Back to The Basics: Mascara

A mascara is a thick cream product applied with a brush designed to add volume, length and definition to the lashes.

Mascara’s come in a range of colours from natural shades like black and brown to blue, pink, grey, green and yellow but black is the most common shade.

The purpose of a mascara is to add the appearance of length and volume to the lashes and darken the appearance of them to help the eyes appear more defined. Mascara will not give you the same effect as false lashes but when used with a lash primer it can give very big results.

Bobbi Brown Mosman Store

Bobbi Brown is a brand (and person) I have always loved and respected. I remember reading every single Bobbi Brown book from front to cover and watching every single Bobbi Brown video I could find, from youtube to infomercials on the Home Shopping Network and QVC which I found online during the the early days of beauty blogging.

Bobbi Brown Australia Mosman Store

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Bobbi Brown Australia’s first free-standing store and it was every bit Bobbi that you’d expect. Very monochrome and very SoHo inspired. Alongside Bobbi Brown was also free standing Jo Malone and MAC stores AKA beauty addict heaven.

nothingspecialjustathuggbugg said: I have brown eyes and they are kinda smallish. How can I use makeup to make my eyes appear larger? .

Just about everyone wants beautiful big doe-eyed eyes so you’re not alone in wanting to make your eyes look larger. It’s time to ditch the black eye makeup and go a little lighter…

Light Eyeshadow

Dark smoky eyes are great, but if you want to make your eyes look larger it’s best to ditch them and go for lighter shades instead. Try pale creams, light beige’s and shimmery champagnes for the best results.

OVER HYPED: Dior DiorShow Mascara
I had really high hopes for the Dior DiorShow Mascara, I’d received a ton of requests for a review and my thoughts on the product, but sadly as much as I wanted to love it, I was disappointed with this product. For starters the brush was far too large (meaning you end up with mascara all over your eyelids) and the formula was super clumpy, dry and hard to work with. I rarely ever have problems with mascara flaking, but by the end of the day I had black dots of mascara all down my face, not a good look not to mention it didn’t give much length or volume and had a hard time “gripping” to my lashes. All in all this mascara needed a lot of work and even with a lot of work it produced less than desirable results. I really wanted to love this mascara, but it just didn’t work for me.

Use White Eyeliner as a Eyeshadow Base!
Eyeshadow can be a great way to experiment and amp up your look but creased eyeshadow? Not so much. Eyeliners can make great eyeshadow primers due to their waxy texture. They help eyeshadow last longer and make colours look vivid.
Step 1. Warm the pencil on the back of your hand and apply directly to your eyelids
Step 2. Use your fingertips to smooth the eyeliner over your lids
Step 3. Apply your eye makeup as usual
Step 4. Done!
