There are personal preferences when it comes to applying mascara as well.The first way is to curl your lashes first and then apply the mascara.To curl your lashes, put the eyelash curler up to your eye making sure that your lashes get in between the actual curler.Then simply squeeze or press down to curl the lashes.Hold the curler close to your eye and hold for a while to get the amount of curl that you want.Make sure that you do not pull away from your eye when you are curling.This can cause you to pull out your eyelashes, which can be very painful.Once your lashes are curled to the extent that you prefer, it is time to apply the mascara.Take the mascara brush and start at the base of your lashes and brush slowly up to the ends of your lashes.If you want to do this more than once, you can but this can create build up of the mascara so you might want to only apply once.If your lashes are the desired look then you are done.If you lost some of the curl by applying the mascara, you can curl your lashes again with the mascara already on the lashes.The mascara will actually help to keep your lashes curled.Just make sure that you wash your eyelash curler afterwards because it will get mascara on it.

Another way to apply mascara and curl your lashes is just the opposite of the previous process.Instead of curling your lashes first, you would apply the mascara first and then curl your lashes.This will allow your curl to stay in place so you do not have to curl them again, but make sure to wash your curler after getting mascara on it.The only problem with applying mascara before you curl your lashes is that you might get mascara on your lower eyelids when you blink if the mascara is wet for a little bit.This would only be a problem for people who have extremely straight lashes.If your lashes are somewhat curled naturally, then this would not be too much of a problem.Once you have the desired curl and the desired mascara look, you are done.

No matter which way you prefer to curl your eyelashes and apply mascara, you will definitely achieve the look you want by using these tips.Your eyes will stand out much more, and you can have different looks.
