Well look at you, eagle eye cutie pie. You discovered my latest lash secret. I’ve been asked a few times over the past couple of days about what I’m wearing on my lashes, and yes, I’ve been trying something new.
When it comes to lashes, for me it’s GO DRAG OR GO HOME! I’m flat-out wild about that dramatic false lash look, ya know? — the longer and more voluminous, the better. That’s why I’m so stoked about my current combo, which adds mad crazy length and lots of thickness at the base. And the best part? I discovered it by accident!
One day last week I had on two layers of Urban Decay Cannonball Waterproof Mascara ($20) on my top lashes, and one on the bottom. Even though Cannonball smudges a tad, it stretches my lashes to their lengthening limits and cures the curl from my lash curler (Shu know the one), so I readily accepted the tradeoff.
Later that same day while testing the NYC New York Color Mono Eye Shadows, I got a smidgen of shadow on my lashes, so I grabbed the closest tube of mascara, which happened to be Buxom Amplified Lash ($22), and added a layer of it to Cannonball, to again get my lashes nice and dark.
FAN-FRICKIN-TASTIC! Turns out Amplified and Cannonball work together like PB&J. Amplified adds the thickness and drama that I think Cannonball lacks, and the two combine to create a fantastic false-lash look.
As far as budget options, there must be tons! I bet $9 NYX Doll Eye Long Lash Mascara (for its ability to lengthen and separate lashes) would totally complement $7.25 L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black (a volumizing champ).
Do you ever combine mascaras? If so, have you come up with any cool combos lately?
