Creating an ‘Eyelash Extension Look’ using Mascara

It looks like you’ve got your lashes done, but it’s mascara. Yeah, you read that right. This is a guide to looking like you’ve got the most expensive eyelash extensions on the market done, but it’s just mascara applied in our unique way. How wonderful is that, ladies?! Let’s get started immediately! Those who’ve spent bucks and time and patience on getting eyelash extensions will value this piece even more.
Airily brush them up

Sweep the wand without applying pressure from the roots to the tips to cover all the lashes with mascara evenly. Always begin from the middle of the lash line and then work on the ends to ensure no hair is left uncovered.
Use the tip to push lashes up for a curling effect

To curl them up, place your wand in a vertical position and, just like step 1, softly do it upwards using the tip only. MICA Beauty’s Volumizing Black Mascara is an excellent choice!
Apply pressure in the combing now

With the pressure, you regularly use, bring the wand under your lash line and comb through it. This will coat them better. To make the lashes look fuller, softly press the wand under the roots of your lashes so that the pigment reaches the lash line making it look densely lined.
Working on the lower lash line now

We must be careful here because the lashes are at their finest on the lower line. Before gliding along the length, bobble the wand onto these fine lashes to give them a pop of pigment. Now sweep in downward motion to separate and lengthen them. Do not take the mascara wand too deep; work with the bristles.
Step no. 2, 3, and 4 again

Repeat the wand movements mentioned in steps 2, 3, and 4 until you’re satisfied with how your lashes look.

It is important to note here that for this tutorial, a drier formula mascara is to be used as a formula that is too wet, dries quickly, and doesn’t allow this much maneuvering to be done using it.
Ahh! Now the time has come to clean up the mess you’ve created trying to pretty your lashes. No matter how much you try, there’s always going to be a pinprick under the eye, smudge on the lid, or a speck on the bridge of the nose. This is to tell you we ALL experience that. Makeup remover eye pads come in handy at this point. For precise cleaning, an eraser pen could also be used. Happy cleaning!
