The makeup world is chock-full of surprises and curveballs, typically in the shape of new trends and techniques. It seems like every minute there is a new technique and beauty term for the already existing beauty routines that give us our fabulous selves. The latest beauty trend is called root-stamping. If you are curious about the fuss, here is an explanation of the new beauty trend.
The purpose of root stamping is to give your lashes some fullness by thickening the root. Stamping the root gives the illusion of liner and makes the base of your lashes look naturally fuller and far more lush. It is also incredibly easy to do and only requires your regular mascara and an extra wand preferably a curved one.
• Apply one-to-two coats of your favorite mascara as you normally would.
• Take your second wand and dip it into your mascara tube. You can use an old mascara wand from a tube you bought recently and didn’t love or you can simply pick up a pack of disposable wands, cut the bristle part off. However, a curved wand will provide more precise stamping.
• For the stamping part, take the stub or curved wand, dip it in your mascara, and, press it at the roots of the upper lash line.
• Starting at the outer corner of your lash line, press the wand against the root of your lashes. Resist the urge to swipe it upward.
• Repeat the stamping movement on the center of the lash line, followed by the inner corner. You want to make sure the entire lash line has been stamped. Feel free to stamp the lash line a few more times, until you get the fullness you want.
• This essentially turns your mascara into an eyeliner but one that blends into the mascara on your lashes, so they look naturally thick and luscious. • Stamp your lower lash line as well, but be gentle when you apply pressure and make sure you only hit the root. Because these lashes are shorter, it is easy to accidentally stamp the whole length of the lash and get mascara on your skin. It works amazingly well.
