Mascara for Beginners ...


Mascara is my absolute favorite makeup to wear and talk about so it’s a pleasure to write this for you!

Let’s talk about what mascara does.

It darkens, thickens and lengthens your lashes which brings attention to your beautiful eyes.2

These 7 steps can help you to find a mascara you love and have the secrets to making the most of it.

1. Take a Close Look at Your Lashes

Before you go mascara shopping you need to take a close look at your lashes.

Figuring out what you need your mascara to do is an important first step.

Do you wish your lashes were longer?

Do you want them to look thicker?

Maybe you just need some help in the color department.

Decide what you want your mascara to do for your lashes.

2. Choose a Color

Mascara comes in bold colors which can be fun.

But most women choose to go for a dark color that could be their true lash color.

Brown, brown-black, black, very black and blackest black are just a few examples of colors you can choose from when it comes to mascara.

This’s a personal choice that’s completely up to you.

Choose what you feel comfortable in.

I’m a blonde but always go for blackest-black because I want my lashes to be a focal point.

3. Finish Your Other Eye Makeup First

Mascara is the last eye makeup you should apply.

Always put on your eyeshadow and eyeliner first, if you wear either of those.2

If you apply mascara first then you’ll undoubtedly mess up your lashes.

Powder from your eyeshadow can spill onto them, killing the effect you’re going for.

Mascara should be the finishing touch.

4. Curl Your Lashes if They Need Lift

Some women are blessed with lashes that naturally curl.

If you are then count your blessings!

For the rest of us, curling is an important step in having the lovely lashes you’re dreaming of.

You always want to curl your lashes before you apply mascara rather than afterward.

Otherwise, you’ll remove part of it while you’re curling.
