The 5 Common Mistakes Applying Mascara

Friday, June 07, 2013


When I saw this when I was young, I know that i've done wrongly... 
It’s pretty simple to apply mascara and some of them even applying it for years. Even you don’t have time to put on a full make-up; you’ll still using mascara and other beauty must-have before you heading out of the door. 
So, do you think that you apply your mascara correctly? These are the 5 most common mascara mishaps that you should avoid.

Let It Go
This is the most mistakes we’ve ever done. Mascaras have a shelf life of 3 to 6 months only once you’ve opened it. The germs that grow in old mascaras can cause itchiness and redness right after you applied it. If you can’t remember  when did you get your mascara, toss it.

Pumping It Up
Most of women are tend to be pumping several times before they applying mascara if they feel that their mascara is “almost finish”. But do you know that pumping the wand in and out countlessly of the tube pushes extra air into the tube and causing clumps and flakes. It even dries your mascara faster. Just twist the wand as you pull it out of the tube.

Too Many Coats
I know some of you might hear from other false information that the more layers you apply the thicker and bolder your eye lashes will be. I've heard that too. It’s actually meant to be layered twice. The more you put on, the more likely it will dry mid-application and it’ll going to be clumpy. Stick to one or two coats for natural look unless you’re going for the “Spider lash look”.

Pressing Too Hard
If you press too hard at the base, you’ll get brush marks on your upper lid for sure. Some of us might be heavy handed when applying mascara. If it does happen, use a cotton bud or tip to clean up before it dries out. It’s time for you to get rid of this bad habit.

Exposed Roots

I believe we have the same issue when it comes to this. Neglecting your roots especially for the one have fair hair, your lashes will look shorter than they actually are. The perfect way to apply your mascara is to begin at the root of your lashes. Place the wand at the root and gently wiggle back and forth as you pull the wand towards the tip. 

So if you think that the products are lousy, think of the way you use them first. =)
