Ahhhh, mascara, what would I do without you? As someone with very short, blonde eyelashes, mascara is a crucial step in my makeup routine. Up until recently, I always just kept one tube of mascara in my makeup bag and once it started to run out, I’d go by a new one. I now have probably four or five tubes in my bag at a time. Let’s me honest: mascara isn’t a “one size fits all” thing when it comes to your daily routine, a night out, etc. As a general rule of thumb, I use my drugstore mascaras for daily use and keep all of my other mascaras (i.e. Tarte, Lancôme, Too Faced) for longer days, events, and nights out.
If you’re looking for a new mascara (or two) to add to your rotation or hate the one you’re currently using, give these ones a try:
Dior Lash Primer – No matter what mascara I am using, I always start by curling my eyelashes and applying the Dior lash primer. I’m telling you, it’s a game changer. The white color of the primer allows your mascara to apply more intensity, which in turn makes your lashes appear longer and more dense.
Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara – If you haven’t tried this mascara yet, you are seriously missing out! It’s one of Maybelline’s newest mascaras and I use it almost every day. If you’re looking for a mascara that leaves your lashes looking long with a lot of volume, this mascara is going to change the game for you. The best part? It keeps your lashes separated, making clumpy lashes a thing of the past.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – The holy grail. I’ve been using the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for YEARS. No matter what your eyelash sitch is, this mascara will give the appearence of fake lashes, that’s how good it is. Full, thick, and long. My one complaint is that it runs out/dries up quickly so I try to only use it when I have an event, heading out for a full day, blog photos, and date night!
The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is part of Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty and will be on sale for ONLY $11.50 on Saturday, April 7!
Maybelline Mega Plush Volum Express Mascara – This mascara had been my go-to for yeas and I actualy preferred it over all of the mascara’s I had tried (aka a lot) but have recently started using it less, but only because of my new found obsession with the Total Temption mascara I mentioned above! It does a great job lengthening your lashes and adding volume, and with a price tag under $10, I can’t say no.
What are your favorite mascaras?
