How To Apply Mascara

Tools You Will Need

  •  A good quality mascara.
  •  A mirror.
  •  Optional: Eyelash curler.


  •   Start with clean eyes.
  •  Make sure there is no old makeup on the eyelashes.
Optional Curling:
  •   Some people like to use an eyelash curler to give their lashes a nice curve.
  •  If someone chooses to do this, now is the time.
Open the Mascara:
  •   Take the mascara wand out of its tube.
  •  Be careful not to pump the wand in and out, which can add air bubbles.
Get Ready:
  •  Hold the mascara wand in one hand and a mirror in the other.
  •  Come close to the mirror so it's easy to see every eyelash.
Start at the Base:
  •   Place the mascara wand at the base of the top eyelashes.
  •  Make sure the wand touches the skin lightly.
  •  This is the starting point for the windshield wiper motion.
The Windshield Wiper Motion:
  • Move the wand in a zig-zag motion from the base of the lashes to the tips. Imagine a windshield wiper on a car and how it moves back and forth to clear the rain.
  • The wand should move like that but on the eyelashes.
Cover All Lashes:
  •  Keep doing the windshield wiper motion until all the top eyelashes are covered with mascara.
  • Take your time to make sure no lash is left behind.
Bottom Lashes:
  • If someone wants to put mascara on the bottom lashes, they can.
  • Just use the tip of the mascara wand and gently swipe it across the bottom lashes.

Second Coat

If one coat of mascara doesn't seem enough, wait for a minute to let it dry. Then, do another windshield wiper motion coat.

Clean Up:

Sometimes, mascara can smudge or get on the skin. Use a clean cotton swab to remove any mistakes.

And that's it! The windshield wiper motion makes sure the mascara covers all lashes evenly. It's a simple but effective way to make the eyes stand out. A drag performer can use this method to create a dramatic and captivating look.
