We Tried Kylie Jenner's Lower Lash Mascara Hack And It Totally Works
Mascara junkies love a fuller, more defined, longer-looking lash.
When it comes to face fringe, we lash addicts are game to try everything from colored mascaras to interchanging wands in order to create our perfect look.
So, when we found out about the mascara trick Kylie Jenner swears by, we had to give it a shot.
By smudging her mascara, the teen star creates a more dramatic lower lash look without the fuss of applying eyeliner.
We put her method to the test, finding out if Jenner's mascara hack is a beauty myth or actually the best thing ever.
Step 1: Apply your upper lash mascara.
Simple as that! Go with one coat for a more natural look and two to three coats for a more dramatic look.
Step 2: Smudge it out on your lower lash line.
Place the wand at the root of your lash line and gently wiggle it back and forth toward the base of your lashes.
The wand will touch the skin of your lash line, depositing a small amount of mascara. This should give the illusion of wearing a slightly smudgy eyeliner.
Step 3: As a comparison, apply mascara the normal way for the other eye.
In order to show the difference between using this hack and not, apply a standard, light application of mascara that does not touch the lash line at the base.
The results are in:
You can see quite a difference here.
The left eye with the smudge hack has more drama and actually makes the eye look a little bigger when compared to the right eye.
We used Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara and it is definitely the big-lash-seeking gal's best friend. A volumizing mascara like this will give you more of a smudge, and create a more dramatic look.
Go ahead, girl. Rock that smokey eye.
