I am a lefty. I was talking with another lefty awhile back about how we could also use our right hands for a lot of things. One thing she mentioned was that she could apply her mascara to each eye with that respective sides hand (so to put mascara on her left eye she uses her left hand; right eye, her right hand). I never really thought about how I put my mascara on but realized after that I also do it her way (use both hands). She said that most people use their dominant hand and then sometimes end up screwing up their makeup when they have to cross over to the other eye. So I’m just curious- how do YOU apply your mascara?

I’m a cross over kind of gal.
I’m right-handed and when I do my right eye, the back of my right hand faces me. When I do my left eye, the front of my right hand faces me.

I used to only use my left hand (lefties unite!) but actually ended up messing my right eye up more when I did that. So now I use whichever hand matches the eye I do it. Fiance makes fun of me though because I always end up doing my mascara pressed up against the full-length mirror, mouth open. So unattractive haha. I generally save mascara application for when he isn’t home or is in the other room (otherwise he stands there making fish-mouth faces and makes me laugh, which makes me mess up. Sigh. Boys.)

I’m a lefty and I use both hands, too. I wonder if that’s normal for us!

I use my right hand for both eyes. Now I want to try using my left hand on my left eye tomorrow… I predict disaster.

I think you need to add in your poll:
Apply with ridiculously gaping open mouth and arched eyebrows al la Beauty Heaven:
This is not me. I look worse when I apply mine…

I cannot for the life of me remember if I use one hand or both. I’m pretending to apply mascara and both ways seem natural to me. I’ll have to put on mascara tonight and report back.

I couldn’t remember so went to my makeup stand (mirror on coffee table, lol) and did it with the mascara cap on (since I already did my makeup). Two hands it is!

I use both hands… but I do a lot of things with both hands. Also of note, when applying my mascara I don’t open my mouth. I didn’t know this was odd until someone at the gym made a comment about how they didn’t think it was humanly possible 🙂 I do, however, look surprised because I arch my eyebrows wayyy up. I have no idea why.

I use both hands, mouth wide open, eyebrows up high hahahahaa. I can close my mouth if I’m thinking about it, but it’s more comfortable wide open hahahah

I use left hand for left eye, right hand for right eye. I’m left handed but I can’t use my left hand for my right eye because I would always hit my nose with the wand. I’ve gotten pretty good at applying it with my right hand, though.

@Eight6Eleven: Bahaha, yep that’s me to a tee. ‘Cept since I can’t see without my glasses I’m pressed up to the mirror with my nose almost touching.

@MissBoPeep: lol I voted that I crossover (because I couldnt remember and was trying to imagine putting it on) but then I just ran to the bathroom and actually put mascara on and I actually use both!!
