Try This!

This is a tip that I heard a while ago yet I don't see many people do it when I watch beauty videos on Youtube.

We all know the heartache of mascara transferring to our eyelids and potentially ruining the eyeshadow work. Bonus tip: if this happens to you wait until the mascara dries then remove the product with a qtip. This usually happens when we're working with a particularly wet formula like the ones from L'Oreal. So what do we do to prevent that? Apply mascara to our lower lashes first.

Many moons ago, the international trainer at a M.A.C In Mode class I attended made reference to the "mascara face". He said: "stick your booty out, tilt your head back, open your mouth and make that mascara face". 😂 Whether that was just for dramatic effect I dunno but I do know that the combination of applying mascara to my lower lashes first plus slightly tilting my head back while applying to my upper lashes has greatly decreased my mascara mishaps.
