The Mascara Files: Skip the line!

themasscarapost9

Hi friends!

Not past 12:00 in my timezone so YAY it’s still Mascara Files day! Today I want to mention something that you possibly haven’t considered before if you are a huge eyeliner wearer like I used to be. To get the most out of your mascara, by which I mean the most dramatic lengths and volume, skip the eyeliner, or even take baby steps and tone it down!

I’m not telling you to go throw all your eyeliner in the garbage and never use it again, that’s silly, but if you want people to notice those big lashes you have from all the tips you’ve acquired from previous mascara files, try skipping the liner, and see how great your lashes look as a stand-alone feature!

So what does skipping the liner do anyway?

When you wear dark liner around your eyes, it can take away from your eyelashes because part of your lashes blend in with your dark lines around your eyes, taking away some of the length and drama to them.

By no means am I anti-eyeliner. I love it. I just want to give you guys some other options you may never have thought of when it comes to mascara.

Hope this has been helpful and informative!

Don’t Overlook This Brand! Surprising quality for insanely cheap!

Hi friends!

Just wanted to do a quick post on a brand I’ve grown to love in the past little while that I used to always overlook. I think the first product I ever bought from them was a grey nail polish with orange duochrome, that was about a year ago, and I really liked it! I only went back to it after my hairdresser recommended their lipgloss as a great soothing lip moisturizer.

And that brand is…

The Mascara Files: No Eyelash Curler? No Problem!

themasscarapost9

Hi Friends!

I’m going to be honest with you today. I really don’t like eyelash curlers. I don’t believe I own one anymore, it’s been about 6 years since I’ve used one, and I honestly don’t regret it. I’ve previously posted about one of my woes with eyelash curlers, well, more about how people USE the eyelash curlers, but hey.

Anyhow this post is actually about a method that can help get you sky high lashes without clamping down on them with a curler. If you have an old credit plastic/cardstock card lying around, use it to help apply your mascara! This works on both top and lower lashes. Just lay your card behind your lashes, and apply your mascara as usual! If you apply your mascara while your top lashes are ON the card, it’ll curl them upwards more than just applying mascara to them!
