Makeup Monday (well almost)



It used to be that about half way through the workday I would look like I didn’t have any mascara on. So I think it was last year – I started layering my mascara.

I have found that the best way to do this:

First curl your top lashes with an eyelash curler (my favorite is Japonesque).

STEP 1   Apply primer and wait just a few seconds

STEP 2   Apply 1 coat of a lengthening mascara

STEP 3   Follow with 1 coat of a volumizing mascara.

I’ve used LOTS of Mascara’s:  Revlon, Maybelline, Cover Girl,  Lacome, Clinique, Estee, Napoleon, Smashbox, Tarte – but I believe the secret is more in the layering than the mascara.

RIGHT NOW my favorites are…..

STEP 1   Clinique Primer

STEP 2   L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara – it has a really neat brush with a flat side to lengthen lashes and the other side is a comb to separate lashes.

STEP 3   Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies – it fills in the gaps and has a flexible curved wand.

Mascara only lasts 2 -3 months so I’m sure I’ll try something new with the next purchase….and who knows….it might be my new favorite.

What’s your favorite mascara???

Make it a GREAT week.
