Is your mascara hurting or helping?


At least once a year I’m invited to attend a wedding and generally it is one my best friends who is getting married, which will usually mean lots of happy tears.  Personally, I don’t like to have black streams of mascara running down the sides of my cheeks or just a hint of mascara buildup on the corners of my eyes.  Whenever I’m getting ready for a “happy tear event”, I like to apply water proof mascara over my regular mascara.  

As a beauty tip, I’d highly recommend first applying a mascara primer, then a regular mascara (lash lengthening or ultimate  mascara) and finish with a water proof mascara.   I prefer the primer and mascaras offered by Mary Kay (I know I’m slightly biased ‘cause I’m a beauty consultant, but I’ve tried the rest and now prefer the best!).  

My free sample for the month of September 2012 is the Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara.  Supplies are limited, so please click on the link and register to receive a sample and enter PinkBasketBlog, so I know where we met.  Click Here.

Have a wonderful day.
