STEP 3: Now that you have curled your lashes, grab the mascara tube and swirl the mascara wand around to get the mascara on all bristles. Never pump the wand in and out of the tube. Pushing it in and out, pushes air into the tube, making the mascara clumpy.

STEP 4: To coat your lashes, start at the roots of your upper lash line and apply it  with a wriggling motion. Starting from the roots will ensure that there is more volume at the roots. (ALSO READ How to apply kajal? 3 different ways to apply kohl for beautiful eyes).

STEP 7: After the first coat, apply another coat. This will give your lashes more volume. And if you want your lashes to look fuller, you can dust translucent powder in between the first and second coat. This will add instant volume to your lashes, without using false lashes.

STEP 8: Let the mascara dry a little and then use the curler again if required. (This step is optional)

STEP 9: The final step is to remove any mascara smudges around your eyes. To remove the smudges, dip a cotton swab into makeup remover and gently use it to wipe off any unnecessary mascara smudges.
