Mascara Trick

One day whilst having an OCD moment, I felt the urge to sort through my makeup and reorganize it because it looked a tad messy.

When I reached my mascara drawer I found I had about 15, which is way too much for just one set of eyes. Many had been purchased, used once and never seen the light of day since. I've managed to whittle it down to 10. I threw out ones that had dried up or that I just plain hated (Diorshow Blackout that means you). The only mascara that I have used consistently is Maxfactors 2000 Calorie.

In order to not let any more mascaras go to waste i've been pairing them up and applying both. If you hate clumpy lashes this technique is probably not for you.

Today I paired MAC's Fibrelash and Covergirl's Lash blast.

This is a great tip in my opinion if you don't want to be wasteful with products and i'm really happy with the results i'm getting.

What are your current beauty tips?


  1. I always apply two diff mascaras, one for length and separation then one on top for volume!xx

  2. What a great idea!! I need to throw out my Diorshow too. Hated it.
