Tori Belle Magnetude Mascara: Tips to Help Ease Application

Great Tips and Demo video!

Magnetic lashes have 3 ways you can attach them. Liner is definitely the easiest way. Anchors are amazing and natural looking. The 3rd way is Magnetude Magnetic Mascara! This is probably the trickiest of the 3 ways, but once you get the hang of it you’ll feel like a boss!

First Major Point

Magnetude Mascara is not meant to be used like “regular” mascara. It is meant to be a base for the lashes. You should use 1 coat of “regular” mascara first. That way you your lashes are the color of the magnetic lashes and are separated by the regular mascara wand.

Do not get Magnetude on your bottom lashes because your lashes will stick shut from the magnets of the top lashes.

Since this is not used like regular mascara, it won’t go on the entire lash. You will only be creating a base for the lashes to sit on by applying only to the bass of your lashes near the lid.

Why are there 2 sides to this mascara tube?

Both sides of the mascara tube are mascara. One side has a liner brush, but is not liner.

  1. The side with the TB (Tori Belle) symbol is the mascara brush. That is the first side you will start with. You will use that underneath the lash as the base. You work the mascara through the lashes by doing a slight blinking motion (apply 2 coats). You can use the tip to get the inside corner and outside edge a little better for the outside magnets.
  2. The side with the liner wand is for the top side of your lashes. After you do the mascara wand on the bottom, then you will put 2 coats on top of your lashes. Playing close attention to each end. That is where the last magnets will stick. Those are the most important magnets.
    • Make sure you do all of your make-up first. Magnetude mascara is the last step before lashes.
    • Make sure you do 2 coats.
    • Have your q-tips ready. It’s a little runny and can get messy.
    • Make sure it dries for at least 2 minutes. You can use a hair dryer on the “cool” setting to help make sure it’s dry. If it’s not try completely, then they won’t magnetize.
  3. Once you get your mascara on and dry, then you can apply your lashes. The magic is in the pinch. Pinch them on to secure them.

My first couple times went awful!!

At first you don’t succeed, then try try again. I heard that somewhere. It’ll take you 3 or 4 times of trying the mascara to get the hang of it. My face usually looks like a black ink blog. I need to keep make-up remover really close when I’m attempting the mascara. I am a habitual eye stabber. I do it with regular mascara, but this is a little more liquidy than regular mascara or the magnetic liner. Q-tips are my friend.

Keep trying! Once you get the hang of it, then you will feel like you conquered the world.

Anchors Away!

Do you feel like you need a little more stability. Try adding an anchor to each end. No matter if you use the liner or the mascara…anchors can always be used to help with stability.

Don’t you dare!

Do NOT wipe your excess product on the side of the tube of the liner or the mascara. It will clump up and cause your product to not last as long. The clumps will get pushed into the tube. You do not want that to happen. I know it’s hard to resist doing it, but it’s important. You can use something else if you need to dab some of like a make*up pallet.

Questions and Answers: Tori Belle Magnetic Lashes

Whenever you are figuring out how to work your lashes, there are always questions! Don’t be afraid to ask them. No question is silly. If you don’t see an answer below, then ask questions in the comments!

Q: What are the differences between lash styles?

A: Every lash style is different as far as their length and design. That way there is a style for everyone and every occasion. They range from very simple to long and bold. Some or more tapered than others.

Q: How many anchors come with lashes?

A: Usually 8.

Q: What is the best way to trim lashes?

A: When I trim mine width wise to fit my eye properly, I find it easiest to trim a magnet length off by using cuticle cutters or nail clippers! Better control and accuracy than using scissors for me. Whatever you use, make sure it’s nice and sharp. Dull-ish scissors are not a friend to the lashes. Trim the outer corner magnet not inner and next to the magnet not leaving any excess lash band sticking out.

Q: Is ok to use mascara on your Tori Belle lashes?

A: My Tori Belle lashes are so full that I never need to put mascara on them! I DO put a coat of mascara on my own lashes first for them to blend better. I let it dry before applying my lashes. Tori Belle lashes do not need to get wet, so you wouldn’t be able to clean the mascara residue off of them.

Q: What are our lashes made from?

A: Nylon, to keep them lightweight and cruelty free 😍

Q: What are anchors?

A: Essentially a lash extension with a magnet attached, they sandwich your natural lashes for extra secure hold. You may use anchors alone to attach lashes or pair them with the liner or mascara.

Q: Do the lashes actually hold all day without using anchors?

A: They do!! I know we have many nurses in here that use liner only for their long shifts. If they are pulling up at the inner corner, then you may need to trim them to get a proper fit. Or you need to put more liner for the inner magnet.

Q: I keep losing my anchors, are they available for purchase separately or just available in the lash kit?

A: Yes, there is an anchor only set. Those little guys are easy to lose.

Q: I have clumps on my liner. Is there a good way to clean it up? (I wiped on the side when I pulled it out 🤦🏻‍♀️)

A: Q-tip! Clean out the mouth of the liner (around) DON’T push it in. I know it’s hard not to wipe the excess. I use a Q-tip to wipe my excess on and then I use it if I run out while applying.

Q: When placing my lashes I can never get the outer corner to stay down I have used both anchors and the liner. Should I apply that corner first and then my inner corner?

A: Have you trimmed them to fit yet by chance!? Some have to trim a magnet length off for them to properly fit their eye and avoid the corner from popping up.

Q: I have a couple customers say when they go to squish their lashes and the strip together that it’s taking the liner off too. One girl put a primer on beforehand.

A: If you are using liner you want to push into the liner, not down on your lash. If they are trying to fill a gap between their lashes and the magnetic lashes they can pop the anchors on to fill that.

Q: Is there a noticeable difference in the black and grey eyeliner colors?

A: Black on top and grey on bottom (see picture).

Q: Am I supposed to mix the liner up?

A: Yes, that way you get the best use of the magnetic liner. As you bring up the wand, swirl it around. Do not wipe excess on the side of the tube.

Q: What happens if I wipe the excess liner on my tube?

A: Your liner won’t last as long. It will get crusty and  into the tube.

Q: Can you use the magnetic mascara on the non-illusion lashes? Or just the illusion lashes?

A: You can! You just may need anchors for a more secure hold.

Q: What is non-illusion versus illusion lashes?

A: The illusion lashes have a thinner band than the regular lashes. Illusion lashes were designed to pair with the magnetic mascara. You can wear the magnetic mascara with any of the styles though. You can use the liner with the illusion instead of the mascara if you prefer.

Q: With our illusion lashes can you also use anchors? 

A: You can! You can use them for more security or alone.

Q: Do you prefer trimming your inner corner magnet off or outer corner?

A: Some prefer trimming the inner corner because they like the extra fluff on the ends. Some trim the outer corner and then use the extra piece to add more drama to the ends.

Q: Can you use just the anchors instead of the magnetic liner/mascara?

A:  Yes! With all our lashes. I’ve been using just the anchors ( ran out of liner) and I’m loving the look. Get yourself the plastic tweezers; they’re a big help in applying the anchors.

Q: What is the best way to clean the lashes?! I’ve tried the fingernail trick but looking for other ways!

A: I use my fingernails but you definitely want to be gentle❤️ the lashes are hand sown and delicate so you don’t want to be too rough! Be very careful to only get the magnets as getting your lashes wet can cause them to shed. You can also scrape GENTLY with an orange wood stick. Be very very careful when you’re cleaning though. You don’t want to catch the edge of the magnet with your nail or the stick. We used to advise using alcohol but we found it can damage the bond of the magnet on the lash band, so it is NOT recommended to use any water, cleaners, or alcohol etc.

26 Tips and Tricks From Magnetic Lash Lovers

Do I want magnetic lashes? What if I don’t like them? What if I can’t get them to work properly? Should I do it?

Short answer, YES! Get them. Everything new is different. Everything worth doing will take a couple times to get it right. Lashes are no different. Once you get them, they are simple and quick to use.

Check out these 26 tips from lash loving lash-perts:

  1. Having trouble with your liner lifting and not sure why?? Sometimes it can come from having oily skin (like myself) or if you use face lotions or eye serums! Next time try putting a little setting powder down, or even a regular liner first, as a barrier before putting in your 2 coats of magnetic liner 😍
  2. Making sure that liner is dry is SO important.
  3. If the liner is too thick it might cause it to lift.
  4. Do ALL your other makeup FIRST! Liner and lashes LAST. That keeps them as clean as possible, which makes them last a lot longer!
  5. When using anchors only I put on a quick coat of siren mascara to hold my lash in place while I grab my anchors. It gives more stability for your lashes to sit in AND a better grip for your anchors.
  6. If you have any sensitivity to the liner at all or are not used to using liquid liner, by applying your own liner first it creates that base for you to trace on with the liquid liner. Makes it a little easier for you.
  7. After I put my lashes on I take a felt tip eyeliner pen and trace over the tops of my lashes to blend in the liner and the lashes, sometimes when I get them on, they may be on higher than the liner so by blending the liner they look seamless!
  8. My routine I have found the easiest is: Put on all face makeup and eyeshadow. First coat of liner. Do half my hair. Do a second coat of liner and one quick swipe of mascara to blend my lashes to the magnetic lashes. Finish my hair. Pop on my magnetic lashes and go!🙌🏻 maximizes my time!❤️
  9. Just learning anchors? Use a little magnetic mascara to hold the lash in place while you pop them on until you perfect your technique! 🔥🔥🔥
  10. Use pencil liner first (not only to act as a barrier) but also to act as a guide! It help me keep my line straight and not all crazy 😆
  11. My tip is to let the 2nd coat of the liner dry AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. It’s not a requirement at all but I also have oily lids and find this makes a ton of difference. So I do my makeup, put on one coat, then brush my teeth, put on a second coat, get dressed, sometimes even have my coffee before I put my lashes on. In fact, you can often catch me in the parking lot at work popping my lashes on before I walk in the door! 😉
  12. My tip is random, but it works. I also have oily eyelids, but I also pat down my liner with one finger (like I’m testing to make sure it’s dry) and after my lifting is SIGNIFICANTLY less. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It’s only weird if it doesn’t work, right? 😂
  13. I like to line up the end of my lash first when using anchors, that way I can get it seated just right 😍
  14. I find it easiest to put on mascara AFTER putting on the liner. That way my own lashes don’t get in the way when I’m putting on the liner.
  15. It takes THREE applications to find YOUR sweet spot and become a MASTER LASHER! Everyone’s eyes are shaped a bit differently, so where to put that first magnetic might not be the same spot for each of us! I have found time and time again, that YOU SIMPLY HAVE TO GIVE IT AT LEAST THREE APPLICATIONS, and all of a sudden….POOF…it’s like magic! You. Have. Found. Your. Sweet. Spot! You are now a MasterLasher!
  16. More than half my people end up needing to trim off one magnet to get a great fit. More than half!!!!
  17. I love Anchors only look, I put a white towel inside my sink, because momma be drinking too much coffee sometimes and I drop those suckers. The white towel catches the anchors and I don’t lose them, also I lean on my counter when I put them on. It keeps me steady so I don’t poke my eye & viola!
  18. Don’t attempt to do anchors only look with metal tweezers. It’ll only frustrate you. Get yourself a pair of plastic lash applicators. Worth every penny!
  19. Always, always store lashes in their case! This might mean throwing the case in your purse depending on what the day/night has in store!
  20. If you trim your lashes, move the little magnets in the back of the case so the lashes still fit nicely in the case! The little magnets jus slide closer together (otherwise it might look like one end of the Lash isn’t magnetizing to the case properly).
  21. For everyone saying they have this issue, it should also be noted that trimming your lashes to fit may ALSO be an issue ❤️❤️ I always have to trim a magnet length off mine ❤️ You want the inner corner to line up with the outer edge of your pupil, not to go all the way across your eye ❤️
  22. P3 pore minimizer will help keep liner on. Make sure it dries completely.
  23. When you trim your lashes, save what you trim as an extra thick anchor you can use either as an anchor, or add on top outside for extra flare ❤️
  24. Never throw your lashes away! Even after 30 uses, I trim mine up into layers and stack on top of my lash style for “new” looks!
  25. I have the same issue with oily eyelids. I use primer & concealer & eye shadow before applying the liner. And the 2nd coat I let dry 5-10 minutes 😉 Works great! ❤️
  26. Magnetic liner is the easiest to use for lash application. The mascara takes practice because it’s more liquidy. The anchors are easy once you get past the fear of applying them and removing them.
