Make It Lash: My Mascara Routine.

 The ONLY mascara trick you'll ever need to know!

Are you as obsessed with your lashes as I am? I think I have a problem when it comes to big, bold lashes. I am constantly buying more mascara, want to FINALLY know how to get falsies on correctly, and even tried eyelash extensions about a month ago (a story I HAVE to share soon). I need help. To keep my obsession in check and to share with you, I have decided to start another new series that I am calling 'Make It Lash'. I need to talk about lashes on a regular basis and I think you will benefit too.

Before I get onto new discoveries, I want to tell you about my current favorite mascara routine. It's an odd one, but it is working really well for me. It is actually a three step process that involves two products and about two minutes. The two products: COVERGIRL LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara "Clump Crusher" and Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara "Star".

Step One

I apply one layer of Clump Crusher as a base coat. I do this rather quickly as it is only a base coat.

Step Two

I slowly apply Star mascara to my upper and lower lashes, being careful to use each side of the brush to get deep into the base of my lashes and then extending them at the tips.

Step Three

I carefully apply Clump Crusher as a top coat to deepen the color and plump up the volume. Using this last and as a hearty third coat ensures that I get the look I want with no clumps.

COVERGIRL LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara sells for about $6.99 at drugstores and Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara sells for $28.00 at Sephora.

Do you have a mascara routine?

I love this routine! I hope you don;t mind if I copy it myself Terri!!!
I will say that that Clump Crusher Mascara is no joke. How did Covergirl get so good lately?
CoverGirl mascaras ROCK! I have never gotten my hands on a tube of Clump Crusher. Definitely need to try it!
I love LashBlast by CoverGirl and the brush is tdf. This one looks sort of like it. If I see it at Walgreens when I go to pick up my prescription today, I am going to finally buy it. I might be layering them to.
Great idea. But It wouldn't look so good on my lashes. I only apply two coats
very cool routine! I would have love to see some of the results!
Have you tried the mascara Doll Lashes by Lancôme? It's amazing! I gives fullness and lift without clumping. One or two coats and that's it. I don't even use lash stiletto for length. Ugh I love it! Lol
Hmm I'll have to check it out! If this doesn't work for anyone, I use a two step, two product variation,
Try Dior Diorshow Black Out Mascara; I use this as my base coat, I only apply I coat evenly to all my top lashes, although I do NOT start from the bottom & wiggle the brush at my lash line & work my way up ( this leaves them too wet & too think initially).
Next I use Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara; I start on the inside corner of my eye working my way out. This coat you will want to start from the lash line & work your way up. This brush allows my lashes to fan out with definition & the Diorshow has the length & volume.
Great combo I think. If anyone try's it out let me know how it works for you!
Sephora carries both of those products.
I've found that Lancome's DOLL LASHES mascara accomplishes all of that in one. I get full, long, gorgeous lashes in a single application. You should try it out. I got it in a gift bag with perfume my boyfriend bought me and I'm totally obsessed. I have to go buy more of it asap!
