The curved wand is designed for easy application, so you can reach every single lash. Start by holding the wand horizontally with the tip of the curve pointing downward. As you sweep through your lashes, rotate the tip of the curve inward to curl and lift. Wiggle the brush from side to side at the base of your lashes for extra volume. Hold the brush vertically and use the tip to reach the innermost and outermost lashes. For added volume and length, apply Down Below lash primer prior to applying your black mascara. To avoid mascara build up, Pull the wand out straight when opening your mascara and follow the curve of the brush when placing the wand back into the mascara. Tip: For more dramatic lashes, apply Down Below lash primer first to create a base of volume and length. Next, apply a few coats of The Feathers flake free mascara on top to curl, lift, and amplify the volume of your feathery lashes.
