Howdy, dear Posse folks! I’m reaching out to you today for some help, as you all are always so kind and helpful. Our wedding anniversary (no. 28) is coming up in week or two, and we’ve got a very nice dinner and evening out set up. I’m planning to go all-out on the makeup front, and this means — drumroll, please — mascara!
Ah, but here’s the rub: I haven’t worn it in ages. And as I was taking a super-close look at my eyes during a recent eyeglass-fitting, I noticed that — yikes! I have very few lashes left at all to speak of. Which doesn’t seem fair at all, since DH has lovely, full dark lashes, waah.
Had I the time and money (and less squeamish eyes), I might go the false eyelash route and have them professionally done, because I sure couldn’t do it myself. But that’s not happening, at least not now. (BTW, if any of you have had false eyelashes applied to you or have done it yourselves, please do weigh in and share your experiences.)
But getting back to mascara: Do any of you have any suggestions for mascara for the severely eyelash-impaired like me? I do know that I’ll need to use a prep product beforehand, and have a sample of Christian Dior’s Triple Volume Plumping lash primer that I will be trying. And I’d rather not spend a small fortune on a tube of mascara, if I can help it. But if it works a miracle on my lashes, then I’ll gladly go into debt for it.
I’m pretty happy with my eyes (a medium golden brown with a hint of green) but am nearsighted and my glasses visually shrink my eyes. So it usually takes lots of liner and shadow to make them more noticeable. I tend to wear dark brown mascara, although black might be fine, especially for a big night out.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice!!
