9 Easy Mascara Hacks for Amazing Lashes

Get carded.

Lashes look their fattest when the mascara goes all the way down to the roots. Trouble is, it’s hard to get it there without getting black gunk all over your lids. To combat this, take a business card and hold it at the base of your lashes, then swipe on mascara. The excess will end up on the card, not on you.

Baby your lashes.

Just like the hair on your head, your lashes need to be conditioned. To do this, you can take the time to swipe on a special lash gel every night, or you can multitask by using a mascara with conditioning agents already built in. Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara is infused with argan oil, coconut oil, and vitamin E to keep lashes soft and healthy, while adding dramatic color and length at the same time.

Bulk up your base.

Create the illusion of a thicker lashline by tracing the inner rims of the upper lids with black eyeliner. Our pick: Avon True Color Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black. 

Revive old mascara.

To avoid eye infections (and dry, hard-to-use mascara), we highly recommend replacing your tube every three months. If your mascara gets gunky before that time though, blast the outside of the tube with a blow dryer for 10 seconds to temporarily thin it out and make it easier to apply.

Go vertical.

After swiping on your mascara normally, try holding your wand vertically and touching the tip of the brush to each individual lash. This takes just seconds, but adds tons of extra length.

Curl without a curler.

If you don’t have an eyelash curler handy, try pressing a spoon against your eyes for a few seconds before applying mascara. The curvature of the spoon will cause lashes to gently bend. For an even easier, stealth-like method, choose a mascara formula that actually curls on its own! Avon True Color Wide Awake Mascara has a specially engineered hourglass brush that curls lashes as you swipe, plus a “lift and lock” formula that helps them stay that way for hours.

Stop clumps before they start.

After pulling your wand from the tube, take a clean tissue and wipe off any big globs of product. Removing the excess before you start swiping means it won’t end up on your lashes!

Powder your way to bolder lashes.

Apply one coat of mascara, then brush translucent face powder (yes, really!) on top. Finish with another coat of mascara to lock it in. The powder adds heft and length. It’s an old makeup artist trick—and it totally works!

Customize your lash look.

The eyeshadow color you choose can make a big difference in how your lashes look. With lighter shades, your lashes will be visible from root to tip, so they’ll automatically look longer. If you’d like them to look thicker, use a darker eyeshadow along the lashline. This tricks the eye into thinking your lashes are thicker than they really are. (Sneaky, right?) To experiment on your own, choose a kit packed with multiple light and dark shades like Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette.
