Combine a thickening mascara formula with a lengthening mascara for a true faux false lash. Intrigued? Want to know more?! Read on to find out how to get long lasting lashes, baby doll lashes, and more from layerin' up on mascara!


Colored lashes have been an in the moment, out of the moment beauty trend, but does it really matter what 'trendsetters' what you want, and if you want to get that highly pigmented colored look, go for it! There is an easy way to achieve this, even if you have super dark lashes. Use your favorite mascara, and while it's still wet, quickly apply the highly pigmented mascara color or eye shadow powder to your lashes. Cool, eh? 

Want that lovely long lasting lash look? You'll want to snag a waterproof mascara for that long lasting factor, but unfortunately, we all know long lasting doesn't always mean most voluminous. That's why we think you should also layer with a swipe or two of a volumizing lash forumla, we love Chanel's dimensional mascara in #10 noir. 

Want a wide-eyed, baby doll lash look? You'll need a mascara with a thin wand...and the other that is meant for curling, with a large, curved brush. With the thin wand, you'll want to take the time to seperate each and every lash, you'll also want to use a eye lash curler on your top lashes for the most wide eyed look you're able to achieve. 

What's your go to lash look?

As annoying as it may seem, it's (almost) compltely normal...think about it, you've been stressing over this day for some reason or another and your skin is getting stressed too, why wouldn't it?! But it doesn't have to be like that if you use a blemish therapy product we carry, by Bare Escentuals

Use this daily, and you can conceal and prevent future breakouts with this remedy and brush. It's easy to use and results are REAL! Not only does it prevent future breakouts, but it also helps minimize the appearance of pores, reduces redness and diffuses imperfections, like magic. 

It's easy to use too!  All you have to do is swirl the brush into the treatment, and like all mineral product, tap off the excess and gently pat onto the blemish. Have a large problem area and not just one or two zits to cover up? Apply a light layer of treatment over the entire affected area. 

Typically have one area or zone on your face that you are prone to breakouts? Use a light layer of this powder therapy on these areas daily to prevent new breakouts from ever forming.
