Hate when your applying mascara and then -whoops!- you slip and

Next time your applying mascara and get it on your skin, don't freak! It comes off in seconds once it's dry.

get mascara under your eye? Don’t rush to clean it up just yet, it turns out waiting a little bit can help.

When mascara is still wet trying to get it off your skin can just make it worse, it can smudge it everywhere! But once mascara is dry it becomes flacky and by just rubbing it with your sleeve (that’s what i dp for quick public fix-ups) it easly comes off.

So keep your skin mascara free, with this little tip.


Lash curlers can be a real hassle. They can cost tons of money (seriously, who needs a gold plaited lash curler!?), and have you ever

Who knew that by just changing the way you applied mascara could leave you with wonderfully curled lashes.

piched your eyelid skin by accident? Not fun! And I’m sure we’ve all heard the “hot spoon against your lashes trick”, but ig ou guys are as clusmy as me, you probably don’t want to be pointing a hot spoon at your eye! Talk about an embarrising trip to the emergencey room. Plus has that tip even worked for any of you? But I have a new little tip that won’ possibly lead to you stabbing yourself in the eye, and works!

Try applying your mascara a little differently-

  1. Take the mascara brush and place it at the base of your lashes.
  2. Wiggle it a little, this will coat and reach every lash.
  3. Now twirl the brush upwards, spinning it as you go.
  4. Next, well there is not next, your done!

See wasn’t that easy? And mosly risk free? So live saftely, and with curled lashes, by just applying your mascara slightly differently.

So avoid the dreaded “gift look”, with my amazing gifts!

Recently I went to my local CVS and because my old mascara was past it’s prime I decided I’d wing it and buy a new mascara.

Wowza, look at that brush!

Wowza, look at that brush!

From the title I think you can tell what it is was but I’l tell you anyways, it was Maybelline’s The Colossal Volum’ Express.  It was pretty cheap (7.49) so I thought what the hay, extra bonus was the super cute bottle!

After getting home and I putting it on, and the first thing I noticed was that this mascara was BLACK. Like midnight no stars or moon black. So it’s definitely a night mascara. Second thing I noticed was how full and long my lashes were looking, they were huge! The last thing I noticed? The flakes on my lashes and the rub off. At the end of the day I came home to find big smudges under my eyes, so not cool.


  • Dramatic, perfect for night.
  • Adds so much volume and length.
  • Smells like… nothing.
  • Cute bottle 😉


  • Dramatic, too black for day.
  • Leaves flakes on my lashes.
  • Rubs off easily.
  • Difficult to take off.

*** 3 out of 5 stars.

Should you  buy this product- If you want drama, the Yes.

I love mascara, but my problem is I want to change my looks for different days, some days natural, and some days dramatic. But my problem is I don’t want to buy a bunch of different mascaras, I just want 1. And now I do. How is that possible? Because you mascara isn’t what makes your lashes look natural or dramatic, it’s how you apply it.

To create volume, take your mascara brush and place it at the bottom lashes. Then wiggle it up and away a couple times, until you have as much or as little mascara as you want. To create length swivel your brush around until the tip is pointing towards you eye and then gently press it against the tips of lashes. I now it sounds a little dangerous for clumsier people like me, but really, it’s not very hard. And lastly, to create a natural look place the mascara wand in the middle of your lashes and gently move up.

So rock all different types of lashes, without spending a billion bucks.
