Is there anyone out there who isn’t on the lookout for the latest and greatest mascara? It makes sense that you’d be on the search for a little more length or a touch more volume, depending on how your lashes look sans any makeup. Of course, a mascara that offers both volume and length might seem like a mythical unicorn (meaning, you probably don’t think it actually exists). But we’re here to tell you that it’s real! Here, learn about our best mascara to use for the appearance of volume and length and get tips for applying it to your lashes.
If you’re looking for a mascara that helps add the appearance of both volume and length, look no further than the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara, which is also available in a waterproof formula. The mascara features a smooth glide formula that provides silky-looking volume in one coat, as well as the look of length. Plus, the soft wavy brush helps capture every lash.
Here’s a refresher on applying your mascara for a dramatic lash look.
Step 1: Curl your lashes. You know your mascara can handle giving your lashes the appearance of volume and length, but what about some serious curl? That’s a job for a lash curler. While your lashes are completely bare, break out your curler. Open the curler and place your upper lashes between the clamps, as close to your lash line as possible (without pinching!). Gently clamp down on your lashes, squeezing for a few seconds before you release. Repeat the process twice, one towards the center of your lashes, and again near the tips for a full, voluminous-looking curl.
Step 2: Apply primer. It’s prime time. Primers aren’t just for your face or your eyelids—a lash prime can help to improve the performance of your mascara. Coat your lashes with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Primer before reaching for your tube of L’Oréal Paris mascara.
Step 3: Sweep on mascara. Now we’re ready to use the star of the show—the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara! Place the brush at the base of your lashes and pull up, all the way to the ends. Wiggle the brush as you go to completely coat your lashes.
Step 4: Coat your bottom lashes. Don’t sit your mascara wand down just yet. Your bottom lashes deserve a little attention, too. Darken the tiny hairs with the same mascara to add a little extra emphasis to your eyes.
Mascara is important—no doubt—but that’s not all it takes to create a stunning eye look. Top things off by following the below eye makeup tutorial.
Step 1: Add eye shadow. Your eye look is missing something…but what? Oh right, eye shadow! Brush a wash of neutral color onto your lids to help add definition to your eyes—and instantly look like you put much more effort into your makeup. Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow , which comes in a wide variety of suitable shades.
Step 2: Tightline. For a bolder eye and fuller-looking lashes, create an “invisible eyeliner” effect by tightlining your eyes. Tightlining requires pulling up gently (seriously, so gentle!) on your eyelid to expose the upper waterline, where the base of your lashes are. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Black to match your mascara. Carefully apply the product directly on the base of the lashes, filling in any gaps between individual hairs. Tightlining can also serve as a quick trick for lining your lower waterline—without added effort. After applying liner on the upper waterline, firmly close your eyes right away. Open your eyes to reveal completely lined eyes, with the color having transferred along your bottom lashes.
Make things easy on yourself by using a micellar water to take off your eye makeup at the end of the day. The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Clean Waterproof – All Skin Types is a no-rinse cleanser that removes in one step makeup and dirt, leaving skin looking hydrated and purified. Saturate a cotton pad with the liquid, and hold the pad over closed eyes for a few seconds. Gently wipe to remove mascara and any other makeup or impurities.
Now, go snap a tube of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara and start batting those lashes! Want more mascara picks? Check out our article, Mascara 101: Your Guide to the Different Formulas.
