Excess mascara

Wipe on a tissue before applying. This will keep the lashes from clumping, and ensures product is even.

Thicker-looking lashes

Coat both sides of your lashes and then look down when you apply to the top, and then up to apply to the bottom side.

For volume

Hold your wand horizontally and brush the brows back and forth for volume. Holding the wand vertically and moving the tip on individual lashes gives a natural finish.

Banish raccoon eyes

Simply place a teaspoon just beneath your bottom lashes when applying mascara to the bottom eyelash.

Perfect your mascara

Allow your mascara to dry first then use an cotton bud to gently lift any excess product that has fallen onto your skin. When your mascara is left to dry, it doesn’t smudge like it does when it's still wet.

Clump-free lashes

By running a clean wand through your lashes after application, it will ensure even application and no clumps.

Applying false lashes

It's easy than you think. All you need to do is lay the mirror on a flat surface and look down into it. This ensures that your eyes are perfectly open during application and you will also have both hands free to use. It also allows for better and more accurate technique.
