Mascara has become a staple in our daily beauty regime! The never ending mission to make them look effortlessly full, volupscious and perfectly curled has us scrambling for several tubes in the morning.
Some have 3 or more, some are loyal to just one, others layer multiple brands together and others just want for them to grow back. With so many choices how do we pick the right one for us?
Think about it for a second, how do you want your lashes to look?
Do you want fuller, thicker, voluminous lashes?
Do you want longer, separated and curlier lashes ?
Are your lashes brittle, sparse or do they the fall off?
By addressing our concern first and then adding multiple benefits most of us can create our desired look. Also application is key, clean your brush once or twice a week. Get a little make up remover in a paper towel, or with your make up wipes, and gently wipe off the accumulated gunk on the brush. The brush is what’s delivering the promised effect, so cleaning it often helps maximize the benefits on a daily basis.
Ask questions when shopping for mascara, read the labels, try it on. Ask the beauty experts what they like, and why.
I’m not crazy about water-proof mascara for everyday, not necessary unless you’re going to be crying or playing in the raining, is better if you have to go that route water-resistant. Water proof mascara’s tend to be abrasive on the eyelash plus all the extra ingredients can make then weak and brittle
Primers are great ways to enhance and protect the lash, especially if you have brittle, weak sparse lashes. There also several lash treatments that can be applied at night to protect, fortify strengthen your lashes as well make them grow.
Don’t share your mascara, replace it every 2 to 3 months, don’t pump it back in forth in the container, it will dry it out and attract bacteria, make sure you close it properly.
Last but not remove you mascara off at night, don’t fall sleep with your make-up on. There are several eyemake-up removers that can help you remove the most pigmented mascaras out there. Find the right one for you and use it.
