For most women applying mascara is a no brainer – find one you like, give your lashes a few quick swipes and off you go. But apparently this process should be a lot more labour intensive than you’d think.
According to Allure, using just a couple of layers of mascara applies nowhere near enough product to achieve the volumising and lengthening effects you’ve been promised.
Makeup artist Amy Nadine claims it takes exactly 30 strokes per eye to get lashes on fleek and the technique used to apply the mascara shouldn’t exactly be haphazard either.
Amy told Allure the stokes should not be long and precise and that instead you should use “quick brisk strokes” when putting on this product.
Given that she’s recommending 60 strokes per day, they’d want to be pretty brisk indeed.

Up until now, the cosmetic procedures used to remove wrinkles have had temporary side effects. However, new research shows that cosmetic fillers can now cause irreversible damage.
U.S scientist found that injections of fat and collagen into the forehead can lead to permanent blindness when fillers get into the blood vessels.
According to Dr. Michelle Carle from Los Angeles, complication during a procedure like this is very rare, but also ‘very significant’.
Dr Carle and her team studied three cases of patients who were left with impaired vision after treatment.In these cases, the injections interfered with the blood supply to the patients’ eye artery.
“We recommend that blindness or significant visual loss be added as a risk when discussing these procedures with patients, because these are devastating consequences,” she said.
There are also reports of patience suffering a stroke and even dying after cosmetic procedures.
