How To Get The Flurriest Lashes Using Mascara

Applying mascara seems self-explanatory, doesn’t it? Just open the tube, swipe it on, and move on with your life. But well, good work is one which betrays no effort. Translation: Your eyelashes must look like naturals.

Yess!

Although there are many ways to get your lashes done, a slick of mascara is the best way to create a fluttering fringe to your eyes- especially if you have light coloured hair and your lashes are harder to notice.

The most common mascaras come with a wand with a spiral brush at the end and this makes them quick and easy to use. Some contain fibres to add extra thickness and length to your lashes.

For a girl on the go I’d really say waterproof mascara is the best choice . Most Youtubers and websites have concluded upon this as the golden hack to long lasting curly lashes!

It withstands tears, showers and swimming. And it really holds the curls longer. Call it a hairspray for eyelashes🙂

But if you’re getting yourself a waterproof make is necessary to get a make up remover as well to remove it. Moisturising eye-makeup removers work magic in removing waterproof mascara, which clings to your lashes more than ordinary ones.

The Steps:

1. Curlers:

The curler is optional in most cases. But it does serve its purpose. I would really not advice heating the curlers. It hardly adds a big difference plus it can damage the hair. So use it plain and most importantly curl the entire length of the lashes. Don’t just clamp on one spot and move on.

Top TIP!

Always use the curler, BEFORE the mascara! Even though it feels like you might accidentally ruffle them later on, curling your lashes after mascara can make your lashes stick to the curlers and even pull them out. Ouch.

2. Applying The Mascara:

Upper Lashes:

  • Start by applying mascara to your UPPER lashes first.
  • Brush them downwards to begin with then brush the lashes upwards from underneath. Use a tiny zig zag movement from side to side to prevent the mascara turning to lumps on your lashes.

(This happens to me often and like an uncivilized monkey I try to remove the lumps with my hands and well, it gets messy😂 lol)

  • Comb through your lashes with a lash comb. Doing this removes the accidental lumps of mascara and also adds length to your lashes.

Lower Lashes:

  • With the TIP of the mascara ward brush your lower lashes, using a gentle side to side technique. I don’t have thick lower lashes so it’s for me to get them smudged.

So using the tip of the wand to wriggle through, is the hack here!

The upward movement

Top TIP!

Instead of just coating the hairs with the mascara, press the wand against the root of your eyelashes, and blink as you wiggle the brush through the hairs. The force of your lashes blinking against the spoolie will allow them to pick up even more product, which means evenly coated lashes for you

3. Adding Multiple Coats!

For a more natural effect, stick with one coat. For bigger, thicker, more dramatic lashes, layer on two or more coats.

A cool trick to making sure they don’t look too clumpy or spidery? Switch up your mascara formula with each layer!

A featured YouTuber (I really forgot the name, sorry) first uses a thinner formula with a curved brush to separate and define her lashes, then a thicker formula with a fuller brush to add volume and length.

6. If you really want your eye lashes to be flurry, REPEAT the whole process. But remember to let the previous layer of coating dry first! Sometimes in a hurry I tend to overlook this fact, but believe me waiting those few seconds, really is worth the deal. It gives a clean look. 🙂

So that’s it!! Voila!! You can glam up with a little bit of eye makeup if you’d like, or just let the lashes speak for themselves.

I haven’t suggested any brands specifically because tbh, it all just looks black to me, so I just stick to one brand that works well for me. So personally I always use Maybelline Volum Express Mascara. They offer hundreds of varieties and all the reviews I’ve read say they’re really good.


Hope you enjoyed the post!

What mascara do you use? Are your lashes long by birth? Mine are😂🙂 so I feel lucky there.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. So interesting to read about eyelashes and how to properly apply mascara 💖 At the mo I’m trying to naturally get nice lashes by applying Vaseline so that when I go back to school I’ll only need to curl them! 💕 Amazing post 🙂

    But I love reading and watching beauty tutorials, so this just came at the right time!

  3. Ahh a couple of months ago I started wearing makeup every now and then but I recently fell out of the habit again 😂 This has gotten me excited to give it a go again so thank you for the tips! Especially the one about blinking, I hadn’t thought of that 🙌 My eyelashes are a bit long, maybe somewhere in-between 😂 and I think I use a Benefits mascara (I SHOULD know what I use especially so close to my eye so I don’t know why I have to think about it🙈😂). Great post! ❤️

    1. Wow that is really cool. 😁Well tbh I don’t wear makeup often unless I actually go out somewhere where I need to look nice😂
      Thank you so muchh🤗❤ And yay I’m glad you have noticeable lashes. (One thing I’m happy about with having darker hair 😁😁)
      And haha okay that made me laugh😂😂 But well assuming you are using Benefits mascara, yay good for you! They’re really so popular these days. 🤩

  4. Ahhh I used to be so scared of eyelash curlers but this is reassuring haha. 😂 I used to love mascara but now I don’t put makeup anymore. It might be just me but it doesn’t feel nice on my face and I prefer feeling good with face masks and creams. Love these tips though and I don’t have long lashes but I’m happy for yours! 😂<3

  6. My eyelashes are also super long by birth but, I still wear mascara all the time. It just feels nice, know what I mean? Ahh, and waterproof mascara is a lifesaver!! You never know when you might start tearing up or happen to be invited to go for a swim 🙂
    Anyways, I loved reading this and I’ve always wanted to give eyelash curlers a go so, nows my chance I guess…… 😉

    1. Ooh yes! It’s funny because I just had my friend raving yesterday about how it really worked for her in just 3 weeks or so! I haven’t tried it out myself but I hear it really works.
      Good luck with it!! Xx🤗

    1. Haha talk about it!! I felt the exact same way too at first😂 but once you see how curly your lashes become I guess it can become addictive? Thanks for reading💕💕

      1. Oh no! Why does it look scary? It is just black eyeliner and I think I have been seeing ads where they have colored eyeliner now. The magnets are so tiny, like if you took a medium pen and made a dash, so they do not feel heavy. Now . . . of course, when I first put them on, they feel weird because — WHOA! I got this big ol’ honking eyelashes on my eye! – but by the time I blink a couple of times they feel fine. And they come off super easy. They are just fun to me.
