"MAC Haute and Naughty Lash Mascara is my favourite mascara because it comes with a dual-wiper which lets you achieve both a natural look and a powerful dramatic look."Expert tip:
Always start by curling your lashes before applying the mascara. Then, when you start applying the mascara, always start from the roots of the lashes working your way up. Make sure that you do not apply it in one direction. Instead, apply it towards hair growth.Eshwar Log, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"I always say that more is more with mascara. I love using Diorshow Pump 'N' Volume HD Mascara or Maybelline New York Volume Express Colossal Mascara. They separate the lash and prevent clumping. These mascaras are long-lasting and smudge-proof."Expert tip:
Curling your lashes is so underrated! You must curl them at least three times. The best lash curler recommended often is the Shu Uemura or Muji. Also, do not skip the bottom lashes and apply a light coat of mascara on the bottom lashes as well.Jordan Liberty, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"I really like the Kush Mascara by Milk Cosmetics because it has this fluffy, Christmas tree wand. It gives separation, length, curl, and volume without clumps."Expert tip:
Use a lash fan brush to apply mascara evenly. Also, take a glob of mascara and wiggle onto the lower lashes to get perfect lashes every single time with no clumps or smudges too. You can even use a flat eyeliner brush as well.Arti Nayar, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"My favourite mascara is Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara because it lasts really long and does not run even if you cry. It’s not clumpy at all and glides very smoothly on the lashes. I like the fullness it brings."Expert tip:
The one thing that you should remember while applying mascara is that when you take the wand out of the bottle, always remove the unnecessary excess before applying.
