How to Apply Mascara Like a Pro (Best Beginner Tutorial)

Thick lashes add drama and intensity to your eyes. If you know how to apply mascara, you can achieve this look with ease. Makeup enthusiasts and experts alike know that a swipe or two of mascara can significantly affect the length and volume of lashes, giving you a stunning look. But beginners need help with the application process, and we’re here to help. Swipe up to find out more!

Step 1: Start with clean eyes and lashes

Make sure there are no traces of makeup on the lashes. A clean substrate is always good to prevent clumping.

Step 2: Curl your eyelashes

Looking straight ahead, hold the eyelash curler at the base of the lashes (but not too close). Now look down and gently press on the lashes. Repeat 3 times while moving towards the tip of the lashes. Depending on your needs, you can choose black or brown for the application.


Tips: Another way to curl your eyelashes is to place your index finger at the base of your eyelashes, look down and hold for 6 seconds. Do this if you are uncomfortable using an eyelash curler.

Step 3: Start in the middle

Open the mascara tube and wipe off the excess product with the applicator. Look directly in the mirror and place the applicator at the base of the lashes. Sweep the applicator up to coat your lashes from root to tip. You can “wiggle” the applicator to ensure it evenly coats the lashes.

Step 4: Go to the corners

Now comes the tricky part: coat the corners of your eyes. Use the applicator tip to cover the corners of the lashes. Coat them evenly from root to tip. This will prevent the mascara from smudging or transferring.

Step 5: Use a clean spoolie brush to prevent clumping

Using a spoolie brush or lash comb, comb your lashes down and then up to prevent clumping. Do this before the first coat of mascara has completely dried.

Step 6: Apply a second coat

Follow the same technique to apply a second coat of mascara.
