Perfect mascara - what is it?
Many of us have mascaras for all occasions - with different effects, colors, purpose. For everyday use, it is desirable to choose lengthening mascara - a volumetric, especially applied in two layers, it would be inappropriate to look at nine in the morning in the office.
The lengthening effect is provided thanks to microfibres of nylon or silk, which add lengths to your eyelashes.
Often, lengthening mascaras are unstable, since the fibers may peel off, so owners of sensitive eyes or those who wear contact lenses should choose mascara without such fibers. To enhance the lengthening effect, manufacturers often add a special substance - a primer, which is applied a few minutes before applying directly to the carcass.
As a rule, such carcasses have a double tuba with a double-sided brush. Often, girls who have experience in using double mascaras complain that the primer, which is often white, remains noticeable after applying a layer of mascara, so you should not put it too close to the roots.Before you buy a mascara with a double effect (as well as others), it is advisable to read reviews about it - an additional tool may be useless or it may even complicate the process of use.
Voluminous mascaras will help to add thickness to rare eyelashes. For this is responsible wax, which gently envelops the eyelashes from all sides, but at the same time they do not stick together. Often mascara may contain other additives, for example, the same fibers that increase the apparent volume.
Twisting mascara is ideal for girls with naturally good eyelashes, which lack the bend. The curved view is ensured by the presence of keratin and special resins, which, when dried, reliably fix their shape. For best effect, this mascara should have a brush with bristles of different lengths; Some manufacturers are developing a special curved shape that provides uniform staining of eyelashes and fixation of the bend.
Some manufacturers offer bilateral carcasses, at one end of which — the usual black, and at the other - color: silver or gold. They perfectly complement the festive look, but in everyday life they look a bit out of place and, besides, they visually shorten the eyelashes.
Note that when using colored mascara eyelashes fade into the background, because their color focuses attention directly on the iris.
In addition to decorative, there are also medical mascaras - they do not paint eyelashes, do not give them additional volume and do not increase the length. This mascara - a cocktail of many nutrients: oils, vitamins, sunscreens, keratin, substances that stimulate the growth of new hairs.
These tools can be used as courses for a radical improvement of the eyelashes, and for prevention, in order to maintain them in good condition.Some carcasses are composed of potent substances, so before using them you should consult with your doctor and follow the instructions carefully - side effects can be quite strong.
If you need to look good in any conditions, pay attention to the water and moisture-resistant carcasses. Waterproof carcasses are marked with the words “water-proof”; they will endure tears or a few raindrops, but with longer and more intense exposure they can smudge. Moisture resistant mascaras marked “moisture-proof” are more resistant, they can easily withstand even swimming in the sea or pool.
Any mascaras that are positioned as resistant to moisture, you need to wash off only makeup remover waterproof cosmetics - universal tools will not clean the eyelids and eyelashes completely.
If you have sensitive eyes, or you wear contact lenses, you need to use carcasses for sensitive eyes — they are devoid of allergens that can cause irritation; quite often such means are water based.
It is better to buy mascara with additives that improve the condition of the eyelashes: lanolin moisturizes the hairs from the inside, eliminating breakage, keratin makes them stronger, and panthenol eliminates minor injuries. Enhance eyelash growth vitamin complex with vitamins A and E, and a UV filter will protect them from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. In order to prevent increased reproduction of microorganisms that can trigger an infection, various preservatives are added to the mascara, the most famous of which is glycerin.
It is important to pay attention to the consistency and packaging of this cosmetic. Fresh mascara has the same creamy consistency without lumps, stratification, pronounced smell.
Carcasses with different effects have a different consistency, for example, lengthening is often more liquid than volume, so this fact should be taken into account. A quality carcass packaging has all the necessary information about the manufacturer, composition, expiration line, there are no visible damages on it.If you buy cosmetics brands with a world name, first look at how the packaging and tube should look like so as not to buy a fake.
After purchase, mascara must be used throughout the line on the package - it does not exceed 6-12 months for an open product. For girls with sensitive eyes or for those who use contact lenses, it is advisable to change the ink every three months.
