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?
