Repeat the above step after the first coat is allowed to dry. For more drama, apply a third and even a fourth coat. Use an eyelash comb to separate the wet lashes. Also blot the lashes with tissue paper if necessary to remove excess mascara.
Apply less mascara for the lower lashes. Begin where the lashes meet the rim of the lower eyelid, and gently stroke downward.

Gently remove any excess mascara from around the eyes with a cotton swab dipped in a small amount of eye makeup remover. Remove your mascara the same way, gently. Avoid any excessive pulling of the lashes when cleaning with eye makeup remover.
It takes time to apply mascara and get the look you are going for so do not rush, it is worth it.
