I’m talking lower lash mascara here.
Personally, I don’t think that a perfect application exists when it comes to top lashes.
However, when it comes to lower lashes I feel the majority of people have the same mascara application method. I always see friends, family, and clients do it. (I never apply my client’s mascara unless they insist)
Of course each to their own but it just makes no sense to me.
And it looks like hard work.
What am I talking about?
Holding the wand at a horizontal angle cutting across the eye. Hand flying about in mid-air = no control and more room for smudgy mistakes. Who’s got the time for those?
Take back control!
Instead of that, try holding the wand vertically and resting your little finger on your cheek. This allows you to move the wand more easily back and forth across the lower lashes. With your little finger as the *pivotal point, you remain in total control of the wand.
The great thing is that you can use any size mascara wand with this method and always have full control. And unless you overload your wand with product, it’s very difficult to make a mistake or create clumpy lashes. It’s also difficult to poke the wand into your eye!
Perfect lower lashes every time…I promise!
*Can anyone else say pivot and not think of Ross Geller??
