How to Get Long Eyelashes With Mascara

I was born with very short, thin eyelashes that were practically invisible without a little bit of help from a tube of mascara. I quickly discovered that not all mascaras were the same and that it takes some skill to apply mascara the correct way.

After a lot of experimentation, I’ve found a few tricks to getting the most length from your mascara as possible. 

Even on days when I go light on the makeup, I never leave home without applying mascara. It makes that much difference, and it really does help me feel more confident.

I may skip the liner and the shadow, but I never skip the mascara. The only time you’ll see me without mascara is when I’m heading to the beach since I haven’t found a mascara that was waterproof enough to handle swimming.

How to apply mascara for long lashes

Here are a few tips you can follow:

  • Begin applying your mascara at the very base of your lashes – as far back as you can actually go.
  • Wiggle the brush slowly back and forth (left and right) and then VERY slowly bring the brush forward to the tip of your lashes.
  • Repeat this step three or four times. Be sure that you put the mascara wand back in the mascara tube between each application to apply more mascara.
  • Be certain that you do this slowly to allow each coat to dry slightly between each application.
  • Move on to the other eye and repeat the same process.
  • Now from the top side of your lashes, do a quick application from the base to the tip. Be sure that you lift up and out rather than down.
