How was your weekend? Mine was just right--I hung out with friends talking until the restaurant closed and the owner made us leave. And I've just about kicked this cold, so it was a great weekend overall. Now onto my Quick Tip!
I have long lashes, but they aren't curly. In order to get that look, I use an eyelash curler. However, after a few hours my big, curly lashes lose their steam, regardless of the brand/type of mascara (yes, even curling mascaras). If I was going out somewhere later, I'd have to recurl them. Sometimes the recurling would make my lashes stick together and it looked worse. One morning while applying hairspray I thought, Why isn't there an eyelash spray to hold curled lashes? This was my thought process: hair loses its curl by humidity...water. Simply put, mascara comes in regular and waterproof. When I apply waterproof mascara the water doesn't affect my lashes, like an anti-frizz serum. But I don't really use waterproof often...
Long, boring story short--this is how I get my lashes to stay curled all day:
- Curl lashes
- Take water-proof mascara wand and wipe the wand so there's very little product left. The brand/type doesn't matter.
- Apply the lightest coat to your lashes--just once through.
- Take whatever brand/type mascara you'd like to apply (do as many coats as you'd like) and your lashes will stay curled all day.
To further prove my point, here are my lashes after 6 hours. I curled both, used the same curling mascara, one coat each, but my right (your left) eye didn't have the waterproof base coat. I didn't wear eyeliner or shadow on either eye. Yes, I felt/looked odd, but I wanted to show this really works. Try it!
No waterproof base
