 How to Apply Mascara

There are 4 types of mascara on the market:
1. Waterproof mascara that has to be removed with eye make-up remover.
2. Translucent mascara has no color at all and is used to highlight already thick
lashes. This mascara can also be used when you do make-up for men.
3. Lash-building mascara already has lash thickener in it.
4. With block-type mascara, you must add water to create the perfect texture.

Steps in brief:
1. Apply lash thickener before your mascara. This lash thickener has a white
silicone texture and will become translucent after about 5 minutes.
2. Choose mascara that will complement the make-up that you have used on
yourself / your client. Brown or black mascara is the most common colors.
3. When applying mascara on your client, let her close her eyes and then take her
eyelid in a “grip”. Apply the mascara in zigzag movements.
4. One coat is perfectly fine, but you can apply two coats.
5. Take your eyebrow brush and comb gently through your / your client’s eyelashes,
making sure that you separate each eyelash from the other.
6. For smudged mascara take a wet cotton bud and gently wipe it over the areas that
need correction.
