I’ve been using this little trick whenever I want to get a quick boost of volume, length and curl out of my mascara for years now … And since all the parties during the holiday season welcome a little extra drama in the eyelash department, I thought I would share the trick with you guys. 🙂 I also use this trick when my mascara starts running out and isn’t working to it’s full potential, or when I’ve purchased a mascara that doesn’t really give me as much volume, curl, and/or length as I want. (This keeps those mediocre mascaras from going to waste!)
For this tutorial, I’m using my Dior Show Mascara … It’s one of my favourite mascaras so when I use it I don’t usually need to use this trick unless I want some really dramatic lashes, but right now mine is running low so this trick helps to give it that extra boost that brings it back to life!
STEP 1: Hold your mascara wand vertically and swipe it back and forth across your lashes … This will help give it a bit of the volume boost. Your lashes will start to look clumpy when you do this but don’t panic …they will get fixed in the next steps.
STEP 2: Swipe your mascara as if you normally would, but do it on the back of your lashes. This will separate the clumps you just made and help to boost the lift and curl.
STEP 3: Use your mascara wand as you normally would … At this point you will instantly see the extra lift curl and volume … it always works like a charm!
This is what the result looked like for me.
