I’ve spent years looking into my girlfriend’s makeup bags and seeing an array of discarded, abandoned mascaras. So what is it in a mascara that women want but can’t seem to find? Some lengthen, others add volume, some are smudge-proof and some are waterproof. One thing’s for sure, women will never do without mascara in the morning, no matter how little time they have!
Big, bold lashes were seen all over the catwalks of fall/winter 2013 – like on the sultry eyes of models for Roberto Cavalli (pictured above). In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash is a breakthrough mascara, containing carbon pigments that absorb light to intensify the lash application from root to tip. The uniquely molded brush separates and coats every individual lash for incomparable drama. It’s every woman’s eternal quest to find the ultimate mascara, and finally, I believe, the search is over!
Using mascara on both top and bottom lashes is an excellent way to open up smaller eyes, but should be avoided if your intention is to create a more sultry effect with your eye makeup; stay with just the upper lashes to elongate the eye line. For full, luscious lashes, use the unique Mega brush to tease the lashes from the roots by zigzagging the brush up to the tips. Applying several light coats to each eye and allowing each layer to dry will ensure the lashes stay separated. For bottom lashes, turn the brush vertically, and (carefully) sweep from side to side to avoid smudges under the eye.
