This past winter I really gave my face a break. Winter is definitely the time of year where my face starts to break out, the lack of vitamin D makes my skin feel and look dead and lifeless. This winter instead of covering up like I usually do with foundations and concealers, I hydrated my face and drew the attention away from my skin and onto my lashes.
I’ve never wanted to try lash extensions. I have a terrible habit of rubbing my eyes and being a little aggressive when it comes to washing my face, so lash extensions would never work for me. I’d end up pulling them out before the week is up. But mascara, mascara is something that I can get on board with.
This winter I tried a lot of mascaras and was able to find the ones that I love, and the ones that I wasn’t so fond of. Step 1: Always, always, always use a primer. I have used both Lancome’s Cils Booster XL and also Clinique’s Lash Building Primer and I think I love them both equally. They both lengthen and coat fully which is all you really need in a primer. They both protect your eyelashes and I have noticed a lot less eyelashes falling out when I take my make up off at night.
My next step comes from Target. Yes this $6 mascara has been my favorite literally since I was in high school. Maybelline’s Full & Soft volumizes my eyelashes and makes them look super full. Which is great for my super thin eyelashes.
The next three mascaras I have been rotating. Clinique’s Lash Power small bristles separate all of my lashes to make them even fuller than with just the Full & Soft. Mary Kay has a very cool brush that both volumizes and lengthens depending which way you hold the brush. This is one of my new favorite mascaras because it is an easy one to throw in your bag and it literally does whatever you need.
My newest mascara for night time is Lancome’s Hypnose Doll Lashes. The pointed brush with wide bristles makes your natural eyelashes look like an amazing pair of falsies I love it! It’s the perfect these are my real lashes mascara, and you will have everyone thinking you are lying.
