#12. What's your favorite mascara?
This is a tough one, simply because I really don’t have one. Mascara has a short a shelf life, and I’m a fickle being, so I can’t tell you the last time I bought a repeat.
My one standard, though, is black. Eye lashes are such a minuscule part of your over-all look that almost everyone can benefit from the extra definition a black mascara brings. The only exception to this, in my opinion, are people who have extremely fair lashes, where applying a black mascara leaves an obvious gap at the root of the lash where the base is blonde, for instance, and the length is black. In this case, a softer brown is preferable, but otherwise, black is the way to go!
Some of my recent favorite mascaras include (in no particular order)
- Maybelline Lash Stilleto Ultimate Length Mascara
- Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Noir Radical
- Chanel Inimitable
- Flirt! Far Out Lengthening Mascara
All of these mascaras give great definition without clumping, flaking or smearing- what more can you ask for?
