You’ve been wielding a mascara wand since you were 15. OK, maybe 13. But that doesn’t make you a pro, according to makeup artists Grace Lee and Anastasia Durasova. Read on to permanently change your lash game.
1. Curl first. Take it from the experts — using a traditional clamp eyelash curler after you’ve applied mascara can chop your fringe right off. Ouch. “It’s the biggest lash mistake,” says Lee, who heads Maybelline New York’s artistry team in Canada. “I understand why women like to do this. It really does crank eyelashes up to almost a 90-degree angle and keep them there. But it’s also very dangerous.” Mascara can stick to the pad or metal, and then bam — they’re gone. Curl your lashes first, and then swipe on mascara.
