You think bottom lashes don’t matter until you meet someone with the most beautiful ones you have ever seen, and suddenly, you feel like you are missing out on a beauty trend. Then you start paying them the same mind as your upper lashes and you wonder why you neglected them. If you badly crave beautiful, bottom lashes that stand out, and add to the beauty in your beauty regiment, read the following tips.
Use waterproof mascara: A waterproof formula is the only way to go; otherwise, you will pay a dear price by way of raccoon eyes. Bottom lashes can touch the under eye concealer and the oil in the product can break down your mascara, leaving you with little spots or smudges under the eye, so be careful. You can also further shield the area by setting it with loose powder.
Use a smaller lash wand: Because you are working with a more congested surface area, having a thinner, more tapered mascara wand will make sweeping from root to tip, and getting those hard-to-reach lashes, easier. A slew of brands have developed mascaras just for this purpose.
Change the way you apply it: Lashes of different shapes and sizes completely change the way your eyes look. So when you are applying mascara, don't just go up and down, but experiment with the ‘diagonal’ method: Pull the brush through at an angle and spend extra time at the corners. It gives you a more wide-eyed look that might be more flattering to the bottom lash line.
Amp things up with false lashes: They can be trickier for bottom lashes, but there is a major payoff. For a natural, fuller-looking bottom lash, you can use individual lashes or clusters without a band.
However, if you want to get full on celebrity style with it, you can use a natural-looking lower lash set (be sure to try out different lengths, amounts of fullness, and arrangements) with clear bands, cutting them in half, and using tweezers to place them as close to the lash line as possible. If you want to lock them in, swipe on one coat of waterproof mascara.
Try brown mascara: If you're not looking for a statement per se, go for a brown-hued mascara on the bottom lashes as it is softer and more flattering up close.
Try layering: Layer waterproof mascara on top of your regular formula to make your mascara last longer and make it easier to remove at the end of the day. Waterproof formula is great at holding the shape and keeping your mascara from smearing throughout the day. However, since it is difficult to remove, try applying your normal mascara first and finishing with a coat of waterproof product.
Use handy tools: Place a spoon below your eye with the curved side facing out, and then apply your mascara like you normally would to your lower lashes. That way, the mascara will land on the back of the spoon rather than your skin. This trick also works when applying mascara on your upper lashes.
