Instructions for use: The most effective way to apply mascara is to start with the upper lashes; hold the brush horizontally and move up from the root in a zigzag fashion while looking down. Focus on the outside lashes if you wish to to makes your eyes appear larger, or focus on the centre to 'open up' eyes. Use sparingly on lower lashes by gently tapping on them.
Zao Beauty tip: Mascara should be applied to clean, dry lashes that are free from cream or oil, after a dusting of powder to extend durability. Pull the mascara wand out with one movement and avoid pumping the mascara wand in the bottle. Wipe excess product with tissue rather than using the opening of the bottle as this can lead to dried out formula re-attaching to the brush. Wait until mascara is dry to remove any errors from skin, gently wiping it off with a damp cotton pad or cotton bud. You can then touch up foundation on the area if needed, using the same cotton pad or bud.
