How to Apply Mascara (Exercise Ch 17)

The following items from our Makeup Kit will be used:
• Eyelash Curler
• Mascara
Step 1: Take your eyelash curler and ask your client to open her eyes and look straight ahead.
Step 2: Place the open eyelash curler on her upper eyelashes and squeeze gently for about 10-20 seconds.
Step 3: Take your mascara and lightly dab the lash liner brush against the rim of the mascara. This ensures that there is just the right amount of mascara on your brush.
Step 4: Ask your client to keep her eyes closed. Use your other hand’s thumb and gently lift your client’s eyelid up. Put the mascara brush at the base of the upper eyelid and make zigzag movements till the end of the eyelashes. This movement will prevent her eyelashes from clumping and will give them a fuller look.
Step 5: Repeat this process 2-3 times until you get the desired look.

Step 6: Finally, apply mascara onto her lower lashes. If she does not have a lot of lashes here, then it is best to apply the mascara perpendicular to her eyes and start by running it lightly along her eyelashes. If she has thick eyelashes at the bottom, then you can apply the mascara the same way as you would with the top eyelashes.
Always remember that mascara should only be used to give your eyes a subtle, thick and long-lash look and therefore you mustn’t overdo it. Another important thing to remember is to immediately put your mascara brush back into its container after use, otherwise it can dry out.
