Try bending the wand a little bit. You can bend it at any angle that you feel comfortable with when applying.
Also open your eyes really wide to make them appear bigger and then make a line around your lashes by wiggling your wand gently at the root of your lashes.
Try to comb the eyelashes using the eyelash comb. This helps to control the clumpy lashes when applying the mascara. Combing your lashes right after applying the mascara when its still wet perfects the lashes than combing them when they are dry.
Combining old mascara with a new one actually creates a lovely effect especially that time when you step in the washroom to freshen up. Although not all mascaras goes well together but using thickening mascara first then applying a lengthening one before it goes dry does the trick.
One must always make some research when they are going to purchase a beauty product. First get to know if it will match your skin complexion. Go to beauty shops that offer ‘testers’ before you purchase the product that way you can know what suits you.
