How To Get Lush Lashes With Brown Mascara

use brown mascara to create a 'no make up, make up' look in just two quick steps.

One of the most under-appreciated cosmetics is brown mascara. I am a huge fan of brown mascara, and I happen to think every woman should own both black and brown mascara. While most women opt for black, brown is a subtle change that allows the wearer to create soft definition for that "no makeup makeup" look. And all in just two quick steps:

Step 1. Using a soft brown eyeliner draw a line tight to the root of the eyelash. Don't worry about being precise, because this line will be blended and smudged down to create soft colour.

Step 2. Apply brown mascara to the top lashes only—not the bottom. Apply to the back of the lash firstthis will create pliability and allow the natural curl of the lash to happen. Then apply to the underside and remember to coat the mascara form the root to tip of the lash for a perfectly polished effect.

For me, makeup is about creating fast and easy finishes for women on the go, with precision products that allow applying makeup to be effortless.

I spend many weeks a year making personal appearances to teach these techniques, and whenever I make a personal appearance you can have a personal one-on-one appointment with me absolutely free of charge. (In my studio I normally charge $250 for a one hour makeup lesson).
