My Mascara Tips for Big Lashes

WARNING: You might get an overload of my face after reading this post. I am so sorry.

I always have people ask me if my eyelashes are real or what kinda of mascara I use!  The answers…

My eyelashes are real and I use Cover Girl Professional – Super Thick Lash Mascara… (it’s their cheapest one and it’s in a red bottle that is usually at the bottom of the displays. Be sure not to get waterproof mascara.) I love this mascara because it still uses the traditional brush and not one of those weird silicon spikey brushes.

What I wish I could tell everyone when they ask is how I put it on! I think that is the real trick to my lashes… so I am going to tell you all!

That’s me on the left with no mascara on. Unrecognizable, I know. Kinda scary with blonde eyelashes. And then that’s me on the right after I put my mascara on!  Yay, much better!


Step 1: Mascara first!  Apply mascara before you put on concealer, eyeshadow, bronzer or blush!  You are going to get the mascara all over your eyelids…and I mean all over… don’t worry!  You can easily clean it up with a Ponds Make Up wipe.

Step 2:  Start applying the mascara. Quite a few coats.


Step 3:  THE TRICK IS TO GET RIGHT DOWN TO THE BASE OF THE LASHES!  That way you can really lift up those lashes.


You really can’t get down to the root to lift up the lashes without getting it everywhere!

Step 4:  Then wait a minute or two, until the mascara has dried a little.  You don’t want it to be wet but you don’t want it to be fully dried.  Touch it first and if its too wet don’t do it.  It’s kinda like a Goldilocks thing… Not too wet, not too dry… Just right.

Then take your little finger and spread out your lashes.  Getting to the root – pushing them up and then spreading them out.  A little bit of the mascara will come off on your finger, but that is good!  You don’t want too much mascara on or soooo many layers that it looks clumpy.


Step 5:  Now, apply a few more coats of mascara.  This time, really focusing on the tips of your lashes.


Step 6:  Wait another minute and then spread them out again.  (You can repeat these steps again, if you want them even bigger!)

Step 7:  You want to make sure the mascara on your lashes is fully dry before you wipe away the unwanted mascara.  Now, take your make up wipe and wipe away all the mascara around your eyes!


See, all clean!  And now you can put on the rest of your make up!


Not too crazy or hard!  Let me know if you try it and if it works for you!
