6 Tips For A Flawless Five-Minute Face

Mascara is a Must

NOTE: See what I did with the fonts here? That means you’re supposed to EMPHASIZE the words “WITH” and “WITHOUT” when reading aloud. It also means you should pronounce “mascara” with hissy whispers like Parseltongue.

Way back in this post, I emphasized that mascara by itself does more for your eyes than any other eye product worn alone. A few of you thought that mascara without liner looks weird, but I still hold to my opinion. For illustrative purposes I have provided some photos so awkwardly close up you can see the rim of my contact lenses! See the difference? Mascara applied properly from root to tip darkens the base of your lashes so it almost looks like you have liner on. One step, and you look instantly more awake.
