Let me tell you, I SWEAR by this trick and I also have never seen anyone talk about this! This keeps your lashes looking curled and gorgeous ALL day, no joke. All you need is an eyelash curler, your fav mascara and Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes mascara in waterproof.So curl your eyes as curled as you please (there’s a happy medium, too curled and your eyelashes look SHORTER because they curl back so far you can’t see them!) and take the waterproof mascara. Use a light hand and just focus on the roots, using very little. This creates MAJOR lift. VOILA! Now apply your regular mascara and notice… it stays exactly how you curled it and your lashes look gorgeous and silky and long and NO CLUMPS. A la natural.
***note: Ive tried other waterproof mascaras and some don’t hold curl AT ALL for some reason. Maybelline the Falsies Big Eyes mascara has the benefit of super hold while allowing you to comb through your lashes with a small amount (I only use the “upper lashes” side) and it lasts forever.
WHY THIS TRICK WORKS:
♡ By using just a touch of waterproof mascara it works as a tiny barrier between the between your lashes and the regular mascara (which is water-based, hence why your lashes refuse to hold any curl throughout the day.)
♡ Super easy to remove! Its honestly just as easy to remove eye makeup with this than it would be with regular mascara. No hassle every night for the sake of gorgeous lashes.
♡ HEALTHY long lashes: Let’s face it, waterproof mascara is drying, and can be a nightmare to remove. This causes damage if you wear it daily. By this trick you get the best of both worlds. Your lashes will be super healthy and look great and because your only using a touch of it, you get the benefits (although I wouldn’t recommend going for a swim.)
Now I get lash extensions and I love them!! But this is a trick I swear by in between (especially if you have hard to curl lashes). Anyways, off to pack my bags for a trip tomorrow! XOXO
