'Full brows and lashes complete any eye look.'Tip #01 - ADD COLOUR.
Coloured mascaras are all the rage. We've seen them on the runways and over the counter. But to make the colour truly pop, apply a coat of black mascara - a lengthening mascara is preferred for doll-like lashes - before applying your favourite coloured mascara. For the best results, apply the coloured mascara just to the tips to make lashes truly flutter-worthy.
Tip#02 - WAIT A WHILE.
To intentionally get that clumpy-mascara finish that seems to be everywhere right now, the key is to wait for each coat of mascara application to dry before applying the next. And of course, the more coats - three to four coats is good- the better. But do go slow, because you don't want too much, which can result in droopy lashes. Also, don't wipe the wand. Instead, apply it straight from the tube.
Tip#03 - GET FULLER LASHES AND BROWS AT THE SAME TIME.
Forget skinny brows as fuller bushes are preferred. Have naturally skinny or short brows? Use a lash growth-enhancing serum on your brows to help your brow hairs grow. Yes, it works there too! And for an easy quick-fix for unruly brows, spritz hairspray onto a clean mascara wand and brush.

I hope that you have learnt something new! I certainly did! I never thought to use black mascara as a base to make coloured mascara pop. I always thought that the black will ruin everything o.o
