MY MASCARA ROUTINE

Hi beauties!
Today, I will be sharing my mascara routine with you all. Every now and then, I'd get compliments from strangers or even people I know of how I have nice nice eye lashes. They would questioned if I wear falsies and the answer is 'no'. I'm terrible at applying false eye lashes. I have quite a few pairs sitting in my drawers and I just ordered another pair recently. I figured the more I buy, the more it would force me to practice on applying them. Is that not a fair logic? haha. 
Anyway, this is a routine that works wonders for me and it doesn't require using a hair dryer cause ain't nobody got time for that! 


All you will need are your eye lash curler, your favourite mascara and another mascara that lengthens well. The mascara that i'm using, which is also my secret weapon is the Majolica Majorca Lash Expander. It is a fiber mascara, so it helps make my lashes look fuller. Also note that this is a waterproof mascara, so it will hold the curl well throughout the day. 
As you can see, I'm blessed with some short Asian lashes. My lashes are pretty straight and they grow downwards. 

First, I curl my lashes from the base then work my way up. Holding in place for 5 secs. 
Then, I apply a very light coat of mascara. You don't want to apply a lot of mascara, because it will get clumpy and the lashes will get stuck when you curl the lashes again.
Again, curl your lashes again to really lift them up. 
Now, you can apply a generous coat of mascara to you lashes.
 
My secret weapon. You can't really see in this photo, but it has little fibers on the wand. The fibers will stick to the lashes and make them look super long. I love the unique wand which is great for separating the lashes. 
Ta-da!! You can see a difference to my lashes.. They're a lot longer than before. I think they still look quite natural and not spidery looking even after a couple coat of mascara. 
I hope that this little technique is useful for you!
What's your current HG mascara??

  1. I've got friends who say they use multiple mascaras and I've never tried it but I completely see the appeal now! I also ditched my curler a few months back as it didn't do a lot, but using it in combination with this routine may do much more! Thanks :) xx

  2. I love reading other peoples' make-up routines! My curler broke a year or so ago now and I've still not picked another one up. This has reminded me of the difference they make :)

  4. Great post. It really makes all the difference how you do your lashes. My fav brand of mascara is L'Oreal, as they do the blackest black. Right now I am using Miss Manga and it's the best I've ever had.
    Happy New Year

  8. Your lashes look great! I have straight Asian lashes too (so annoying) so waterproof mascaras are a MUST. Wish I had picked up that Majolica Majorca mascara last time I was in Asia - I love their products.

  9. Great before and after pic!! I don't tend to curl my lashes after put mascara on (even a small amount) as I'm scared of my lashes getting stuck in the eyelash curler! (which has happened before). My favourite mascara is the Maybelline The Falsies waterproof.

    1. Thank you!! That's definitely scary and I heard some people got their eye lashes cut short from the curler..yikes! It's definitely safer to invest a high-end curler. The Falsies is my fave too and I've gone through so many tubes, only now I am experimenting with other mascaras. :)

  12. Re-try. Oh, the dreaded short, super straight Asian lashes! I also like the Majolica Majorca also, after lots of curling. I have a post up on my favorite Asian mascaras. I also like Jordana, made popular by Lauren Curtis. Super cheap and works really well. If you'd like. I'll pop one in the post to you, as I don't believe you can get it in Oz yet. Let me know sis! xo

    1. Oooh, I have always wanted to try the Jordana mascara. It'd be super sweet of you if you don't mind sending it to me. Let me know if there's a product that you can't get in the States that is only available here and we will do a little exchange. Thanks sis!! x

  14. Your lashes look great! The Majolica Majorca one sounds good though, I'm always on the hunt for a mascara that will hold my asian lashes up! But I also have a monolid, so my lids weigh down on my lashes :( and you can hardly see them lol.
