When it comes to a mascara, it’s as important as oxygen. I am currently using lancome fleXtencils, it is highly highly recommended, makes your lashed long, dark and absolutely not excessive.
And here is something I found in the latest cosmopolitan(I found a place that sells ‘em cheap), I’d scan it but my scanner is problematic, so I’ll just copy, it’s short.
USE AN EYE SHADDOW QUAD CORRECTLY
1.use the deepest hue to define your lash lines.
2.highlight brow bones with the lightest shades.
3.sweep the second palest color all over the lid
4.define the crease with the medium tone.
I personally found it very useful since I own one and keep using one shade at a time
Lise, hope this fits into the spirit you have intended. If not, feel free to delete or remark(insecure me).
