6 Cool Mascara Hacks You Need To Try

Mascara is a staple in our makeup bag. Whether you are going to the gym or to a party, mascara is useful and needs just a few seconds of application. However, not everyone is gifted with extra long eyelashes and mascara can be a tricky thing when it comes to making your lashes look longer and thicker. That’s why we gathered these cool mascara hacks that every girl needs to know about.

If you want your lashes to look extra-long, start at the base of your lash line and wiggle the wand upward.


This will help get more mascara on each lash for a longer effect. Use a curved eyeliner brush as an alternative to a mascara wand: Apply it as you would any other eyeliner, but use it from root to tip instead of just along the upper lid. The curved shape will pick up more product and allow for greater control over application than most traditional spoolies do!


To look like you have full and voluminous lashes, apply 2 coats of mascara, then use a clean spoolie to comb out any clumps.


This will give you a fluttery look that isn't too thick. Keep an extra spoolie around specifically for mascara applications. That way I can use it on my lashes and then throw it away when I'm done so that I don't mix up any other products with my mascara wand. It's important not to let the first layer dry before applying the second one; otherwise, it won't work as well or at all. You'll also want to make sure that your spoolie isn't dirty or old—you don't want anything getting stuck in your lashes!


Heat up your mascara with a hairdryer for a few seconds before applying it, this will help keep lashes curled all day long.


This hack is one of the simplest and most effective ways to make sure your mascara stays put: all you have to do is grab a hairdryer and heat up the tube for a few seconds before applying. This will help keep your lashes curled, which means no smudges or smears! Just be careful not to hold the dryer too close to your face as this can burn your eyes, and definitely don't overheat it—you don't want melted mascara all over you! Also, make sure not to drop it on yourself or get water anywhere near it; that tends not to lead well for anyone involved (including us).


For an extra-dark and dramatic look, dip your wand in warm water before applying your black mascara.


If you’re working with a particularly stubborn mascara, try dipping your wand in warm water before applying it. By helping separate the fibers that make up your lashes, this hack will give them more volume and length—plus it will keep them curled longer than normal. You can also use hot tea or coffee instead of water if you have access to those things. Make sure not to use boiling hot water though (that would be dangerous), because that could burn your eyes!


If you're in a pinch and can't find eyelash curlers, use a spoon instead!


This works especially well on longer lashes, but it also works on shorter ones if you just want to open your eyes a bit more. It's easier than using an eyelash curler because there's no risk of smudging your eye makeup or getting poked in the eye!


Hold the spoon under your eye and press up against the lash line. The curve of the spoon will help create a little hook at the end of your lash so it curls up naturally. Repeat this on both eyes until you get full, voluminous lashes! To add extra drama to your look, try lining your top and bottom waterlines with black kohl liner before applying mascara (it'll also make them look more defined).


To avoid smudging throughout the day, apply powder over your eyeliner before putting on your mascara to prevent it from getting flaky.


This hack is so simple that you'll be kicking yourself for not thinking of it sooner. First, apply your favorite eyeliner to the top and bottom lashes. Then, just before applying mascara, gently brush on a small amount of translucent powder with a makeup brush or clean toothbrush from the outer corner of your eye towards the inner corner (basically patting it in). This will help keep eyeliner from flaking throughout the day and also prevent smudging—a common problem with mascaras.
