Let’s Talk Mascara

Mascara is a girls best friend, after diamonds of course. My go-to look is always foundation, highlighter and tons of mascara. The more mascara the better! Mascara is easily my favorite product of makeup, simply because my natural hair is very light so without makeup, my eyelashes are almost nonexistent and once I put mascara on I feel like a new person. I think mascara makes any look complete. Finding the right one can be very challenging. I’ve tried so many mascara products and I think I finally found the one for me! In this post, I’m going to be sharing my mascara tips and tricks + a review on the product I use & sharing my favorite drugstore mascaras.

Too Faced – Better Than Sex Mascara

Rating: 10/10

Price: $$ (for mascara I think it is expensive, but for the quality of the mascara I think the price is fair)

This mascara has many reviews online, ranging from “the best product on earth” to “don’t waste your time.” I for one am someone who believes this really is the best mascara on earth. Many people often tell me, “how do you use that mascara it’s so clumpy and heavy” and some even tell me it’s not black enough. I disagree with all those people. This mascara works so well for me. It lengthens and darkens my lashes making them look fuller than they are and it’s not heavy on my eyes. I wear this mascara everyday, and almost everyday I am in class for 5 hours and this mascara does not hurt my eyes.

The Product, Tips & Tricks:

As you can see from the above pictures, my eyelashes are almost impossible to see. The Better Than Sex Mascara makes them dark and full. My favorite thing about this mascara is how much it opens my eyes. If you look at the first picture, the mascara really opens my eye and makes it look bigger.

The Trick:

I actually learned this trick from Carli Bybel on YouTube and it changed my life. I use the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder for this trick. Click on “Carli Bybel” to watch her video on what to do. You don’t need to wear concealer for this to work. I don’t wear concealer and I put the setting powder right on top of the foundation under my eyes and it works just as well!

Favorite Drugstore Mascaras (Maybelline)

I’ve actually only used Maybelline mascaras from the drugstore. Maybelline is my favorite drugstore product so I guess I’ve always stuck with it for mascara as well. I used drugstore mascara when I’m doing a no makeup/makeup soft look just to really give my lashes color because of how light they are.

I hope you all enjoyed this post on Mascara! It’s my absolute favorite makeup product to use. I think I’d die if someone took it away from me forever. If you’ve used this mascara before, let me know your thoughts on it below in the comments!
