If your unruly lashes refuse to hold a curl after you apply mascara, try coaxing them into being more cooperative by starting with a thin layer of waterproof mascara first. Then, follow it up with your regular go-to mascara.
Starting with the waterproof formula should help your lashes hold their curl longer and discourage them from quickly falling out of attention.
This was a recent discovery for me, because something strange happened to my lashes when I got pregnant…
All of a sudden (seriously, it was like it happened overnight), mascara stopped working, and by “stopped working,” I mean none of them — absolutely NONE — would hold a curl. They lost all respect for my lashes and my Shu Uemura lash curler.
I’d curl my lashes and apply a layer of mascara, but less than a minute later, every little lash would be straight as a board again.
So I asked on Facebook for tips, and a wonderful mascara angel suggested this one, LOL! It’s really helped with the curling situation, and it doesn’t seem to matter which waterproof mascara I use, whether high end or drugstore. It just works.
Give it a go sometime if you ever find yourself “lash curl challenged.” 🙂
