How to apply Mascara

Firstly, apply all your other makeup. This includes foundation, eye shadow, eyeliner, etc. If you worry about getting mascara on your eyeliner, you can stick a business card behind your eyelashes to prevent smudging. 

Optionally, curl your eyelashes for extra length before you put mascara on.2

Open the mascara. Rub the end of the mascara applicator on the inside rim of the mascara tube to get excess off.

Position yourself comfortably in front of a mirror. Lean your dominant elbow on a firm surface. With a steady hand, place the mascara wand at the root of your eyelashes. Gently pull the wand up to the end of your lashes, slightly jarring the wand back and forth to separate the lashes and prevent clumps. Repeat across your eyelashes, making sure to get every lash.
Use a lash comb. Place the comb at the lash roots, and gently pull up through the lashes. Do this before the mascara has had a chance to dry, otherwise the mascara will flake off into your eyes and down your cheek.5
Hold the mascara wand vertical. Lightly run it along your upper and lower eyelashes to add slight color to them.
Remove any mascara smudges with makeup remover. Place a cotton bud on the top of the smudge, and gently rotate in place until it comes off. User your finger to blend your eye shadow back in.
