BEAUTY TIP: How to apply Mascara...

Start by applying mascara only to the top lashes. That may be enough, especially if you're prone to smudging. If you like to wear it on both the top and bottom fringe, apply to the bottom lashes first.

So, how do we apply mascara in such a way that it will make our eyes pop and be more beautiful instead of making us look like a panda or worse, hit by Manny Pacquiao?

Here are the steps:

1. First, wipe off the mascara wand with a tissue or against the sides of the tube so that the mascara won't clump on your lashes.

2. Roll out the want on your lashes from the base to the ends. Start with the middle lashes, then apply to the lashes on each side. (you can also wiggle the wand from the base of your lashes going up)

3. Let one coat dry for about 30 seconds before applying another coat

4. After applying, brush through your lashes with an old toothbrush or an eyelash comb.

Tip: If your want to make your eyes look like they're set farther apart, apply the mascara slightly diagonally and outward, toward the outer corner of your eyes.

goodness, except for #1, I don't do the rest. I change mascaras so often to see which one I'd like. I like Maybelline Full n Soft so far, and the best way to avoid the clumping for me is to apply not from/close to the base of the eyelashes, but at the middle. Works well.
