Hello all you beauty bugs. Earlier this week we gave you the 411 when it comes buying your perfect mascara wand. Personally for me, mascara is something that can take you from zero to Beyoncé in seconds – provided you know which wand and technique to use. And for those who want the I woke up like this look, I’m going to be showing you a few tips to go that extra mile for va va voom lashes all day errday!

It’s simple, just follow these steps.

1. Blowdryer

Yes, I know you might have heard this one before. But I can’t stress enough how effective this is! Your blowdryer isn’t just for your tresses ladies. Before you put your mascara on, apply some heat to the lash curler and curl them lashes girl. Keep in mind not to immediately curl them after heating it up or else you’ll be left with a stinger on your upper lid. Ouch!

2. Baby Powder

Before that coat of mascara, prep your lashes with some baby powder after which you can layer on the mascara like a boss. Incase you’ve run out, another alternative is some vaseline.

3. Double Or Nothing

They say three times a charm, but for your lashes twice will do. Here’s how I do it: curler, mascara coat one…after a few seconds – mascara coat two (you could even use another mascara for the second coat). And for the final touch,  very lightly use your lash curler again to avoid any lash breakage and you’re done! Nothing like a mascara cocktail, amirite?

4. Liner

Using one of your trusty black eyeliners, line the upper lids of your lashes (preferably near the waterline). This will instantly open up your eyes and you’ll see a lot of volume to your lashes. Dollop a coat of mascara and you’re good to go.

5. Lip Brush

Now, just as your almost reaching your perfect eye makeup fleekness, you happen to coat the bottom lashes and disaster strikes when the wand hits the under eye area! Nahiii (filmy style). We’ve all been there. So, to avert this disaster, use a lipstick brush, coat it with the mascara and with a gentle hand start applying it to your bottom lashes and voila – bombshell alert!

Now that you achieved your dream lashes, looking fresher than fresh (sans falsies), apply some shimmer and blush and you’re good to go. Fresh face alert! There’s only one thing to do now – selfie! #sorrynotsorry
