Applying makeup is fun - especially when you consider how many different options you have! If you want to make a dramatic impression at a fancy soiree, you may want to go for a smoky eye that's impossible to ignore. On the other hand, if you're just heading into the office for another day of meetings, a nude eye with just a tad of shimmer is all the occasion requires. And when it comes to applying mascara, you have a key choice to make: Should you coat your bottom lashes?
If you want to make sure your peepers pop, applying mascara to both your top and bottom lashes is a great way to make your eyes look wider and brighter. If you wear eyeliner on the bottom of your eye, a swipe or two of tube mascara on your lower lashes is a great way to open up your eyes.
However, if you get a little overzealous with the mascara, you could wind up with a "Clockwork Orange" look. Make sure you use a light touch on your bottom lashes, or skip them altogether if you want all the focus to be on your eyeshadow and eyebrows.
