Lash Makeup: How To Use It & How To Wear It

Lash makeup is a great way to take your makeup look to the next level. It makes your eyes pop and emphasizes your eye makeup, drawing attention to your gorgeous eyes and masterful eyeshadow skills. 

ForChic’s has the best lash makeup in the game. We’re going to show you how to use lash makeup for a stunning makeup look, no matter the occasion. 

Let’s start with your natural lashes.

How To Prepare Your Lashes

Gently clean your eyelashes and eyelids before applying makeup to them. Make sure your makeup brushes and tools are clean, too. Once you’ve cleansed your lashes, use an eyelash curler to lift and shape your lashes. 

Start at the root of your eyelash, and gently apply pressure to your lash’s root, center, and tip. Curling your lashes in these three spots helps lengthen your lashes and creates a natural curve. 

Moving On To Mascara

Mascara should be the last step of your makeup routine. Foundation and eyeshadow can accidentally end up in your lashes, so waiting to apply mascara can ensure that stray powder doesn’t ruin your dramatic and dark lashes.

Once you’ve finished the rest of your makeup, grab ForChic’s Better Than Falsies Mascara. Our mascara helps moisturize your eyelashes, promotes eyelash growth, and heals damage from false eyelash glue. 

Apply A Lash Primer

Applying a lash primer before your mascara is a great way to lock in your look. Avoid placing primer on your lash roots, as this can cause clumping. Start applying mascara primer at the middle of your lash, and wiggle your spoolie through the tip of your lash. 

Don’t Pump The Mascara Wand 

Never pump your mascara wand in its tube. Contrary to popular belief, this won’t get more mascara onto your wand, and it may even dry out your mascara more quickly. Instead, twirl the wand while removing it from its tube. Wipe off the excess mascara either on its tube or on a paper towel.

Use A Mirror 

Look straight into the mirror when applying mascara. Place your spoolie in the middle of your eyelashes. Start at the root and work your way to the tip of your eyelashes. You can wiggle the wand back and forth to ensure the mascara gets on all of your lashes.

Coat Your Lashes Carefully 

Once you’ve applied mascara to the middle of your eyes, move to the outer and inner corners. 

Only use the tip of the wand, and wiggle your wand from base to end. With a clean mascara wand, comb your eyelashes before your first coat of mascara dries. Move the wand down then upward to prevent clumping. Finally, apply a second coat.

Pro tip: If you accidentally get mascara on your skin, let it dry completely, then use a clean mascara wand to pick it off lightly.

Tips For Applying Mascara To Bottom Lashes 

Enhance any makeup look by applying mascara to your bottom lashes. This method can make your eyes look more open, but applying bottom lash mascara can be tricky. We’ve included some helpful tips and tricks below:

  • To avoid smudging, tilt your head down and look up into the mirror.
  • Because it’s more challenging to coat your bottom lashes with mascara, hold your wand vertically and carefully move it back and forth.
  • Don’t put your wand back into its tube for more mascara. The less product on your wand while applying bottom lash mascara, the better.
  • Put powder under your eyes to prevent smudging throughout the day.

      Use An Eyelash Serum

      Mascara can help your lashes pop, but you should also use an eyelash serum to help nourish your lashes and promote lash growth. ForChics’s Eyelash Enhancing Serum is an excellent addition to any makeup routine.  

      Just coat your lashes with our serum before you start applying makeup, and put the serum on again after you’ve removed your makeup. Eyelash serums will help moisturize your lashes and encourage growth. Make sure to always apply a serum to clean lashes. Our serum’s even safe to use if you’re wearing lash extensions!

      Consider Eyelash Extensions 

      Lash extensions are a beautiful way to enhance your lashes instantly. Still, you should be careful when using lash extensions. Make sure they’re applied correctly by a professional to avoid damaging your natural lashes. Extensions will last for six to eight weeks if taken care of correctly. After eight weeks, your extensions will naturally shed off.

      Tips While Wearing Eyelash Extensions

      • Don’t wear any eye makeup to your eyelash extension application, including eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara.
      • After your extensions have been applied, don’t wet your lashes for 48 hours. This helps the glue fully dry and bond to your lash. 
      • Switch to oil-free makeup products. Oil can cause your lashes to separate from the extension glue.
      • Use a tight-bristled eyeshadow brush, and make sure you remove the excess shadow from your brush before application. This helps you avoid getting eyeshadow trapped in your lashes.
      • Don’t wear mascara with lash extensions. Using makeup remover on your lash extensions may damage them. 
      • Avoid wearing waterproof makeup around your eyes. Waterproof makeup is even harder to remove, and you should never rub your eyes when you’re wearing extensions. 
      • Try a powder eyeliner. Liquid and cream liners can harm your lash extensions.
      • When you remove your eye makeup, always use an oil-free remover. Wipe your remover up and down instead of back and forth. 
      • Brush your lash extensions. Using a clean mascara wand, gently brush your extensions when you wake up, after you shower, and before bed.
      • Sleep on your back to avoid pulling or tugging on your extensions overnight.
      • Never try to remove eyelash extensions by yourself. Let your extensions naturally shed out, or have them removed by whoever put them on.

        In Conclusion 

        Wearing lash makeup is simple, but these tips and tricks can help keep your lashes beautiful and healthy in the long run. 

        The best ways to extend the lifespan of your lashes are to avoid oil or waterproof makeup, choose an oil-free makeup remover, and never pull on your extensions. 

        Remember that eyelash makeup should be fun. The goal is to feel empowered and help enhance your already beautiful appearance.
