How to Layer Mascara Using Drugstore Mascaras

Hey Guys!

I wanted to do this quick how-to video on how I layer my mascara. Whenever I go out, family, friends, and even strangers always ask me how I layer my mascara, or how I apply mascara in general… Soooo I thought this would be a great video for you guys to see!

Whether you’re layering mascara, or you’re just using one mascara, HOW you apply it, plays a large role in how dark, long, and thick your lashes are going to be. Im a HUGE mascara fan! I think if I was stranded on an island and was only allowed one make up item, I’d definitely choose mascara. Mascara really opens up your eyes and just makes life so ahhhhhhhhh :) haha

So like I was saying, the way you apply your mascara plays a really really big roll. I noticed that a lot of people apply the mascara by just running the wand through the lashes and thats it. The trick to getting your thickest longest lashes, is applying the mascara from the roots/base of your lashes and wiggling and blinking so the wand gets stuck in the lash hairs (kind of like combing your head hair) so the mascara really sticks onto the lashes.

I made up a terrible song as you heard in the video that goes “wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle blink.. yeaaa” and honestly, i sing this everytime i apply mascara haha usually in my head so my husband doesnt think he married a nut case hahaha

Like I said in the video, this is NOT a sponsored video, but I just wanted to show you guys how MUCH i love these two mascaras together. Ive tried almost EVERY drugstore mascara, and nothing compares to how my lashes look when I use these two together. They really are Batman and Robin of mascara! \

For the first coat, I like to use the Loreal Carbon Black Voluminous Mascara.. This mascara is awesome because it makes your lashes really dark and thick and voluminous. I like to just get as much product as I can onto my lashes when I apply this mascara.

I let this mascara dry for about 30 seconds until it becomes a little tacky. THIS is the key to applying two coats of mascara and layering your mascara.

Once the mascara is tacky, I like to use the Loreal False Fiber Lashes as my second coat. This mascara is HEAVEN! I love how it has little lash fibers inside of the mascara so when you apply it, it coats your lashes with fibers and makes them thicker and longer and juicier and just amazing!!!! The reason I like to use this as a second coat, instead of a first coat, is because I find it doesnt make my lashes as dark as Id like. But when pairing it with the carbon black, its like the best recipe EVER! So once the first coat gets tacky, apply this mascara and the youll notice the fibers attaching to your lashes. You will fall in love. LOVE!

I hope you guys enjoyed that quick little “how to” video! Let me know if youd like to see some more of these basic how-to’s!

Have an amazing week! Im off to the mall with my sister! What are you up to today or any special plans for the weekend?

Besos! <3 Farah

  3. Erica says

    Hey, my eyelashes are the weirdest. when they naturally look down, like straight down, when i close my eyes they touch my face!!! It’s so sadd… can u do a video on how to curl lashes (not with a curler) or a way I can get them to stay curled permanently. i curl them with a menthol cap (not with menthol) and it lasts me rather than when I use a curler but if it rains …. there goes my curled lashes …. and if i apply mascara they start to go back to their original state ….. HELLLPPP pLLLLZZZ!!!

    • FARAH says

      my husbands lashes are the same! yes of course i can show a way to curl lashes :) the bestttt is to use somethin thats heated so it really makes the curl last! menthol cap is so smart!!! I will definitly make a video for that!! xo

  4. Veronica says

    I love your lashes. I have long eyelashes also and I use the Vaseline at night. When I”m applying mascara my lashed curled in or out and I don’t know why. I only curled my lashed once.. Is it possible for my lashes to be straight?

    • FARAH says

      thank you sweetheart!!! the vaseline trick is awesome!! what do you mean your lashes curl in or out? sometimes eyelashes curlers can make your eyelashes kinky if you dont use them right :) ur lashes could possibly be straight :) xo

  11. Reesa says

    Hi farah!
    Gorgeous as always!!!! Can you list all the foundations and concealers (if any) you use in one list pls? Btw would loveee a video on your moisturizers, skin care routine etc. I know you did the under eye and hair tutorials but a head to toe would be awesome?

  12. Isabel says

    Hi FARAH!(((:
    Question!? my eyelashes are straight down and if I apply this mascara would my eyelashes go back down, even though I curled them??

  13. Rachel says

    Hi, I recently started watching videos on ” how to make-up” trutorials and fell in love with yours. You have beautiful hair eyelashes lips and skin. But, what really caught my attention was the lip trick you do. My lips are somewhat like that, their pinkish with a dark discoloration. Yet still it never crossed my mind to cover it with a base or whatever it’s called. I’m a beginner so you can bet your last dollar your videos became movie night. Lol

  14. Brittany says

    You have the most amazing eyelashes I’ve ever seen. At night I’ve started using olive oil on my lashline. My left eyelashes are taking to it well, but right ones aren’t growing and it looks weird!

  15. Jazmyn says

    How long are your eyelashes 0.0 ? Mine are very long but I dont feel like anything compared to yours :) You can measure your eyelashes XD sounds silly right? >.> I’ve watched this video over a thousand plus times and now I feel like I dont deserve to wear mascara lol xo Love you Farah. You make me want to pay more attention to how I look and see myself. Not in a bad way in a positive. I’ve been watching you for almost 2 years now. You have changed my confidence very much over the past year C: Dont stop what you do!! <3 :D

  16. Paulina says

    hello beauty, my name is Paulina and i’m your fan, the first video that i saw from you was the tutorial how cut your hair and the video is so good and very detail that when i tried to make my own hair after following every step in your video, when i done, my hair cut was amazing, and that was the first time that i cut my own hair, after that, i follow every step that you suggest in your videos.

    I need some help with my eyelashes. I bought the Batman and Robin mascaras “L’oreal voluminous carbon black and Voluminous False Fiber Lashes”, and they work good my eyelashes looks really big, but i don’t have natural curly eyelashes so i curly them first and then i apply the mascara, like you show in your video, but when i apply the mascara my eyelashes fall down. Do you have somo solution for help me i’ll love to see my eyelashes bigs and curls.

    Thanks darling xoxoxo.
