We all have little tips, tricks and random makeup application methods that work for us when applying makeup. Whether it be the type of brush you like to use to apply your foundation, using your fingers to apply certain products or perhaps even the order in which we apply products. Different things work for different people but I wanted to share my top five tips and tricks which I have stuck to for many years and have never let me down.
1. Use two different brand mascaras
I like to use two different brands of mascara when coating my lashes. It sounds strange, but when I use this method, my lashes appear longer, fuller, almost “false” like but not clumpy. I am not sure of the exact reasons as to why my lashes appear this way, but I think the ingredients in the two different brands “react” somehow to give a much fuller effect than using one brand with the same number of coats. I alternate between the two different brands for each coat and probably end up only applying 2 coats of each, sometimes 3 depending on how I feel.
