Q: Is there a proper way to apply mascara?

A: I get asked this question frequently. My “wiggle method” has three can’t-mess-it-up steps to apply mascara for a simple, everyday application that’s quick and easy-peasy.

  1. Wiggle the mascara wand from left to right at the base of your lashes.
  2. Pull the wand up and through the lashes and wiggle as you go. Wiggling will separate the lashes.
  3. After you apply mascara, close your eyes and place mascara wand on the top of your lashes at the base and pull through to remove clumps (no wiggling this time!).

Now, if you want a more daring look for a night out on the town that lasts ‘till dawn,….take your mouse and click here to find out how to glam up those peepers with the swish of your wand!
