Get the most out of your mascara with these makeup artist secrets:
Curl your lashes first. It's not just a beauty myth, the added step gives your lashes a lift and makes your eyes look bigger. For extra impact, warm your lash curler with a blast from the blow-dryer, (just test the metal first to make sure it's not too hot.)
Don't pump the wand. Shocking, right? But COVERGIRL pros say this adds air to the container, which will make your mascara dry out faster.
Layer and repeat. Apply at least two coats of mascara, like COVERGIRL's LashBlast Fusion Water Resistant Mascara, for volume and length. Then add even more volume and impact by applying another layer to the outer corners—especially at the tips. It'll make for extra long-looking lashes.
Finally, if your tube starts to smell funky, toss it! Mascara's got a shelf life of about six months.
