A mascara brush should be moved towards the outer corner of the eyes. In such a way, an effect of cat eyes is achieved.

How to apply a mascara? Start with curling your lashes with an eyelash curler. In such a way, you avoid making the accessory dirty and you will not ruin all the mascara layers applied. Then, coat tips of the eyelashes. This kind of action makes your shortest lashes stretch. Next, mascara the lashes of upper eyelids with the above-mentioned zigzag motion. Place the wand on the lash base and then wiggle the brush upwards. Lashes should not stick together due to this technique. If you would like to, feel free to repeat the movement several times. Again, with the tip of the wand, stretch the tips of the lashes upwards. Now, remove the excess of mascara out of the wand and get the lashes separated. After that, repeat the procedure on the lower eyelashes. Mascara these by holding the wand parallel to eyes. You can as well place the wand vertically and move the applicator from the inner corner of the eye to the outer one. The last step, separate the lashes with a special lash comb.
