How to apply mascara like an expert

by

Cheryl Cole has the most amazing eyes and while we can’t steal her flawless genes, we can steal one of her secret weapons – mascara.

It’s the perfect tool if you want to give your eyes a dramatic, scene-stealing look. However, if it is not applied right you can end up with clumpy and gloopy lashes.

If you want a Cheryl Cole look, follow our guide to applying mascara.

  • Firstly, make sure your mascara is of good quality and hasn’t been sitting in your makeup bag for months.
  • Always start at the root of your lashes. This is where you will create the most volume. Run the wand through your lashes in a zigzag movement from left to right.
  • If you do end up with a few clumps, a lash comb will help separate your lashes. Simply run the comb through after you have applied the mascara.
  • Only apply a second and third coat if your lashes are still wet. If you apply after they have dried you will just end up clumping them even more.
  • To make them appear fuller, draw a thick black line of eyeliner along the lash line.
