OK, I lied. Sorry about that.
I have a love-hate relationship with false eyelashes. I’ve been wearing false lashes off and on for years, even though I really only wear false eyelashes (we’ll call them “falsies” in this blog post) for dance and other occasions. I love the way they look – they really make my eyes stand out. Unfortunately, they can be a pain in the ass to put on and also, time consuming. There are women who can put on false eyelashes without much effort. I will forever be jealous of their ability to do this.
A work colleague of mine, Stefanee Nimetz, started selling the Younique brand mascara. It’s a gel and fiber formula and it’s DA BOMB! $30 for mascara is pricey, but sometimes, you just have to spend the money. And this stuff is worth every penny. Seriously.
Here are how my eyes look with varying degrees of eyelashes: natural/none, regular mascara (Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes®), gel and fiber formula (Younique), and false eyelashes. In all of these photos, I’m wearing at least my basic makeup: foundation and blush. I also curled my eyelashes before applying mascara.

– REGULAR MASCARA (MAYBELLINE) –
– EVERYDAY MASCARA (YOUNIQUE) –
– FALSE EYELASHES –
Here’s a comparison of my eyes, from top to bottom: no mascara, wearing Maybelline mascara, wearing Younique mascara, and wearing falsies:
A big thank you to Stefanee and Younique for giving me eyelashes! I’m still getting the hang of wearing 3D gel mascara. My eyelashes are so short and close to non-existent. WAAAAH! The Younique brand is similar to Avon and Mary Kay Cosmetics – you can’t get these in stores; you will need to contact a representative to order. You can inquire and order Younique from Love My Own Lashes. There’s also a tutorial by Sasha McCracken, below my signature.
