Wimpy Lashes Rejoice!

If you:

  1. have wimpy lashes (check!), or
  2. have a mascara that tends to clump (check!), or
  3. smear mascara on your lids when you’re putting it on (check!),

then you must watch this video.  This is how I put on my mascara now, especially volumizing formulas.  My lashes have never looked better!

The tutorial itself is pretty funny, but if you wanna get down to the bottom of it, skip ahead to 0:46, then again to 1:48. :D

To quote dear Michelle Phan:

This card trick not only shields your eyelids from the mascara, but it also helps to grab on to every single lash.

Now go and bat your pretty lashes. :P And for good measure, here is a scary eye shot of me wearing L’Oreal Voluminous using this technique.

Does anyone else do this business card trick? I personally think it is genius!

    OMG! That’s PURE GENIUS!

    I never wear mascara because it was so frustrating and clumpy! Thank you for sharing!

      You should try it now, Asian Pear. I don’t always wear mascara either, but this trick has totally changed EVERYTHING. *bats pretty lashes*

        It WORKS!! I had a tube of mascara that I never opened or used because I was so frustrated with applying and clumping. This did the trick and am SO keeping it now. :D

    Oh my god, she’s soooo funny!! I’m totally going to try it today. I love how the creepy guys give you business cards (that surprisingly happens all the time around here…I mean, I am SO not going to call you, weird o. What a waste of a tree!)

      Really? That’s totally creepy. I have to say I’ve never experienced this (and don’t really ever want to), but there have been some guys who have tried to pick up… and they were all losers. As soon as they start talking, I slowly just… back… away. :P

      Let me know if you have any success with this. :)

    I wonder if it removes your eye shadow when you pull your upper lashes. I am going to try it one of these days.

      Hi Marisol,
      It doesn’t remove my eyeshadow. You don’t really lay it flat on your lid… more like it’s on an edge and pulling your lid back. That sounds totally scary LOL.
