star makeup artist, official makeup artist of Maybelline New-York in Russia
When choosing mascara, first of all pay attention to the brush. I prefer to work with very fine little brushes that allow me to get close to each lash and color the hair from base to tip.
Large brushes - for long eyelashes only
Many girls choose mascaras with very large brushes, calculating with their help to achieve maximum volume. As a make-up artist, I can say that such brushes are suitable only for owners of long eyelashes - in all other cases it will be simply difficult to get close to the eyelashes in the corners of the eyes, and in general you will not be able to paint as well as with a small brush.
Focus only on eyelashes
Another secret that I advise you to make part of your beauty routine is the emphasis on eyelashes. Use a mascara that structures the lashes well. You can first twist them with tongs, and then paint over in several layers. The eyelid should be well-groomed (use a primer or nude cream eyeshadow), and nothing else is needed - no pencil, no eyeliner. Only voluminous eyelashes! Such makeup suits absolutely everyone, the eyes seem wide open, the look immediately becomes expressive.
Mascara The Colossal Big Shot, Maybelline New York
Unfortunately, this mascara is not yet in Russia, but I have already tried it and I was completely delighted. I hope that very soon the product will appear in our company, because The Colossal Big Shot is insanely popular in the USA.
The mascara brush is pretty classic, but it does amazing eyelash extensions - makes them look huge! It is easy to achieve the effect of structured eyelashes with this mascara, but it does not stick three hairs into one, but it builds each one. If you are in America, be sure to buy and try.
Mascara Lash Sensational, Maybelline New-York
My favorite mascara, with a silicone curved brush, is suitable for all types of lashes. She perfectly separates and creates the feeling that you have a lot of eyelashes! Especially if you paint over from all sides - I told you how to do it correctly.
Mascara Great Lash Blackest Black, Maybelline New-York
A legendary mascara loved by many makeup artists, you will definitely see it at fashion shows. What's the secret? It's just mascara and nothing else. Often we need just such an effect - natural eyelashes, well colored, without excess volume and lengthening. For such purposes, there is nothing better than this classic product. By the way, you can buy different brushes and experiment with this mascara.
False eyelashes Romanovamakeup
I have repeatedly said that I do not consider myself a fan of false eyelashes, in principle, but some girls need them - for example, if their eyelashes are very short. Plus, there are times when you want maximum volume. If I use this technique, then I choose only eyelashes from Romanovamakeup - and I recommend them not because Olya and I are friends. She just really managed to make a high-quality product that many makeup artists use in Russia.
