any makeup) unremoved for a night. It’s not good for both lashes and skin; and it takes only two minutes to clean it with makeup remover.

Lashes mascara is irreplaceable for any makeup. Correctly dyed lashes can make you look magical, subtle, natural or insolent. Simply don’t be lazy and don’t be afraid to experiment.
