The new Lancome Le Curler, $23, available June 2012
Well…sometimes I use my lash curler before and after applying mascara.
I know! I’m bad. It’s a big no-no among many makeup artists who say that curling lashes coated with mascara leads to broken lashes.
I don’t do it all the time. Only when my lashes straighten out right after away I finish applying my mascara, and I’m always very careful to exert just the slightest pressure on the curler before ever-so-gently easing my lashes out of them so they don’t stick to the pads and break off.
Yup, I’m a rule breaker, but you know what they say about rules (they’re meant to be broken).
Oh, and sometimes I like to wear my darkest, moodiest lipsticks in the middle of spring and summer. So what if it’s 90 degrees out? If the mood to wear an opaque matte plum to the pool strikes in the middle of August, I don’t even hesitate.
Why not, right? It’s fun to mix things up.
How about you? What makeup “rules” do you like to break?
