As your eyes are one of the first things people notice, you'll want to add impact with eye makeup that will make your peepers pop. If your lashes appear uneven and stick out in different directions, however, you can tame these wild and unruly hairs and make them look perfect. Instead of running to the store for a set of fake fringe, you can make your own lashes look uniform, full and fabulous at home.

Curl Your Fringe

Curl the top eyelashes using an eyelash curler. This is necessary to tame wild eyelashes and make all the hairs curl up and out.

Open the curler and bring it to your upper lashes. Place the bottom of the eyelash curler at the base of the lash line. Make sure that you have placed all the lashes inside of the curler.

Squeeze and close the curler three or four times, moving the tool gently up the lashes from the roots to tips. Do the same thing on the other eye.

Apply two coats of black or brown mascara to your lashes. Start at the base of the eyelashes and brush the mascara upward from the bottom. Repeat this on your other eye.

Comb Your Lashes

Comb through eyelashes using a lash comb. Combing the lashes will help separate your fringe and make the hairs look more uniform and straight.

Position the comb at the base of the eyelashes and comb from the root to the tip. Do this gently so as not to pull out any of your lashes. Repeat this step on the other eyelashes.

Apply two coats of black or brown mascara to your lashes. Start at the base of the eyelashes and brush the mascara upward from the bottom. Repeat this on your other eye.

Tip

Apply lash conditioner before applying mascara. It helps keep the eyelashes from drying out and keeps them tamed and glossy. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for how to apply.

Warning

Look down while applying mascara to keep it from getting in your eyes.
