What happened to her eyelashes?!? Here’s how to make sure this doesn’t happen to you!
Kourtney Kardashian was spotted at her book signing in Santa Monica, looking rather pretty (nice updo, glowing skin, lovely lip color) except one thing: her crazy long, clumpy mascara! Her eyelashes look crazy! Want to make sure this makeup disaster never happens to you? Read on!
Here’s what I think went wrong:
False lashes – Using false lashes is a great way to add volume to your look and single lashes, when applied properly, can really look beautiful. Be sure to use them somewhat sparingly and make sure that the length of the lashes don’t extend so far from your own lashes that they look abnormal. If your lashes are short, use a strip so they’re all one length.
Old mascara – First of all, you should be replacing your mascara every three months at a minimum. Smell the wand. If it smells like gasoline, it’s got all sorts of bacteria in there (ew!) which means it’s time to get rid of it. Also, clumps aren’t normal and it means the formula is starting to dry and break down. Throw it away and get a new mascara.
Get rid of clumps – You can purchase extra mascara wands for almost nothing at a beauty supply store. Use a clean one to lift and separate your mascara.
Spidery bottom lashes – Your bottom lashes should NOT be as thick and long as your top lashes, nor should they have that much mascara. It looks crazy! As I said in the Monday Makeup Minute, the new Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara has a smaller wand that will allow you to control the amount and placement of mascara on your bottom lashes.
Poor Kourtney! What do you think? Do her lashes look kind of wrong to you, too? Vote now!
