All the secrets of the carcass
Now we have a huge selection of mascaras of various types and colors. And innovative developments in this area sometimes amaze even the most sophisticated.
The times when women used dry mascara Leningrad, fortunately, have long sunk into oblivion. Now we have a huge selection of mascaras of various types and colors. And innovative developments in this area sometimes amaze even the most sophisticated - for example, the vibrating Mascara Oscillation from Lancôme independently separates and curls the eyelashes, and the unusual round brush Phenomen’Eyes Mascara from Givenchy easily makes each eyelash voluminous. But the most expensive and the simplest mascara are similar in one - they all promise us the effect of fantastically long and incredibly voluminous eyelashes. How not to get lost in this variety and choose the right mascara?
The first thing that the word “collagen” is associated with for most of us is cosmetic products that rejuvenate the skin. L’Oréal Paris decided to go further and used this important protein to create the mascara. The Hydra-Collagen complex in the formula of the new Extra-Volume Collagene volume carcass instantly thickens each eyelash by as much as 60%! A large rounded brush distributes the required amount of mascara on each eyelash and leaves absolutely no lumps. But - most importantly - L’Oréal Paris research on measuring eye attraction has proven that eyelashes painted with Extra-Volume Collagene have a strong emotional effect on others and attract attention!
Cilia to cilia
The functional properties of the carcass are affected by a combination of several factors. This is the shape of the brush, the density and length of the pile, the material from which it is made, as well as the composition and texture of the carcass itself. “The twisting properties of the mascara are more dependent on its composition,” says Yulia Zubareva, art director of the Moscow club of makeup artists. - As a rule, it contains polymers, which are compressed 1−2 minutes after applying the mascara, then the twisting effect occurs. Carcasses that add volume, in addition to enveloping particles, usually contain moisturizing components that promote swelling of the hairs. Of course, the brush at the bulk carcass should be with a thick pile. Lengthening mascara contains fewer particles for volume, but it also contains moisturizing components and the smallest villi that build up the eyelash tip and lengthen it. The brush for lengthening mascara, as a rule, is not very thick. Recently, many cosmetic companies produce silicone brushes. Silicone pile is more resilient, it separates eyelashes better, so there is no need to comb them after applying mascara. " Mascara can be divided into two types: waterproof and water soluble. The latter has at least two advantages: firstly, it is the least harmful to the eyelashes, and secondly, it is very easily washed off with lotion or milk. True, during its use it is extremely undesirable to come into contact with water. With waterproof mascara, everything is different - it includes special waterproof resins that do not dissolve in water. That is why such carcasses are not afraid of water in principle. In addition, it is waterproof mascara that forms a strong film on the cilia, visually lengthening them. The biggest disadvantage of waterproof mascara is that it easily dissolves in fats, which means it can easily blur under the eyes. However, science does not stand still - modern waterproof carcasses, unlike their predecessors, are removed from the eyes not with a fat cream, but with warm water.
Mascara brushes come in several forms. The most popular ones are medium-sized classic ones, curved ones for curling eyelashes, large ones for quick dyeing of length and volume, and the most modern ones - large and small elastomer brushes.
Yuri Stolyarov, Maybelline New York's leading makeup artist, talks about the types of brushes.
Elastomer brush has more dense and elastic villi that perfectly structure and separate the eyelashes, which allows you to create a clear and neat makeup. Unlike conventional brushes, such a brush will never deteriorate.
Small synthetic comb brush Ideal for staining the root zone of the upper and lower eyelashes and creating a basal volume. Such a brush is often used in work by professional makeup artists.
But the most popular remain medium and large classic bristles. They quickly color eyelashes, separating them, and depending on the composition of the mascara give the length or volume of the eyelashes. In any case, absolutely all brushes require care: rinse the brush as lumps appear, then your mascara will last longer and the eyelash makeup will look neater.
How to increase eyelashes?
Of course, the length and density of eyelashes directly depend on genetic factors, but do not despair - with the help of decorative cosmetics and simple folk remedies, you can deceive nature.
1 Add a couple drops of vitamin A to castor oil and carefully lubricate with this composition of the cilia several times a day. This mixture makes the eyelashes shiny and perfectly stimulates their growth.
2 Almond and peach oils are an easy way to enhance eyelash growth, as well as excellent prevention of hair loss.
3 Take in equal proportions castor and burdock oils, an oily solution of vitamin E, as well as aloe juice. Mix these ingredients and pour the resulting balm into a clean, empty carcass tube. It is advisable to use such a tool daily for a month, then the eyelashes will grow thick and strong. This balm can also be used for prevention.
It is advisable to take care of the beauty of eyelashes in the evening, before bedtime, after removing makeup. If your eyelashes regularly receive the most useful ingredients throughout the night, you will notice the first positive results very soon!
• Mascara should not be stored for more than three months. Otherwise, after the expiration date, she will begin to leave ugly lumps on her eyelashes and make them heavier.
• To prevent the mascara from drying out before time, the brush should be removed from the tube, carefully scooping up the mascara, and not with sharp movements up and down.
• If particles of dried mascara remain on the brush, it must not be lowered back into the tube. First you need to wipe the brush with a napkin, and only then close it.
• When the mascara runs out, do not try to reach it by pulling the cap up and down. With this movement, we only pump air into the tube, causing the carcass to dry quickly. It is necessary to slowly unscrew the lid, collecting mascara from the walls.
• To keep the mascara long, do not keep the tube open and tighten the cap tightly.
