Make-Up Basics: Choosing & Applying Mascara

Hello loves! 🙂

Hope your all well! Here is he next instalment in my Make-Up Basics series; How to choose and apply mascara. To me, it’s the Holy Grail of make-up and that ‘must-have’ item in your purse. And it’s also typical, that it’s so difficult to find the right one! I should know, I’ve tried most of them (in the name of research, of course)…

So here are my top tips for applying and choosing the right mascara!

Always curl your lashes before applying mascara, doing it after will make your lashes brittle and prone to breakage.
Black mascara looks good on everyone, but for redheads and blondes, brown is great for a natural, daytime look!
NEVER pump your wand in and out of the tube, air will get in and cause bacteria to grow, and your mascara will dry out quicker too!
Replace your mascara every 3 months and never ever share, unless you really want to end up with some nasty eye infections!
When applying, start at the base of the lashes and roll the brush as you work towards the tips for full coverage!
Let mascara dry between coats for thicker, voluminous lashes without the clump!
Never rub or pull at your lashes when removing mascara, this can irritate the delicate skin around your eyes and can also make lashes fall out. Instead, soak a cotton pad in eye make up remover and hold onto the eyes for a few seconds to dissolve make up.

Hope this helped you guys!

Love & Lipstick,
