How to get the most out of your mascara

How to get the most out of your mascara?

There are so many tips for using mascara sprawled over the internet. As the lash experts, we thought we’d create the last round up you’ll ever need. So, here is: what to look for, to get the most out of your mascara.


First up, lash separation. The holy grail we all seek from our lash treatments and product purchases. To get the best lash separation from your mascara you want to focus on two things, both to do with the wand. The right brush head shape will help you achieve the lash look that is important to you. For example, if you want to achieve a fanned out curl, a curved brush wand will be useful for you. An oversized, thickly bristled wand will help add maximum volume to lashes. 

The second thing to consider is not pumping the wand in and out of the bottle. This pushes air into the tube, which will dry the product out faster and lead to clumping and flaking. This also increases the chance of bacteria entering the tube. Instead, you should twist the wand back and forth or move in circular motions inside the tube, to pick up the desired amount of product. 

A great mascara will help you to make the most of your natural lashes whenever you decide to take a break from lash lifts of lash extensions. Mascaras that have recipe ingredients that help to nourish the lashes, will help you to get the most out of your treatment break.

Use a formula that can be worn with lashes that have had a lash lift treatment. Using a mascara on top of lash-lifted lashes can add an intensity and drama to the lashes, ensuring you are able to get the most value out of your treatment, and achieve various looks. 

To get the most out of any mascara, ensure you pay attention to how many months you use your mascara for, and are replacing the product regularly. The more use a tube has had, the higher potential for it to be contaminated with germs that can lead to eye infections and irritations. Other signs of contamination are if the texture changes or the performance of the mascara decreases. These can both be indications that it’s time for a new mascara purchase. And if you’re in the market for a new mascara…


This week has seen the launch of the first mascara by Flawless Lashes by Loreta: IntensiveEye Mascara. We know lashes. And we’ve put all of that knowledge into our smudge-proof formula that lasts all day and gives a full lash-lift effect finish.

To make the most out of IntensiveEye mascara, style your lashes by building the mascara at the root first, for a more dense and dramatic look. Move the wand from side to side at the base of the lashes, before then going over from root to tip to create a full feathery lash look. 

The cone-shaped brush head solves multiple desires in one product. Thick, irritation-free bristles give volume, while the conical shape makes for easy and precise application to the corner lashes, providing an overall cat eye / winged effect. Cone-shaped wands also encourage lash separation, so you know what that means… no more clumps!

Intensive Eye mascara has been formulated with castor seed oil and coconut oil to nourish lashes with each application, making it the perfect product for those times in-between treatments. 

Removal is just as important as application of the product. As Intensive Eye mascara has been designed to be long wearing, extra care should be taken when removing the product to avoid any damage to lashes. We would advise using an oil or our Flawless Lashes foam cleanser to ensure the complete removal of the product. Apply your cleanser to the closed eye, and let it sit for at least few seconds, so that the formula can fully saturate the lashes and break down the product while also preventing damage. Then gently wipe away. 

We may be biased, but we think it’s pretty great. Shop new Intensive Eye mascara.
