Tip your head right back to apply mascara so you won't catch the skin with the wand. Give your lashes a nice wiggle with the wand from root to tip. Keep the lashes well separated, and take care not to smudge.
It doesn't matter how many silly faces you pull while you do this—I pull lots!
Push the wand upward for a wide-eyed appearance and sweep it outward for a sultry, inviting look. Sometimes you need more than one layer to get the right effect.
Then, tilt your head forward to add a touch of mascara on the lower lashes to really frame eyes.
How about thinking of brown mascara for your softer looks? I think you'll be really happy with the
outcome. I love vibrant mascara colors too. I like to put a coat of black mascara on first and gently touch the ends with the color wand. It looks funky, different and exciting.
