Mascara is Evil - Page 2

Heres a little secret so it won't clump

Before you put it on take some toilet paper or a paper towel and gently dab the mascara wand on it...it gets all the extra mascara off so you don't put too much on so it doesn't clump. I don't go anywhere without my mascara. And I never have a problem with clumping or weird spider looking eyes any more

I'm another one who won't go out without mascara. I used to have thick, long, dark lashes (which is somewhat unusual in a blonde). But I've had cataracts operations in both eyes, and at the time they used to cut your eyelashes off. That was just horrible. They grew back, but it seems to me they are lighter now. Or maybe that is just the natural aging process, LOL. So I use a dark mascara to help with that. I need all the help I can get!

OMG why didn't I know about lash tinting when my father got married?!?!?! I flippin' cried all day (so did my sister...when her step-son asked his dad why we were both crying so much on a happy day, his answer was perfect: "Because girls do that.") and even with waterproof mascara it still didn't look so hot. I would have loved to have foregone that whole mess on that particular day!

How long does lash-tinting last? That would be pretty cool. But at my age, I'd probably still use mascara!

but it's really only effective for people w/really light lashes. mine are dark, & i couldn't see the difference.
my best friend has white lashes [she's an albino] & it makes a big difference for her!

I rarely wear makeup anymore. Haven't for over 10 years. The once or twice a year that I do I usually just use some light blush, some brow powder, a bit of black liner pencil (well smudged so it's not obvious) and some lipstick. Takes all of 1 minute if that, to apply.

Years ago I was a heavy makeup wearer. Foundation, powder, liquid eyeliner, sometimes 5 eye shadows at a time, blush, mascara, brow pencil, lip liner, lipstick, nail polish, concealer sticks, camaflage colours for dark circles/skin rudiness...you name it, I wore it. Actually I think I still have all that stuff sitting in my bathroom not being used.

I can't stand mascara. I haven't worn that stuff in more than 20 years. I used to wear contact lenses and found that even the non flaking mascara flaked and caused my eyes to feel dry and irritated my contact lenses. I don't need nor want my eye lashes to look like they are 3 inches long.

Au Natural is so much better. I can't tell you how many compliments I get from guys since I stopped wearing makeup.

The girl who is the "go between" for me and my long term disability company is very pretty. But she ruins it all by packing on the makeup so thick that she looks like she had a session with a mortitian. And that's at 10am. I'd hate to see how much she wears if she is going out in the evening.

the only makeup I wear is mascara and cover up so it's not to bad just wearing that since you look somewhat like your not wearing any makeup

Tinting lasts about 3 weeks.

The very best (eye) makeup remover, for any type of skin, is Unscented Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser. It's difficult to get, though some Walgreen's stores have it. It's particularly suitable for contact lens wearers, because it gets all the mascara off without a greasy residue.

I've never been one for eye make up, but I decided to put on some mascara last night when I went out. I very rarely wear mascara, but I got a free sample size one a few weeks ago when I bought something else. On the spur of the moment, I decided to try it out. Surprisingly, I got it on without making a mess and was totally impressed - it made my eyelashes long and curled I couldn't feel I was wearing anything either. I'm a total convert now! I wore a small amount of brown eye liner too and I felt so grown up wearing eye make up

I've had my eyelashes tinted before too. I have dark lashes so it doesn't make a huge difference, but I tend to go for the black and I get both upper and lower lashes done. The result looks as though I have a very fine line of eyeliner - just gives a bit of definition to my eyes which is great for every day.

I Wanna Get Mine Done Now! I use all mineral makeup except for the eyeliner and mascara and I find it always comes off and I have to keep reapplying. the mineral makeup is EXCELLENT though.

I only tend to wear mascara when I'm at school, college or horseriding. A lot of the time it's more of the 'I can't be bothered' case so I just don't!

For the past year or so, every mascara I try makes my eyes burn and water. I'm even allergic to Clinique which is supposed to be non-allergenic.

I've pretty much stopped wearing makeup but do "doll up" a bit when going out.

After a while no matter what eye makeup I use, I have burning watery eyes. I've also been having a horrible time with eye allergies in general. So sometimes I have burning watery eyes even without makeup. I tried wearing makeup again for a while this week, but think I'm going back to not. I can't wear powder/foundations because of contact allergies/rosacea. Some powders/foundations make me break out in a rash, others just itch like mad.

I do like to wear pretty pink lip gloss though.
