3 mascara secrets that take your lashes to the next level

You already know how to apply mascara like a pro. Now, upgrade your lash game even further with three speedy, eye-enhancing hacks that add volume and length in seconds. Here’s how…                                                                               

1. Go vertical

Switch up the standard wiggle-and-glide technique by adding one final, lash-lengthening step: hold your mascara vertically and push it up into the tips of your eyelashes.

This quick trick means you’ll never miss the very ends of your lashes, so the strands will look longer, bolder and fully fanned-out for a more extreme effect.

2. Work from above

If you’re all about volume, first you need a thickening mascara. We love Scandaleyes Reloaded, £6.99, because the max-density brush captures every eyelash.

Then, try this: after gliding the mascara underneath your lashes, make them look even thicker by gently coating them from the top. The finish will be ultra-intense.

3. Remove with ease

Rubbing your lids to remove mascara isn’t good for your eyelashes, so focus on keeping condition intact by going for a formula that’s easy to remove.

Scandaleyes Reloaded, £6.99, is smudge-proof, sweat-proof, and lasts for 24 hours – but it also removes with warm water, so you don’t need to rub your eyes.

Now you know the mascara secrets, use them to apply a sultry smoky eye. Click here for a look that will really get your lashes noticed.
