The Makeup Tool Everyone Needs!

Things just got a bit upclose and personal with the second picture, didn't it?
So, eyelash curlers, probably the most boring thing to blog about, but really, they needs waay more attention than they get!
To start off - I used to use a pair of Etude House Eyelash curlers that were nothing great. I somehow wrote it off as something that I didn't need to spend much money on.
However, since they weren't doing the greatest job, I bit the bullet and got the Shu Uemera Eyelash Curlers, and holy shit my eyelashes have never been the same.
There is just something about the shape of these curlers that get right to your roots and help your lashes curl.. while keeping them that way. Worth the hype? HELL YES.

While we're talking lashes, another discovery which would probably get several eyes rolling is Waterproof Mascara. Now, I'm not much of a mascara girl - and its taken me a fair few months to get into the habit of wearing mascara regularly - but waterproof mascara? Consider me lazy. Its a pain to take off - and hence I just don't use it. But unfortunate truth? It helps the curl stay all day long. If you want proof - the second picture shows you my curled and waterproof mascara'd lashes after 6 hours.
So it works? Yes.

This is my newest revelation - though its nothing particularly new to the beauty world.
What's yours?


  1. I'm guilty of using a lash curler and nothing else. I heat mine up a little bit (I keep mine inside my tshirt while applying shadow/blush/etc!) and it goes quite some way to keeping the curl. I don't use mascara on a regular basis - I find it elongates my lashes and then they interfere with my vision :P

    I need to get the Shu Uemura one. I've heard good things about the Chanel one, too! My Tarte one does the job for now, so I'll wait till it gives out :)

    1. Lucky you got having lashes long enough to interfere with your vision :o
      But I do that too, on days when i'm not wearing any makeup, it just gives things a little lift.
