mascara-eyelash-wandWith so many brands, colors, and never-ending options makeup has become an obsession for women and teens across the globe…you’ll love my top 5 best mascaras!

It’s so satisfying to buy a new mascara or lip gloss and use it until you realize it’s one month old and must be time to replace :).

Don’t get stuck on one brand or color for more than 6 months. Doing so will help you get rid of the old (possibly bacteria carrying) makeup so your skin will be clearer, your eyes won’t get irritated as easily, and you will of course discover new favorites!

Some of you will ignore me when I say to THROW AWAY the old as you buy new makeup!

Honestly, I am horrible at this and have makeup kits all over my house. The only one that I regularly purge is the kit that I use for weddings and photo shoots.

Finding makeup you forgot about is extremely exciting, but can be harmful to your health and appearance! After a while you forget how old some of it is and may be tempted to use it. Most of you will try to use it unless it’s all dried up….just don’t.
