Mascara and Primer

In general, mascaras come in two formulas: lengthening and/or thickening. Any other formulas, in my opinion, are obsolete. The results of any mascara are a lot depended on the design of the wand. Mascara wands come in all shapes and sizes. It is up to us to scout for one(s) that suit us best.  When applying mascara, start at the base of the lashes and slightly wiggle your way up. Add as many coats as you like; I like to apply more coats to the outer lashes for an ultra feminine look. Be sure to wipe any excess product off the wand to avoid clumps.

Using an emollient base for your mascara to condition the lashes and deepen the effect of the formula. Lancome Cils Booster is a fabulous mascara base; it adds more of a lengthening/thickening effect to the lashes and moisturizes them as well. You could even use it on your lashes before bed to condition the lashes as you sleep. An alternative to this pricier option is SRS (Smith's Rosebud Salve) or even Vaseline.

I thought this was an interesting device to use.  Myrabelle Mascara Shield.  Do you have it?  Would you purchase it?  This little device can be purchased here 

Keep it beautiful

I use this Lancome mascara base. I researched a lot before I selected this one. It. Is. Fabulous! I could not find anything to really compare with how it works with my lashes.

As for the shield - I would use it to keep my eyeshadow from "falling" down on my skin below my lower lashes. I use my finger right now and it makes me crazy. I have to hold my finger across my lower lash and apply the eyeshadow with the other hand. I feel like a contortionist! If I don't do it tho, I always have to deal with eyeshadow colors falling there and then me trying to get it off. :P Did you say where we could buy that?
