Tip Tuesday Mascara Application

Do you ever apply your mascara, and as as you look upwards for that final sweep of your bottom lash thinking you have completed  your look, you peek in the mirror to see you have in fact managed to cover your upper eyelid in mascara since your top lashes weren’t quite dry?

Well to keep today’s Tip short and sweet, apply mascara to your bottom lash first! Honestly, I’ve been applying my mascara this way for years, such a simple change but I’ve never smudged it, or ended up with an eyelid full of mascara since. Give it a go and see what you think.

If you have any suggestions for tips you’d like to read about, let us know in the comments below!

Totally hellbent for perfect mascara application every time

    I’ve never actually smudged onto my eyelid, I normally just poke myself in the eye. Damn having no depth perception without my glasses sucks.

    Hmm, I’ll have to try this! Mascara on my eye lid is a problem I have a lot. I’ve found that scraping some of the mascara back into the tube can help as well. I hate when I try to be so careful and I still get some annoying little specs above my eye liner :(

      I’ve been hooked from the first moment I tried this! I used to have this problem all the time, especially if I was in a hurry.
