Beauty School: Five Different Lash Looks Using Mascara

There’s a mascara look out there for everyone, and while many of us may opt for a relatively natural looking lash the majority of the time, you can amp things up or change you eye look within the flick of a wand. The question is, what role will your mascara be playing in your beauty aesthetic this autumn? It’s all about tailoring your mascara to your look and layering for a more intense final effect.

So to help you on your way, we can let you in on a little secret… we’ve included a Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in your September GLOSSYBOX! This amazing mascara is so good, it has a cult following. The collagen-fuelled formula thickens and lengthens lashes, and gives them a beautiful, inky-black finish.

Here are 5 different lash looks you can create with it…

The super-curly doll lashseptember-sneak-peek-two-faced-doll-lashesDoll lashes are all about length and curl – so using an eyelash curler is key to amplify the lift and direction of your lashes. Starting at the root apply Two Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara right to the tip in a gentle ‘back and forth’ motion. Repeat this one more time then using the end of the wand, applying a coating to your bottom lashes too.

The natural lashseptember-sneak-peek-two-faced-natural-lashesThe secret to enhancing the natural beauty of your ‘real’ lashes lies in three little words: less is more. For this, you only need one coating of mascara. Starting at the root apply Two Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara right to the tip in a gentle ‘back and forth’ motion.

The feline lashseptember-sneak-peek-two-faced-feline-lashesBy layering more mascara towards the outer corner of your eyes, you can achieve a tapered feline flick effect with your lashes. Simply sweep your Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in delicate outward motions for a smouldering finish.

The max lash
september-sneak-peek-two-faced-max-lashesThe trick here is all in the art of layering – but you have to be careful not to over layer and leave yourself with a clumpy finish. For volume, length, drama and curl, start by applying a coat of Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, working it from root to tip as before. Before you lashes have time to dry, repeat this process another two times, making sure you wiggle the wand right to the root for an intense finish. Add a little mascara to your bottom lashes too.

The punk lashseptember-sneak-peek-two-faced-punk-lashes Clumpy lashes were once a thing to be avoided at all costs, until we were shown how to execute them in a beautifully bold way. Since then, we’ve been clumping to our hearts content. The trick? Use the end of your mascara wand to carefully clump together the ends of your eyelashes for a pointy punk effect.
