Pick a pair and thank me later! Why are two mascaras better than one? Because each wand is designed to do different things and each formula created for completely different tasks as well. Some add volume, others separate, some lengthen, others create “tubes” around each lash… and when you combine the power of two, the effect is gorgeous. More is more, ladies! Here’s how to do it:
- Use the volumizing mascara by stroking and wiggling the wand through the upper and bottom lashes. Start at the base and pull the wand all the way through to the tips.
- Switch to the lengthening mascara (don’t wait more than a minute in between the two formulas so you can catch it before the first formula dries). Concentrate the wand at the root of the lashes by stamping it across the roots. Revisit my Root Stamp Tutorial to see how. Then pull the final stroke all the way to the tip to lengthen.
- MAGNIFY + TOP COAT: Leave it to the clever folks at Covergirl to create one tube with two wands and two formulas in CoverGirl Bombshell Volume by lashblast Mascara. Use Wand #1 to build volume and Wand #2 to make the lashes as shiny as you can get!
