Are you in a mascara slump? Can't find one that does what it claims to do? Believe me, I've been there and I believe I've finally found the perfect combination of 2 mascaras, that together (drum roll please...) give both length and volume, maintain curl AND doesn't clump. I know what you're thinking...AND yes, it is possible.
And I think I've got it down to a science.
The mascara lineup and their claims:
L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara: L'oreal states: "enhances your lashes with intense length and unique lash by lash separation. Precision Brush lengthens lashes up to 60%" (via. website) Cost: $ 8-10
breakdown: this mascara is a wetter formula (if you prefer a drier formula ...stick with me!), with a smaller comb-like brush. It is extremely good at lengthen but can fall short when it comes to holding a curl or creating volume, but it really does make your eyelashes a million miles long.
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara: L'oreal states: "soften and build lashes up to 5X their natural thickness, quickly thickens and builds lashes in a single application for a full and dramatic look." (via website) Cost: $ 5-7
breakdown: this is a drier formula (told yah, to stick with me) with your classic bristle-type brush [Dupe alert: also suppose to be a good cheaper alternative to Dior's Diorshow mascara] this brush is good at getting to the root of your lashes to create volume and hold curl. This is why...
TOGETHER they are the ultimate combination of awesome; even for my -mediocre at best- lashes!
Application: (attention: extreme close ups of my eyeball ahead! haha)
|to start, my eye without any eye makeup on! As you can see, I have stumpy, barely there lashes!|
Before applying mascara remember to CURL YOUR LASHES, this is will make a big difference in the way your lashes turn out!
|1st step: Applying voluminous and wiggling at the base of lashes!|
|2nd step: 1st coat of telescopic.|
|results of 2nd step!|
|3rd step: applying telescopic again, focusing more on the tips my lashes.|
That's it! Not too hard or complicated, I know it may seem a little time consuming but it should only take a few minutes of your morning routine and it WILL make a difference, I promise!
