have you missed my makeup for a minimalist series? me too!
tarte lash curlers // i bought these at sephora last year because they had an offer on them (they still do – click the link), but didn’t really see the point of them so put them away. a few days ago, for whatever reason, i decided to bring them back out and i am loving them! i finally see the point of curling your lashes – my lashes look longer and thicker, my eyes are more open, and it’s an easy extra step in my routine. i think the difference this time around is that i’m using mascara, whereas before i was trying to use them without mascara and then my eyelashes just looked unnatural.
covergirl lashblast volume mascara in black/brown // i’ve mentioned before my struggles to find a mascara i love. i have been enjoying the pacifica stellar gaze mascara for quite some time, but instead of ordering a new tube i figured i would just go to the drugstore. i loved the covergirl lashblast length mascara, but have never really tried anything else in the line. this really is a great mascara! it’s a bit thickening but not too gloopy – it’s really very natural looking, especially in black/brown which is a very subtle shade. i like the longer plastic bristles and it’s very easy to apply. i used to always use plastic wand mascaras, recently switching over to fiber wands for a more natural look, but i’m definitely going back to the other side.
