DIRECTIONS: Stroke successive coats of mascara on the upper and lower lashes.
For the most dramatic lash look, make sure you place the wand as close to the base (roots) of the upper lashes as possible. Hold the wand there, and carefully wiggle it back and forth to deposit extra mascara at the base prior to brushing the wand through the lashes. Proceed with at least 3 full coats for maximum results. Don't let the mascara dry between coats.
Mascara is typically the last step in makeup application because you do not want any of your powder-based products to cling to wet lashes.
If you opt to use an eyelash curler, use it BEFORE applying mascara. Squeeze gently with even pressure, hold for a few seconds and release slowly as you move from the base of the lashes to the tip.
How is Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara different from Great Big Lashes Mascara?
Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara is designed to lengthen lashes while adding dramatic color, an uplifted curl, and fine separation. It goes on a bit wetter and does not supply as much thickness as Great Big Lashes. Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara is best for those who want a lengthening mascara that perfectly defines every last lash.
Is Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara waterproof?
No; however, like most regular mascaras, Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara is water-resistant. That means a minor splash or getting caught in a light rain won't cause the mascara to break down. Getting drenched or going swimming will have that effect, so for those occasions, waterproof mascara is preferred. Paula recommends several waterproof mascaras in her books and on Beautypedia
