Step 1: Curl lashes & apply eyeliner If you plan to do so, curl your lashes and apply eyeliner before applying any mascara. Step 2: Remove the wand Remove the wand from the tube of mascara and wipe any excess mascara onto the paper towel. Tip Don't pump the wand in and out of the tube—this puts air into the tube and dries out the mascara. Step 3: Hold wand Hold the wand horizontally, parallel with your eyelid, on the underside of your upper lashes. Step 4: Apply mascara Starting at the roots, slowly draw the brush upwards in a zigging, zagging motion. Use just the tip of the wand to define the outer lashes of your eye. Tip Looking straight into a mirror only shows you the tips of your lashes. Hold a hand mirror below your eyes and look down into it to see if your roots are covered. Step 5: Wait for coat to dry Wait at least a minute for the coat to dry. Then add another if needed. Tip If you have light lashes or want a more dramatic look, add a coat of mascara to your bottom lashes. Step 6: Get rid of clumps Before your lashes dry, run an eyelash comb through them to get rid of any clumps. Now bat those beauties at whomever you please. Did You Know? "Modern" mascara was invented in the 1800s and consisted mainly of crushed coal and petroleum jelly.
