Beauty is the subject of so many tips and tricks, but rarely do you see something on mascara tips. We saved it for Valentine’s Day….just because. Beauty that you see on the surface is really very skin deep. True beauty is about being healthy on the inside as well as gorgeous on the outside. There are those that will be attracted to looks first but then find that the personality keeps them there. Hopefully your Valentine’s Day romantic dinner will find you with “both”. This post is to help you appreciate the beauty you have within you already with the simple application of a little thing called mascara.
Mascara Tips & Tricks
- If you have overly round eyes, you can elongate them by adjusting your eyeliner application. The outer two-thirds of your lower and upper lash lines should be lined with a dark black eyeliner. The two lines should meet at the outer corner of each eye. Finally, apply two coats of mascara to your outer upper lashes.
- This is one of the most important mascara tips. For those days when you have skimped on sleep the previous night and it shows in your eyes, skip lining or applying mascara to your lower lash line. Put the focus on your lids and upper lashes, and you are less likely to accentuate dark circles, making you look even more tired. Plus, don’t forget the concealer for “those” days.
- Cover up your greys (if you have brown or black hair). If you are in between trips to your hair stylist and your roots are showing cover them up with mascara (preferably not blue). For lighter colored hair use a little extra hairspray and dust with a gold colored eyeshadow. This will cover up roots until you get your hair colored again.
- To give more definition to your eyes apply mascara. If you only have a few minutes, apply mascara to highlight your eyes. It will look like you have spent more time than you really have getting ready. Adding eye color will only take a few moments, and really completes your look. Dab on the lipstick and out the door you go.
It has been said before that beauty is just skin deep. Your personal beauty regime should focus on making you feel better about yourself. If you use the things written here, you will start to work on all those beautiful things you aren’t showing off.
