Mascara is a tricky thing to apply in a flattering and natural way. My philosophy is less is more when it comes to the lengthening product. Here’s how I apply mascara in a way that doesn’t make my eyelashes look false or unnatural.
What You’ll Need
A variation is to curl your lashes first. While I like the look of a curled lash, I’ve had experience with lash breakage as a result of curling. So if you choose to curl, be careful! Some people swear by curling. Me? Not so much. (Video by Xteener on how to curl your lashes.)
Apply clear mascara. You have two options:
1) Apply clear mascara to your entire lash. If you choose this method, do one eye at a time. Then proceed to step two before the clear mascara dries. While it doesn’t necessarily look like mascara, once it dries it will feel like mascara so move quick.
2) Apply clear mascara to about half your eyelash measured from root to about half way to the tip. Then apply black mascara only to the tips where you have not applied clear mascara.
Apply black or brown mascara to the tips of of your lashes.
Step Three: Comb your lashes with your lash brush until you obtain a natural look that isn’t clumpy.

That’s it! You’re finished and now you have a natural looking eye with mascara. Once you’re done, always look at your makeup from far away so you can tell how it really looks. No one is ever going to be up in your eye except an optometrist or makeup artist.
