The Benefit of using Multiple Mascaras
If you saw my Mascara Cocktail post a couple of months back you might be wondering why on earth I often use 4 mascaras together. I didn’t really go into much detail of why I sometimes do, or the benefits I gain from it, or why it doesn’t look overdramatic or clumpy, so I thought I’d share the benefit of using multiple mascaras and give you a few tips to avoid it clumping too!
In our makeup routine, we use multiples of most things all the time, concealer, eyeshadow, even powders. So why aren’t we all using multiple mascara’s? It may seem a little daunting to apply ‘so much’ mascara, but trust me, as soon as you get the hang of it, you won’t be able to go back to just one.
The benefit of using a cocktail of mascaras is pretty simple. You can get it all. Most mascaras only do 1 thing, which is either curl, volumise or add length. So, if you use the best curling mascara(I recommend Maybelline Lash Sensational), with one that adds a good amount of volume, and one to add a bit of length you’ll get it all. But then how do you avoid them going clumpy? – Supershock mascara.
I never do my mascara without using Avons Supershock, even if I’m not going all out using multiple mascaras, but it is an absolute must for my mascara cocktail. I use it first to spread out my lashes, and set them ready for the other mascaras. Once all my mascara is applied, straight away, while it’s still wet, I’ll go in again with my supershock, making the wiggle movement to spread out my lashes again and remove any clumps. Then I’m all done, and my lashes are long, curled, fanned out and voluminous.
But, there is a few things you need to remember when using a cocktail of mascara.
– Make sure to wipe of excess on a tissue, or your lashes could clump together instantly, especially if your mascara is new.
– Don’t always work from the lash line, this could cause too much build up at the bottom, start your lengthening mascara mid way up your lashes & go right to the end.
– Only use the lengthening mascara on your bottom lashes just to make them stand out.
– Don’t go in too heavy handed with each mascara, remember how much you’re applying.
– Find what works best for you. I find if I leave any of the mascaras, other than the
supershock, to dry, it’s extremely hard to add a coat of a different mascara.
& Remember you don’t have to use this many mascaras all the time, 2 can be just as perfect!
