For many redheads with blonde lashes, it can be difficult to throw on a layer of mascara without worrying how it looks. A few swipes over light eyelashes may look as though your lashes are floating away from your eyelid. No one wants that! Next time you’re applying mascara on your blonde eyelashes, follow these steps. Your eyes are sure to look bigger and will pop.
1. Pick the Best Mascara for You
For best results, pick a mascara with short bristles. The shorter they are, the easier it is to get into those hard to reach places. For instance, the ‘redhead friendly’ Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara has short bristles perfect for this reason.
2. Either Brown or Black
Opt for a brown or black mascara, or even try black on the top and brown on the bottom. It’s all about your personality. Do what makes you feel the most comfortable.
3. How to Properly Apply Mascara:
Step 1: Wiggle the wand left to right at the base of lashes. Remember: It’s the mascara placed near the roots, not the tips, that gives the illusion of length and thickness.
Step 2: Pull the wand up and through lashes, wiggling as you go. The wiggling part is key because it separates lashes and coats every lash with mascara.
Step 3: This step is optional as many people accomplish this step in #1 & #2. Close the eye and place the mascara wand on top of lashes at the base and pull through to remove any clumps. You will also be able to reach any blonde areas you have missed.
Step 4: After the coat is dry, reapply as necessary for extra thickness and length.
