My eyelashes - and former dark hair
I know I was born lucky - to have these major eyelashes of my own. But what I tell you ladies is you can't have everything!! I might have great eyelashes but there are ladies with perky tushes, clear skin, full long hair, you know where I am getting at with this. One woman wants my eyelashes and yet I want to be able to fit into a single digit pant size. I want to be able to leave the house without makeup without fear of acne scars and under eye bags. But we can't have it all.
Today, for the 100th time I got asked if I use latisse on my eyelashes. I constantly get asked if I have eyelash extensions on. One woman went so far to grab my eyelash and give it a tug just because she had to know for herself. These Venus fly trap-esque lashes generate a lot of attention. I get asked a lot of questions about them, and even get some accusations. For the record, they are real, 100%.
So today, I am going to share with you my secret weapon. An $8 mascara only available at Ulta (as far as I know), Stila Major Lash in Black. I have used diorshow, lancome, Clinique, buxom, M.A.C., Chanel, L'Oreal, Makeup Forever, and the list goes on. While I can make pretty much any mascara work, the only one that I can truly say I love is this stila major lash. It's tiny brush allows for a more precise application. It is non flaky, doesn't leave a trail of sandpaper in your eye, beautifully darkens, extends, volumizes, and is not clumpy. It layers so well and is perfect in every way -- Oh, and only $8. You can't beat it.
I am also loving these limited edition Stila Valentine's Day compacts - so gorgeous.
