Happy Weekend Friends!

I wasn’t able to get a post up yesterday, but better late than never! I’ve gotten lots of questions about what mascara I use so I thought I’d share my favorites with you today. I know it sounds like overkill, but I actually use FIVE different mascaras daily. And no, this isn’t necessary, but it’s how I achieve long voluminous lashes. Why just lengthen or volumize, when you can do both?! Above you’ll see the order in which I apply going left to right. To clarify: I also use Loreal Voluminous Primer on my bottom lashes before applying my bottom lash mascara (aka Dior Addict It-Lash). I’ve said this many times before and I”ll say it again…this is the ONLY mascara I’ve ever used that doesn’t transfer underneath my eye throughout the day. And because it’s pricey I reserve it only for my lower lashes. 
I like to apply to the bottom lashes first and then move up to the top. Once again, I apply my favorite lash primer (this stuff is amazing and affordable) and then move onto Essence Extreme Crazy Volume which I actually think does more lengthening than volumizing. The next product I use is Marc Jacob’s Velvet Noir. If I could only choose one mascara it would be this one, hands down. It does a wonderful job of volumizing and adds a “pow!” to your lashes. Last, I use Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect on the tips of my lashes to make them look super long. These Essence mascaras are crazy affordable! 
Quick Tip: After applying the lash primer allow it to set on your lashes for at least a minute. Also, when layering mascara, give it 30 seconds before the next application. This helps you to build upon the layer below without creating a clumpy mess.
