What Makeup Is Best to Use?
For these makeup tutorials, you can use any makeup with colors similar to what is used in the videos. This is my favorite makeup brand for all ages because they make their products as natural as possible while making them the best quality possible. I highly recommend using this makeup for these looks.
Do You Need to Use Fake Lashes?
No. There is a much easier and more natural option! You can make your own lashes look as natural as you’d like or exactly like fake lashes with this mascara!
Before this mascara was invented I used to have to glue on fake lashes when I performed in professional ice shows. It felt uncomfortable like I was doing surgery to my eyes. Putting sharp metal tweezers directly next to my eye balls. Then placing the lashes with glue that could possibly glue my entire eye shut while I was on the ice didn’t feel like the safest thing to do. The dangers we put ourselves through for beauty sometimes verges on the side of ludicrous.
Thank goodness I don’t have to risk all that for my lashes anymore because even the best, top of the line mascaras can’t compare.
