  • Mascara-usage popular among young women

    Many little girls spend hours playing with their mom's makeup, smearing on red lipstick and brushing on dark circles of rouge. However, as young ladies grow older, many eventually want cosmetics of their own.

    "A lot of tween girls think makeup is really exciting to them when they first start to wear it because it's probably something they haven't been allowed to do," Eva Chen, beauty and health director at Teen Vogue, told the Associated Press. "[At] about 13 or 14-years-old, they feel like they're over lip gloss. They still wear it, but that's when they want to transition into mascara."

    In fact, the news provider reports that according to market research firm The NPD Group, 18 percent of 8 to 12-year olds wear mascara on a regular basis. Not surprisingly, the numbers increase as young women grow older - 47 percent of 13 to 17-year-olds wear mascara, as does 56 percent of girls by age 18.

    Parents who allow their daughters to purchase their first tube of mascara may want to opt for a gentle formula that won't smear during the young woman's busy day. A tubing mascara will last throughout the day, won't run and won't have to be reapplied, leaving young women free to enjoy their days without worrying about touch-ups.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19934392-ADNFCR

  • Mascara on lower lashes: To apply or not to apply

    While there are many contentious issues surrounding mascara application - how to hold the wand, where to direct your gaze - few topics may be more debated than whether or not to apply the product to your lower lashes.

    According to a poll conducted by Glamour.com, 50 percent of women replied that they don mascara on their bottom lashes all the time, while roughly 19 percent claimed they never did. Fifteen percent of women revealed that they sometimes coat their lower lashes, and 16 percent only do so when opting for a "dramatic look."

    Women who want to wear mascara on their bottom lashes can heed a bit of expert advice to achieve a more flawless look.

    "Put mascara on lower lashes first, to prevent top mascara from transferring to lids when looking up to apply bottom mascara," makeup artist Robin Siegelhas told InStyle.com.

    The website also suggests using blinc Mascara (formerly Kiss Me mascara), as it features a waterproof, flake-free formula that won't smudge beneath eyes. Lightly brush the mascara wand along the roots of lower lashes, then turn the wand vertical and tap each lash gently to evenly distribute the product.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19939037-ADNFCR

  • Maintain your dye job with mascara

    maintain+your+dye+job+with+mascara_3356_800093726_0_0_7042685_300Women dye their hair for a variety of reasons - some want to cover gray strands, while others simply prefer the way colored locks look. But while ladies may adore the way it looks, dyed hair can be a hassle to maintain.

    With work days full of meetings and appointments, and after-hours packed with errands and obligations, it can be hard to find time to run to the salon, even when you need it! Instead of trying to rearrange your schedule to accommodate a last-minute hair appointment, dive into your cosmetic case for a quick fix.

    According to The Bellingham Herald, mascara can be used in a pinch to touch up roots and conceal gray hairs.

    "In black or brown shades, mascara creates realistic lowlights in dark hair and covers the gray," the news source reports. While dark mascara will hide gray hair, lighter-hued formula will cover the strands with color, creating natural-looking highlights.

    If you decide to use mascara on your strands as well as your peepers, you may want to invest in disposable wands to keep your eyes healthy.

  • Solutions to common makeup application mistakes

    solutions+to+common+makeup+application+mistakes_3356_800093719_0_0_7070089_300While it can be fun to listen to expert advice on how to create a perfect look, few ladies enjoy hearing what they are doing wrong when applying makeup. However, being aware of what not to do may be just as important.

    According to Oprah.com, you should avoid wearing too much makeup on your forehead, as makeup can easily crease with each expression you make. Makeup artist Napoleon Perdis suggests dotting foundation on your cheeks, chin and nose, and blending the extra product toward your hairline.

    Additionally, experts warn against applying powder eyeshadow after brushing on mascara, as the shadow can get stuck to wet lashes, making them look dusty.

    However, makeup artist Michael Pierce says that this rule can be broken, under the right circumstances.

    "If you have very deep-set eyes or droopy lids, you need to lift the eyelid with your finger in order to apply mascara. You wouldn't want to ruin your perfect shadow application with a smudgy fingerprint," he told the news source. "Instead, apply one coat of mascara first, then do your eyeshadow, and finish with a light second coat on the ends to cover any of the powder that may have stuck to lashes."

  • Flaunting makeup at yoga class: Lady Gaga does

    While few may be surprised to hear that Lady Gaga's appearance is making waves, it seems that the pop star has the world buzzing once again. StarLounge.com reports that Gaga is supposedly known for swinging into hot yoga classes in full makeup.

    Wearing nothing more than a bikini, a set of false eyelashes and siren red lipstick, the singer was once seen walking out of a private Bikram yoga session, which is typically practiced at 105 degrees.

    While most of us may not put on a two-piece before heading to the gym, ladies who want to look their best while working out can take a tip from Gaga herself and sport lush lashes.

    However, instead of faux fringes which might fall off while exercising, gals can apply tubing mascara such as blinc Mascara. Unlike traditional mascaras, the water-resistant formula isn't painted on. Instead, it encases each lash in a tube, and won't flake or smudge.

    And, as fans of the singer are sure to appreciate, blinc Mascara is available in several distinct, Gaga-esque colors such as dark blue, dark green and dark purple.
