Mascara is the one beauty product that a lot of us seem to have strong opinions on.
That and a brand that works for one person, doesn’t always do the trick for another.
However, I’ve been recently putting to the test a hack that I truthfully cannot recommend enough.
Best of all – you can use it with all brands. Right now, for example, my mascaras of choice are budget-options from Essence and Rimmel.
The trick? Layering two different types of product for your all-time ultimate lashes.
A quick search online – and it seems that this technique it called ‘mascara cocktailing’.
MUAs usually recommend that you use a thickening mascara on clean lashes to begin, followed by a specialist lengthening product to conclude.
However, I never specifically sought out different types of mascara – I just selected two brands from whatever happened to be in my make-up bag… and I’ve been delighted with the results.
That’s not to say that mascara cocktailing can’t be a fine art: beauty editors and bloggers often come up with their own concoctions and formulas involving a mix of different brands, strains, and colours for wowzers lashes.
I love the concept of coming up with your own unique recipe for bigger, brighter eyes. Definitely, this is one hack I’ll be exploring further.
