      Everyone hates dried out mascara! There are several tips you can use to solve this issue! It’s simple. It is also very affordable so price isn’t an issue at all! Most tricks are products found at home! This tips require very little effort as well!

 

  1. add 3-4 drops of saline solution to make the mascara less dry, and easier to use. It will last up to 3x longer and you can use this trick however many times you want!
  2. Avoid over “pumping” the mascara wand because this lets air into the mascara bottle and causes it to dry out way faster and gather clumps!
  3. Add Vaseline onto the wand and mix it into the mascara bottle, This will make the clumps go away and the mascara will go on smoother, It will also help avoid clumping.
  4. When in desperate need, add 1-2 drops of water. This will loosen up the solution and it will add up to 4-5 more uses until you can get the next mascara product!
  5. After every use, Double check to make sure the mascara lid is secure and closed very tightly. The more air you let in to the bottle, the faster it drys out!

 

My highly recommended drugstore mascara is the NYC big bold mascara. This mascara literally last me months and I don’t ever have any issues with clumps or it drying out! Its bold, and the brush works amazing to prevent any clumps from happening!

Applying False Lashes Underneath Real Lashes? YAY OR NAH?!

   Applying False Lashes Underneath Real Lashes? YAY OR NAH?!

 

It has been trending all over social media! If you haven’t heard this video of a technique went viral! A MUA applied her false lashes under her real lashes for a beautiful more natural look! It indeed seems hard, but it is possible! It makes the lashes band disappear and look like they are your real lashes! It is so amazing and a smart technique. The only trouble is keeping the glue out your eyes! To prevent glue from burning and hurting your eye, let it dry 15 seconds more than usually. This will let the glue get more tacky and they wont slip and slide! Another tip is to trim the lashes into 2-3 pieces! This will give them a more perfect fit to the curve of your eye. It will also help the ends from sticking up. Below are some of my personal favorite MUAs trying this technique! You can get a taste on whether this technique is worth a try!
