Mascara Mamma

Well, one more day until my poll is officially closed. Thanks for everyone that shared. I have actually really taken the results to heart...and have tried wearing mascara practically every day. Even in my pony tail and scrubs I have noticed a big difference! My one trick is that I must curl my lashes everyday or I might as well not bother with the mascara...they are so darn straight.

A few questions/concerns/problems however; one, it seems like my eyelashes always fall out. Does anyone else feel this way. I know this is not normal because my identical twin has beautiful thick and long lashes that I used to have myself. I am not reaching my genetic potential here.

Secondly, no matter what I do I cannot seem to get the mascara off my face. The non-waterproof has been a big help but I feel like I've tried everything...the washcloth, no washcloth, soap, make-up remover (the best bet). But I'll still be washing it off three days later and not getting huge raccoon eyes every time I shower is impossible. Sometimes I get so frustrated I just leave it. One lady said every night you don't wash your face it gets a day older. Don't know if I believe that (she was trying to sell makeup products and how do you really know that, anyway?) but do you think that is bad?

Let me know your tips ladies.

I really don't do anything special. I use face soap with make-up remover already in it. I think that stuff that works the best for me was the Neutrogena in an orange tube. And I don't really scrub. If it doesn't all come off, oh well. To get it off your undereyes, just make you you get soap on the bottom.

During my mascara wearing days, I used vasoline. I gooped it on liberally and rubbed gently. I left it on and washed it off in the shower. It worked well and that was on waterproof mascara. I had roommates tell me I was crazy or weird but I also attribute that to my long-lived youthful appearance which is only now starting to fade.

If you're trying to get mascara off of your lashes, especially waterproof, I recommend Pond's Cold Cream or Clinique eye makeup remover. Rub a little onto your eyes and then wipe off with a wet washcloth. If you're trying to get it out from under your eyes, I recommend Neutrogena Make-up Remover towelettes. They are gentle and do a great job. Those three products have always been my tried-and-true. Also, I have found that if I don't wash my mascara off at night, my lashes break off due to the rubbing on my pillow. Plus, I've never liked the idea of rolling around on a dirty face/pillow at night, either. :-) Hope those tips help!
