I don't know may coats I put, but definitely a lot. I have very small eyes so I kind a obsessed about making them look bigger by having a nice full lashes.

with diorshow mascara you keep brushing it on and it won't clump up. it's fantastic. you can totally control the length and weight of your lashes.

Mascara can't really lenghten your lashes, it colours them. You can get the job done with one coat. Sometimes when I'm talking to women who are wearing a ton of mascara it looks like I'm staring into their eyes as though I'm interested in what they're saying, but really what I'm looking at is all that clumpy mascara. Plus, I'm a face-toucher and always end up with racoon eyes if I put on extra coats.

two to three - my eyelashes need more length then they do volume.

2 in the morning and then usually one in the evening to touch it up

when i wear it, at least 2, sometimes more, esp when i want a more dramatic look, then who know, cause sometimes it takes forever to perfect my lashes, other times, it take a min.

I hate clumpy looking I always take a tissue and wipe off the extra gunk off the wand first. I curl my lashes (ALWAYS), and then I apply 1 coat. I occasionally add a very quick second coat when I am done applying my other makeup and finshed getting ready, if I dont think I covered all the bases.

2 or 3 in the morning and if I touch up, I add more.

ok, maybe i'm just silly, but i can't figure out how to wear mascara. when i wear black mascara, even one coat looks flaky and clumpy and weird. so now i wear clear mascara, one or two coats, primarily to remove the remanants of eye shadow that fall onto my lashes while I'm putting on my makeup. but i continually see these women in my office with long, perfectly curled lashes. how do they do it?

Oh and Missy, I wish I had full lashes too!! Mine are so short, every guy I've ever dated has had prettier lashes than me!

I don't wear makeup unless I'm going out at night, which is about 1-2 nights/week. It's kind of ironic given my obsession with finding the perfect beauty products & the amount of money I drop on makeup... anyway, I go with 2 coats when doing makeup because I like to use very lightweight mascara - I can't stand clumps!

One, unless I'm going out at night, then I'll add another coat.

I would say 1-2 but I have done more in the past when I have messed up. I hate putting mascara on. I use it but I hate to put it on.

1 to 2 depends on the whole eye look

I usually do a couple strokes at once and let it dry. If I do more than 'one' coat, it gets clumpy no matter what brand I use.
