What will happen if after applying the eyeshadow and eyeliner you’ve forgotten to add that finishing touch? Part of your eyemakeup is the mascara. It’s one of the magic formula to making the eyes beautiful because it thickens the lashes, darkens and adds length to them which makes your eyes so alluring. After applying the eyeliner, separate the lashes using a thin comb then apply at least two thin even coats of mascara.
If you have short lashes, there are length enhancing mascaras. If you have long lashes already, use a curling mascara instead.
