Every time I purchase my mascara from the department store, the salesperson inevitably asks, "Would you like to try the lash primer too?" No, thanks, just the mascara:) But after watching my beauty guru tout the benefits of applying lash primer to your lashes before mascara, I decided to give it a try.
My favorite mascara is Estee Lauder "More Than Mascara" in Rich Black. I think I first tried it in high school when I borrowed it from my very pretty friend Brandy. I've liked it ever since, even though I've tried other brands over the years. I like it because the wand has bristles that are very close together with a pointy end.
After purchasing the lash primer, I have to admit- I love it! I think it actually does make a difference in how full and thick my lashes look.
So now, my makeup routine includes curling my lashes (with a Revlon lash curler), putting on the primer, waiting a minute or two, then applying mascara. (I know some people curl their lashes after applying the primer/mascara, but I always curl mine first.)
The primer goes on kind of white, but dries clear.
I have found a drug store mascara I like too, and keep this less expensive version in my purse for touch- ups. It's Maybelline Full 'N Soft.
Do you use a lash primer? Am I the last one on board with this? What's your favorite mascara? I like pretty dramatic lashes so I apply several coats, stopping just short of the Tammy Faye look:)
And I also like to airbrush, even though I admit to going a little heavy on this one! I used PicMonkey (thanks Cassie!) to erase not only the guy in the background, but also my squint lines. I whitened my teeth and smoothed my skin. Oh, how I wish my skin was so flawless!
Hope y'all are having a great week! Only a couple more days till the long weekend!
