A great mascara tip

A lovely man at YSL taught me a great mascara trick recently. The best thing is that it's really easy to do. In the pictures I've used the trick on the left side and I've done the right side the way I'd normally do my mascara. In the photo's the difference isn't as obvious but in real life it makes a huge difference.

This is how it works. Apply the mascara as normal, holding the wand horizontally. Once you've done that, turn the wand so it's vertical and go over all your lashes again, paying particular attention to the ones on the very inside and very outside of your eyes.

That's it. How easy it that. When I apply my mascara like this it make my eye lashes look a lot fuller and somehow more curled. Amazing.

  2. Wow that really does make a difference! When you say you hold it vertically and apply it do you mean hole the brush vertically but still apply it in a sweeping motion up and sideways or just use the tip to apply? Sorry i'm not being really clear, it's hard to describe!

  3. Let me know how it works for you Gaby!

    Lillian, when I hold the wand vertically I apply the mascara with the tip in an upwards motion. Does that make sense? It's so difficult to explain :)

  4. great tip. I saw this tip on a QVC makeup show, and it really does work. I have remembered us this technique recently.

  5. Thanks for the great tip. To be honest I didn't think it would be very noticable because I am pretty fussy when it comes to putting on my mascara and I thought I was getting the most out of it but WOW it really works.

  6. I was totally surprised that this worked too, if the m/a hadn't shown me I wouldn't have believed it. He did an even better job than I did in the photo's. When he'd finished I looked like I was wearing false lashes.

  7. Dude, this makes your lashes look awesome! I tried doing it today though, and it didn't work because the mascara I'm using has a weird wand LOL D:

  9. Thanks for your explications on the tip for the sheer eyeshadows. I've heard about the eyeliner tip before, but I haven't tried it for myself. (=

  12. That is a great tip actually. And when you move the wand vertically, move it sideways towards your outer corner. That is supposed the give the illusion of longer lashes.
