Hot take: Everyone knows how to apply mascara. I mean, think about it: Did anyone ever teach you how? Have you ever watched a tutorial on it? Do you spend your mornings trying to perfect your process, with the skill of a surgeon? Probably not. Because somehow, we were all born with an innate knowledge of beefing up our lashes.
So I was confused when I came across a
applying mascara to a model whose eyes were closed. Where was her mouth-agape fish face? Where was her head tilt? And rather than lightly combing mascara through the model's lashes as us normal folks do, Eisdell was pushing and wriggling the mascara into the model's lashes. Basically, the whole process looked weird and wrong.
Still, the image stuck with me. So, for the hell of it, I tried it out at home. And wow, my eyelashes have never looked better in my entire life. This isn't an exaggeration. My skimpy, short, itty-bitty-baby lashes suddenly looked thick, full, and fluttery. And I realized in that moment that we've all been applying mascara wrong our entire lives, and that I would spend the rest of my days telling the world about this application trick - starting with a group text to my friends.
After much cajoling, follow-up, and before-and-after pics, my friends are converts too.
