Eye Opening Secret #2

Dear Friends and Readers,

There is another eye-opening secret coming your way, so gentleman cover your eyes and ears while I dish about the content of my makeup bag again.  Ladies, you are going to love this because if in a previous post I dished about Asian women and mascaras, this time is all about the basics and how to look even more marvelous.

Let’s say that you have been eating your protein and taking your biotin pills and carefully applying your FairyDrops Scandal Queen Mascara, and you still do not have the desired effect.  Let’s also say that you do not want to get lash extensions because they are kind of bad for you and nor you want to use Latisse because you don’t have glaucoma after all and why risking your eye color for nothing, right? What is a girl to do if she wants some substantial lashes? Praying does not work.  Crying does not work.  Cursing does not work…

… PRIMER WORKS! It coats your lashes in a white balm that conditions and moisturize the lashes and at the same time allows the mascara to stay put.  You need to apply it before mascara and let it set for a minute… yes you WILL look like you have snowflakes on your lashes, but it is also a great guide for applying mascara because you will want to cover all the white and will not miss a spot. For the ultimate lash coverage you might want to apply mascara also to the top of the lashes, so that no stray white lash will escape.

But let’s talk about brands, these 3 lash primers are the ones I have purchased over and over. They are also the most reliable in terms of color retention and volume boosting properties.

1) DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum & Primer

2) Lancome XL Cils Booster

3) MultiplEYE™ Clinically-Proven Natural Lash Enhancing Primer
