They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. If that’s true, then it can’t hurt to have the prettiest windows possible. To keep my look fresh, I regularly wear mascara. A coat or two can make such a big difference in your overall look. Did you know that there’s a right and a wrong way to apply mascara? As always, I’m here to help. Check out my tips to getting it right every time.

1) Decide which type of mascara you want to apply. Some mascaras lengthen while others thicken. If you want to add an extra punch, apply one coat of thickening mascara followed by another coat of a lengthening formula.
2) Starting at the base of your lashes, wiggle your brush and pull through to the tips of your lashes. Wiggling your wand will help to ensure an even coat and will create more volume.
3) Wait a few seconds and apply a second coat.
4) Run your wand over the tips of your lashes. Generally, the tips of the lashes aren’t totally covered by mascara so an extra swipe on the edges makes them look even longer.
