Mascara Files: Something NOT to do!

themasscarapost9

Hi friends!

I ALMOST didn’t make my Mascara Files post for the day! I can’t go doing that now can I! Today it’s going to be short and simple, just in case any of you guys don’t know. Ladies and gents, do not pump your mascara wand. By that, I mean, do not move it frantically up and down in the tube to try to get more on your brush. It dries out your mascara by pushing air into the tube. If you want to get more product, maybe try spinning the brush around, and a less frantic, more civil motion.

Anyway, that’s all I have to say about that! Who knows, maybe I just saved a mascara tube from drying out prematurely!

The Mascara Files: Urban Decays Perversion

Hi friends!

Short post today. I bought a sampler of Urban Decay’s Perversion mascara last week. I already own the perversion pencil liner, and it’s truly fantastic! Here’s some photos of how the mascara applies!

Perversion

My lashes are quite long, but these definitely lengthened them by a lot. It works pretty great for thickening as well. It’s easy to apply, I’ve had no clumps the past week I’ve been using it. I will probably buy the full tube once I run out of this if it doesn’t get too clumpy as it ages. You can get perversion at Sephora.

Hi friends!

For todays issue of The First Page I decided to use Topshop, a store that I adore but I only have a single piece of clothing from. It’s a more expensive store but the clothing from there is beautiful and nice quality. Prices are in pounds on the site, so keep that in mind if you need to do price conversions!

“Fresh” Hair

Hello Friends,

I don’t know about you, but I always find the first day after I wash my hair very difficult.  My hair is too “fresh” (it’s too soft, kind of frizzy, won’t keep a good tease, and has a mind of its own).

My trainer recently told me of a product that she uses for this problem – sea salt.  I will be buying it this weekend and will post results here next week!

The purpose of this post is basically if you have a solution or a remedy for “fresh” hair, post below and I will buy and try it this weekend, so I can recommend the best product for you!

The Mascara Files: Wand Types

Your wand shape will tell you a lot about what your lashes are supposed to look like when you use a mascara. A curved brush is meant to curl lashes, big crazy brushes are meant to give big fluffy lashes. Tiny rubber brushes are meant for precision work and usually make long, neat lashes. Triangular brushes put more length on the outer corners and less on the inner. Here’s a photo of some of the different brush shapes and how each applied mascara on my eyelashes.
