Amazing Mascara Alert!! (Inexpensive)

AlexRonallo
I have short, EXTREMELY straight eyelashes. I have never been able to find a product that curls and lengthens them without falling flat in a few hours. However, that has changed! I’ve started using a combination of Etude House Dr. Mascara Fixer ($6.50 on Amazon) and Heroine Make Long and Curl waterproof mascara ($9.49 on Amazon). I have spent so much money on so many mascaras, but this $16 combo is doing the trick. Simply curl lashes, apply fixer and apply mascara. Make sure to remove with a good, oil-based cleanser or waterproof mascara remover.KISSME - Kiss Me Waterproof Lengthening and Curling Mascara

Full face of Korean makeup! ✨ #CheriePartner
Well, almost. Only thing I’m missing is a brow product so I used my trusted e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel but for the rest of my face I used only k-beauty! Let me break down the look for you 💗 Let’s start with complexion products, today I used the touch in SOL - Pretty Filter Icy Sherbet Primer Touch in Sol makes one of my favorite primers, I bought their No Poreblem Primer on my first trip to Japan, the store had a small selection of K-beauty and the pretty bottle caught my eye not gonna lie! Then I learned is actually one of their best sellers! This gel primer claims to lock makeup in place, provide a cooling effect upon application and hydrate and prep skin before makeup. I have dehydrated skin and very mild rosacea, mostly on my cheeks so I’m always looking for something to combat the redness. This is such an innovative product in my opinion, the cooling sensation is incredible and really soothes my skin. An ingredient that also made it super interesting to me is the Sakura extract, I didn’t know but sakura is rich in essential fatty acids and helps protect the natural skin barrier. As my base I used the MISSHA - Glow Tension SPF50+ PA+++ cushion foundations are so cool. I love that you can use replace the foundation cushion when you’re out, but use the same compact over and over again. Cushion foundations are often lighter in coverage which is much more my style than higher coverage foundation, which I think are more common in western makeup styles. This cushion is formulated with collagen and hyaluronic acid to plump up skin and keep it looking radiant. It’s not cakey on me and lasts well throughout the day. My only gripe is the shade range, I use shade #22 Beige and it’s still a little ashy on me, also I think it’s a little too light for me, we’ll have to wait and see if it works better for winter! For blush I used the peripera - Velvet Cheek Blush these blushes are sooo cute! They look truly velvety on the skin and feel so soft on the pan, they’re super smooth. I used the shade 08 Appealing dry coral on both cheeks and lips. Next for eyes I used the ETUDE - Etude House Eyelash Curler and ETUDE - Dr.Mascara Fixer For Perfect Lash I tried the eyelash curler at the Etude House store in Harajuku and really liked it but when I went back to buy it they were sold out 😭 I ordered one off Yesstyle but it’s not as good as the one I tried there, it’s just ok. The star here is their Dr. Mascara Fixer tho! This is SO. GOOD. I have long but straight, stubborn lashes that don’t like to stay curled and this literally fixes them in place and my curl lasts all day. It also has fibers to lengthen and you can use it on its own or under mascara AND over mascara to make it waterproof. Also it’s like $5 💸 Lastly for shadow I used peripera - Ink Pocket Shadow Palette one of my favorite pink palettes!

Mascara primer that WORKS 👏🏼
I have long, super straight lashes that just don’t like to stay curled but I found the one, the only primer that keeps my lashes curled and in place all day! The ETUDE - Dr.Mascara Fixer For Perfect Lash is such an amazing product. You can use it both to prime your lashes before mascara and/or after to make your mascara waterproof, it’s sooo good! It has tiny fibers that adhere to your natural lashes for extra length and it works great on brows too, gives you that soap brow look but a lot more convenient! You can get it on Yesstyle for like $6 which I think it’s a great price. Definitely recommend this primer 🙏🏼 it just works!

MAKEUP TIPS FOR LARGE PORES
So, since I have oily skin, my pores tend to be a little larger and more obvious. However, there are a couple tips and tricks to making them look smaller when I put makeup on - here’s how I do it. ➡️ Use a clay mask on the night of your event This is also an important one. It ensures that you don’t have any excess sebum in your pores, making them look larger than they really are. I would highly recommend doing this, especially if you’re doing makeup for a special event and need your pores to look smaller! ➡️ Ensure skin is super hydrated So if your skin is very well-hydrated, it’s going to be much plumper and full of water - this makes pores look smaller as the skin kind of presses together more, reducing the look of pores. If your skin is feeling dry or dehydrated, your pores will look more visible - so ensure your skin is super hydrated. ➡️ Use a pore-filling primer I like to use Maybelline Baby Skin, but there are many filling primers out there! The tip with this type of primer is to tap it into the skin, instead of spreading. It will (temporarily) fill the pores to create a smooth surface that the makeup will go over, creating the illusion of zero pores. Don’t worry, this doesn’t block pores - like the rest of your makeup, if you’re using a proper makeup removal method then you have nothing to worry about. ➡️ Always use a setting powder Setting powder, well, sets your makeup in place AND it helps to minimise the look of pores by creating a matte finish over them. They don’t get a chance to reflect light and show their true texture - making your skin look poreless!

KBEAUTY/JBEAUTY MAKEUP FAVES
I don’t just love Japanese and Korean skincare - if you haven’t tried Asian makeup yet, you’re missing out. Here are my two favourite Asian makeup products that totally blow their western counterparts out of the water - the best liquid eyeliner I’ve ever used, and the best mascara. ➡️Clio Kill Black Brush Liner FEATURES: Brush Tip, Water Proof, Transfer Proof Clio is a Korean brand I only found out about relatively recently. Because I have oily skin and oily eyelids, I’ve always struggled to find a liquid eyeliner that doesn’t eventually transfer at the end of the day. This liquid eyeliner is literally the answer to my prayers - once you put it on, it stays PUT. It’s also really easy to use to get a flawless, sharp wing because of the brush tip! CLIO - Waterproof Pen Liner Kill ➡️Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara FEATURES: Water Proof, Transfer Proof Kiss Me is a Japanese brand that does the best mascaras I’ve ever tried. I need waterproof mascara to help my lashes hold a curl, but I also struggle with mascara transferring and giving me panda eyes. This stuff is waterproof and makes my lashes look so long and wispy without looking like spider legs. However, it’s tough to remove and requires a cleansing oil to dissolve it down - but that’s not a problem for me! KISSME - Kiss Me Waterproof Lengthening and Curling Mascara These are both on the slightly more expensive side of drugstore. I think that because both Kbeauty and Jbeauty focus so much more on eye makeup, Kbeauty and Jbeauty brands tend to have way better quality products compared to Western drugstores. I think I read somewhere that Asians are much more oily to have oily skin than westerners, so products that can last despite that are crucial! Also, us Asians tend to have stubborn, straight lashes that won’t curl - so that’s why waterproof mascaras that hold lashes in a curled position are popular (and common!) Have you tried either of these?

BEST MASCARA EVER. Falsies in a tube?? 👀
BEST MASCARA EVER. Falsies in a tube?? 👀
Want big, bold, voluminous lashes?? Well I have found it! I have always said that if I’m stranded on a desert island, I will only need a solid tube of mascara. A good mascara is a life changer. I had been getting lash extensions since the beginning of the year, but since the pandemic hit, I wanted to find a mascara that was comparable to the lash extension effects. Not an easy task! After YEARS of searching and testing and trying, I have finally found the BEST mascara. I have tried them all: better than sex, diorshow, Chanel l’volume (a close second best), L’Oréal voluminous, the falsies, tarte, essence, benefit...ALL OF THEM. LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Mascara is an incredible mascara. No wonder its always at the top of all the best of lists. It delivers on bold, voluminous lashes in only one or two coats. In fact, I’ve never had a mascara that performs so well even on the first coat. It’s not a wet formulation, and not very dry either which ensures it won’t be flaky or clumpy. It separates and allows for definition as well. It does have a “fluffy” average sized wand which allows for you to get close enough to separate and build. It lasts all day, and does not flake or smudge once it’s dry. I do find that if I put a setting spray I have to be VERY careful not to look up or down as it can transfer onto the skin. It does really last forever, and even when pulling off mascara with my fingers, it is really adhered to the lash. At the end of the night, it does take a bit to get off, as I do use an oil and then go over it with an eye makeup remover, but it does come off eventually. Overall, I am SO happy to have found this mascara and I’m already on my 3rd tube. Whoever loves big bold lush lashes...check this out.

Who doesn’t love full, long fluffy eyelashes? To me, mascara is one of the most important steps in my makeup routine; it ties the look together in a perfect bow, completing the whole package. The number one thing I look for in a mascara is the volumizing factor, since my eyelashes are quite fair and not very thick. I can get away with mascaras that offer less in lengthening since my eyelashes are long, just not very defined. I still like to add on some additional length though cuz why not?! :) The Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara is amazing for adding fluffy volume; it defines the lashes beautifully and gives them a “falsies” look. My sample size is going strong but I will definitely have to purchase a full size soon. When it comes to the L’Oreal Telescopic, it doesn’t give as much volume, but it is powerful in giving some length. I find that it works better after the first couple uses. Put these two mascaras together and you have the perfect combo! Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Mascara

I started using LiLash lash serum and my lashes grew long, but they were sparse and looked whispy. I invested in Chanticille false lash mascara with growth serum in it and the combo of both products gives me full thick long lashes.... no more falsies for me.

The BEST mascara for less than $10!
Y’all. I have tried MANY MANY brands of mascara and thanks to my favorite beauty guru I have found the perfect match. If you haven’t heard of Essence Lash Princess Mascara, you HAVE to try it! I purchased mine at Ulta and with this mascara, I don’t even need false lashes. It does not transfer and dried quickly for a beautiful finish over my subtle golden eye. I would recommend this above better than sex from too faced and it has an amazing price tag. Cha Ching! essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

Too Faced’ Better Than Sex mascara and the L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise not only look very similar but perform pretty identical as well! A minor difference includes the BTS mascara having a heavier tube than the VLP. When it comes to performance; BOTH: Create multidimensional volume Available in a waterproof formula Flake slightly at the end of the day Better Than Sex Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara : Curls the lash Contains peptides that nourish the lash Clumps Harder bristle Voluminous Lash Paradise L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara : Lengthens lashes No clumping Softer bristle These two mascaras are both great for different reasons it just depends on what you are ultimately looking for in a mascara. I prefer the Voluminous mascara for it providing added length to my lashes. Have you tried both? Which do you prefer? (These are my experiences with using both mascaras)
