~Good Morning Beauties!~
Can you guess what todays post is about? Ready?…Lashes!!!
In my never ending quest for beautiful lush long Amazonian lashes, I have found some great products that have become my personal favorites. First we can address mascara…I don’t really know any woman that runs out the door without a nice coat of mascara on her lashes. If one exists, we need to talk! I am a fan of the blackest of black mascara. That’s not to say that I don’t find the browns likeable and have even allowed my 13 year old daughter to wear the clear mascara. She’s absolutely darling without makeup of any kind and normally wears nothing at all. Now let me get back on course…
In said quest I have found that I cannot EVER find just ONE mascara that offers it all. Nothing creates lush AND long AND full AND Amazonian lashes…no one product. So…I use TWO mascaras! Not unusual I find from my never ending perusal of beauty blogs and videos. I have found the combination of these two Loreal products satisfy my immediate lash needs (we all know I’m not the patient type). I first apply a coat of Loreal Telescopic in black for lengthening and then apply a generous coat of Loreal Voluminous for thickening volume in blackest black.
For me, it works together to create longer fuller lashes. While I have not yet achieved Amazonian Lash Nirvana…it’s a close second.
While on the subject of lashes…we know it couldn’t end quite so quickly…
I decided to try my hand at false eyelashes. After all, what could it harm?…ahem. Let it be known that I do have MAC Eyelashes in my stash waiting for my bravery to surface. But for this attempt I armed myself with Ardell Natural #135 lashes and my Duo Adhesive. I attempted FOUR times to apply the rascally little wisp but was quite unsuccessful. Perhaps I will try again tonight…I always feel stressed and rushed when trying to apply lashes…which is a single mom thing I’m sure. I don’t know that I will ever be able to spend the amount of time in front of a mirror on a busy school morning between making lunches and “mom I need help with my hair” needed to apply them. But I am a brave soul and shall persevere.
I will only state this…You may have won the battle my bushy friends, but I will be back!!!
