Eyelash Primer Potion

A few weeks ago a wonderful girl at Ulta opened my eyes (or eyelashes) to the fact that popular mascara such as Covergirl or Maybeline can actually weaken your lashes. Next time you buy a new tube, look for ingredients such as wax, proteins, vitamins A, E, keratin, etc. These are ingredients that will nourish your lashes and prevent breakage (just like your hair).  For extra long lashes, apply Urban Decay’s Eyelash Primer Potion (click here to view the product).  Tiny fibers cling together to create fuller, longer lashes. I just started using it so I will let you know how it goes :) 

And as always remember to wash your makeup off before you go to sleep!

You gotta prime!

A few people have asked how to prevent your eye makeup from getting creases and from fading in general, and luckily there is a solution! Urban Decay Primer Potion. The wand is actually bent (this photo is old, they’ve since updated the design) so that it’s easy to get on your eye lid, and just a few swipes is all it takes. It goes on a bit shimmery, but dries clear, so you can put your eye makeup on without any interference from the primer. It’s definitely a must have if you’re a fan of wearing eyeshadow!
