One piece of makeup/beauty advice I continually choose to “selectively forget,” otherwise known as “blatantly ignore,” is to “never curl your lashes after you apply mascara.”
I know, I know… You run the risk of your lashes sticking to the lash curler and getting accidentally pulled out, but I’m very careful when I do it (she said the day before disaster struck), and I never squeeze too hard.
But it’s just that my lashes aren’t naturally very curly, and whenever I wear a mascara that straightens the curl from my lash curler at all, the extra squeeze just kind of holds them in place.
Uh…I probably also keep makeup longer than I should.
I’ve got some pretty old pieces from MAC (like from the decade before the 2000s) that I should probably toss, but I keep them for nostalgia-sake and their vintage packaging.
How about you? Is there any sort of commonplace or well-known beauty advice that you wantonly ignore? (It’s OK. I do it, too. )
