Extra Lashes Hidden in Plain Sight!

We all know mascara can make the most of even the skimpiest lashes, but try this tip to discover lashes you may not even know you have!

First, raise your chin and look down into the mirror. Apply mascara to your top lashes, wiggling the brush slightly from left to right as you go. This works the mascara wand into your lashes, so you're more likely to coat each lash. Then, place the wand on the top side of your lashes (instead of coming from underneath them as you normally would) and twist the wand up toward your lid, as if you were curling your lashes back with a mini curling iron. Finish with another stroke from underneath (don't forget to wiggle).

Granted, this method takes a bit of practice, but once you discover those added lashes, it's hard to go back to doing it the old way.

Oh, and by the way, don't feel shy about using black mascara. Lashes are such a minuscule part of your overall face that almost everyone can get away with the little bit of extra color. The only time I ever use brown mascara is on someone with blond or red lashes.

Ash & everyone,

I've been doing this for years, but you learn new things every day: I recently realized that it's easier to do the top side of the lashes by just laying the wand on them and brushing down- no fancy twist of the wrist is necessary. Hope this helps!
