The 10 Commandments of Mascara (Part 2)


Don't be intimidated by its resemblance to a medieval torture device—an eyelash curler can make eyes appear wider and sexier in seconds. "The key is to use it before applying mascara, because the mascara can stick to the curler, causing some lashes to be pulled out," Giordano says. Look into a mirror and lift your chin. 
Squeeze the curler at the roots and hold for three to five seconds, then pulse halfway down the lashes three times—one second per pulse . 


Two coats of lengthening mascara are a quick fix for stubby fringe. Start by squeezing the wand in a paper towel. Apply to one eye, then the other, letting the mascara dry completely before your second swipe. Shimmy the brush into your lash line and swiftly pull it through the lashes. "This rapid, wiggle-slick move separates lashes and makes eyes look bigger,"   

  6. DON'T NEGLECT LOWER LASHES                                

"It's the finishing touch to smoky eyes," says makeup artist Pati Dubroff. "Just don't be too heavy-handed, or the mascara will clump." For a bit of everyday definition, run the tip of the wand lightly along the lower lashes.
