Read on:
1.Apply As Usual, Then Build
Apply your favourite mascara to your lower and upper lashes as normal. After this simply add a little extra mascara on the outer tips. This will enhance the lash length. Fruk loves Jay Manuel’s Everything Mascara, £27, QVC
Root stamping is basically the name given for pressing your mascara against the roots of your lashes. If you use one mascara, simply add more product to the wand before applying. If you are a fan of using two mascaras, this is the point you would apply the second product. Fruk loves Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Mascara, £25, Debenhams.
Carefully pressing the wand against the roots will add definition and volume without the need for extra eyeshadow tricks or highlighter. This method works incredibly well on people with smaller eyelids. Root stamping creates the appearance of a much wider eye and full, volumous lashes – and by following this technique you can achieve a great effect without the need for eyeliner (of which can make eyes appear smaller).
3.Lash By Lash
This is an age-old trick, but it makes your eyes pop without the need for a pair of falsies!
Take the tip of your mascara wand and gently apply a little extra mascara to each lash, thus enhancing even fuller and wider eyes.
4.Take A Selfie
Lastly, pick up your phone, take a selfie and smile at the effortless awesomeness of root stamping!
