What if we tell you that you can get maximum volume and length with the very same mascara you’re currently using? .
We stumbled upon this article on Byrdie about this mascara hack that changed her lash game, thanks to a video by Beauty Youtuber Aly Art. In the video, Aly shows just how much of a difference this hack makes by doing it on one eye and not on the other. It’s the same mascara on both eyes, but with a drastically different finish!
For us girls who aren’t blessed with long thick lashes, this trick is mighty useful. We normally wear mascaras from the roots to the tip of the lashes, but according to Aly, you should do your tips first then your roots. How?
It’s all in the technique! P.S. This tio works best if your mascara has a thick straight brush with thick bristles like the Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara, (RM15.90) . Now when you take out the wand, make sure to scrape one side of the brush on the side of the container. This means you’ll have one side of the brush with loads of mascara and the other with none.
Step 1: When you take out the wand, make sure to scrape one side of the brush on the side of the container. This means you’ll have one side of the brush with loads of mascara and the other with none.
Step 2: Using the side of the brush with the ample amount of mascara, comb through the tip of your top and bottom lashes. It might look clumpy now but don’t be alarmed!
Step 3: Now with the cleaner side, brush it over from the root to the tip. This method will ensure that you get longer and thicker lashes without all the clumpy mess. You can go in for a second round with the same method if you want even more volume for that va-va-voom look! Alternatively, you can use a clean spoolie or old mascara wand to comb through your mascara once it’s been applied.
