Just wanted to bring these little beauties to your attention: my two favorite summer time mascaras. In order for a mascara to become a seasons favorite they must:
A. Be easily applied,
B. Not run when I am running around town in the humid heat,
C. Not aggravate my allergies,
D. And most importantly, I need my mascara to create impact so I can flutter my lashes at my husband and in return he buys me pretty things.
These two mascaras meet the criteria and surpass it. Not only am I sporting some serious lash volume I am also loving the lash applicators.
Just to recap, for the best way to apply your mascara one must:
Sit or stand comfortably
Hold a nice size mirror compact or hand held mirror in the opposite hand that you write with
Whilst holding your head up, look down into your compact and squeeze lashes in your favorite eye lash curler (mine is SHU UEMURA) for about 8 seconds on each eye.
Next, apply your mascara whilst holding you head high and looking down into the mirror. I say this because by looking down the angle of your eyes changes and you will not get mascara smudge everywhere. I wiggle the mascara wand back and forth as I want depth at the root then I apply the mascara from root to tip to create length. I layer on about 10 mascara sweeps per eye depending on the look I am going for.
I tend not to let the mascara dry during coats as I find when you do the mascara clumps.
I apply mascara to my bottom lashes too. I like symmetry. I clean off any excess product with some tissue and I dance the tip of the wand along my lower lash line. I don’t add layer on mascara on the bottom, its more of a mascara gesture.
Poof! Like magic, my lashes are like exotic butterflies fluttering away and my husband comes home with pretty things for me!
And so, to my two favourite mascaras -
*Drum roll please*
Lancôme Hypnose Drama is a full body volume mascara that lasts all day. I love the convex brush, no clumping, no allergies! I love the smell of the Lancôme mascara too. There is something feminine about the scent.
DIORSHOW ICONIC OVERCURL Mascara has a curved brush and keeps you lashes up and happy like a push up bra all day!Builds length and volume and stays put all day!
I wear both mascaras in black as I don’t particularly like brown. I want impact when it comes to my lashes not natural so these are FABULOUS!
