Mascara Cocktail

I have been getting a lot of questions lately about my lashes. Are they false eyelashes? Which mascara do you use? We all want those false-looking, full, thick and long lashes without all the gluing and waiting, so here are my lash secrets. Enjoy!

I use a mascara cocktail, created from three different types of mascara.

1st- I use a coat of Cover Girl Lash Blast to coat all my lashes

2nd- I apply Smashbox Hyper Lash to more extremely separate and extend my lashes

3rd- I apply Maybelline One by One to add more product and thickness to my lashes

I then alternate between all three in no particular order to add thickness (Maybelline), then define (Smashbox) or spread the mascara up and out (CG), back and forth in a zig-zag motion, coating and separating until I achieve the thickness and length I desire.

Remember to put your wand in your mascara tube and twist. Do not pump in and out as that pushes air in the tube, resulting in a dry/worn out mascara. I usually go through 2 tubes of the CG a month. Remember to throw out your mascara every 3 months as they are a breeding ground for bacteria in them. If you forget how long you have had it that is a good sign, if it smells or has changed in texture then you know it's time to toss it as well.

Give these tips a try and let me know what you think :)
