For any and all ladies out there who have struggled with finding the perfect mascara, let me start by saying I feel your pain! My lashes are blonde and therefore nonexistent without mascara. To add insult to injury, they curl naturally making it almost impossible to get most mascara to apply without globs and clumps. I usually have to stick with the Maybelline and Covergirl mascara with the rubber brushes which comb out the clumps. If I have some extra cash I also really like Benefit “They’re Real” mascara which has a similar rubber applicator brush.

I have always been obsessed with that big butterfly voluptuous lash look. I usually fall back on falsies if I have a special occasion to attend or go out for a night on the town with my girls.

It was time for a change. So, I set out to find THE BEST foundation for humid months and girls that sweat! Continue to read what I discovered… Read more
