The best mascara for small lashes

best mascara for short lashes

You don’t see mascara reviews often on my blog. That’s mainly, because my lashes are quite shy and very natural-looking. You know,  invisible. They are short and small – every woman’s dream. So, when I stumble onto something, that actually makes a difference in my lashes and is  great (and innovative!), I have to share it with you.

What speaks to me in mascaras is nice packaging, but also the wand. And this mascara wand is something, I haven’t seen before. IsaDora’s Insane Volume Lash Styler mascara is definitely in my top 3 best mascaras and it’s great for humble lashes such as mine.

The mascara was received as a pr-sample.

My lashes are in there somewhere..

When I first opened this mascara, I was intrigued. The mascara wand is really unique! It’s 1/3 of a classic rubber wand, but then there’s this part, where it’s kinda like a comb. See?

And let me tell you – that wand is an expert of giving volume to your lashes. The comb makes it easy to add volume and mass to the roots, while keeping the tips thin! And the normal side of the wand is really nice too – I prefer rubber bands like this, but it’s obviously just personal preference. I feel like it separates my lashes nicely and gives them volume, but doesn’t make them clumpy. It also stays well on my lashes, and doesn’t crumble on my under eye area.

Here is the mascara on my lashes. I’ve already used one tube entirely and I have a back up ready to go – that’s how convinced I’m about this one (though I have lash extensions at the moment, another great thing for small lashes).

I spy with my little eye.. my lashes! They might be short, but they are determined to show.

You can find this mascara on feelunique here (adlink), and it costs 23,40€.

What is your favorite mascara and why? What kind of a finish does it offer?

And what do you guys think of this kind of mascara review, where the model’s lashes aren’t the best kind? Does the mascara seem any good in this light? Or maybe there are other small-lashed beauties out there?

Acne anti-coverage makeup

Here is the next makeup thing, that I’m gonna rock as a trend: Confidence.

I already talked a little about this on my recent post, but today, while I was having a fantastic day, I got an inspiration to come here and share my makeup photos and thoughts. Because today – I didn’t even want to cover my acne.

There are tons of different makeup tips and even some things, that we consider as rules. Every once in a while I like to kick those rules out of my makeup bag and just do as I please. Like yesterday and today, when I wore my acne anti-coverage base.

Makeup and skin problems can be a tricky combo. It’s certainly something, that has made me feel sad at times. Why doesn’t my favorite foundation look beautiful on my skin? Why does the highlighter want to make my skin look worse than it is? Not to talk about the fact, that acne can be painful and makeup can irritate it – or the process of removing it. And to be honest – I just haven’t felt like applying makeup on my acne. And realizing I don’t have to is pretty damn powering.

So here is my acne anti-coverage makeup from today. I wore this, when I went to city to my monthly sugaring appointment and a lunch date with my friend. I feel like the time stopped for a while, when we sat in a restaurant and drank our awful teas and laughed at stupid things.  I took a bus home and smiled the entire trip back. Why should I worry? I may have a few red pimples on my cheeks, but I have just as many good friends.

Would you rock the acne anti-coverage makeup? And what looks better in your opinion: a flawless makeup or self-confidence?
I choose the second one every day and I’m willing to pair it with whatever makeup I’m wearing.

About the makeup:
I wore my go-to foundation with cream contour and a nude blush (which is the only product I can’t remember right now). I used Isadora’s eyeshadows, which I wrote about here and on my lips I wore my new mac lipstick, with a gloss. Those lashes are my absolute favorite. If you’re someone just starting with fake lashes – you should definitely try Eylure’s lashes – the lash band is really thin, which makes them easier to apply.
