As a celebrity makeup artist I know all the tricks of the trade. I was thumbing through a magazine the other day and I started to feel sick looking at a mascara ad. I’m here to tell you, I’ve tried TONS of mascara products and none of them have made me wanna bust a nut! They’re many things we do on a photo shoot to achieve that “Bambi” like look. Just mascara won’t do! Try false lashes. Individuals or strips? Strips give you that instant runway glamour. Individuals are more subtle but, still give that extra something. If you’re completely handicapped when it comes to putting them on yourself. A few boring nights of practice in your bathroom mirror and you’ll soon become a pro. Now next time you are looking at a beauty spread ask yourself is that really just mascara?
