The new CoverGirl Super Sizer by LashBlast Waterproof Mascara, $7, gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. The amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes — just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look. Opthalmologically tested, it is even suitable for those who wear contact lenses and removes easily with oil-based makeup remover. I really love this mascara and was excited to try it out. I’m always on the hunt for a mascara that lives up to its claims and this one certainly does. It really does grab the teeniest lash hair coating it with the rich formula. I was glad it left no clumps behind and just made my lashes look natural and pretty!
Get the control of a pencil with the intensity of a liquid eyeliner for beautifully defined eyes every single time with Intensify Me, $8. The new paddle-shaped tip gives you two looks in one—thick and dramatic or thin and elegant. Just flip the tip and you have a liner that gives two looks in one. For daytime, I did a thin line but will definitely amp it up for a night out on the town. The intense black formula glides on smoothly and dries quickly for instant drama. It is clinically tested and suitable for sensitive eyes.
How To Apply:
Stand 6 inches away from a mirror and tilt your chin up, so that when you look down your nose into the mirror, you can see your entire eyelid. Dab concealer or dust translucent powder on your upper lids. Blend well with a sponge or lightly pat with a fingertip to cover veins and prevent creasing.
Before applying liner, determine your eye shape. If eyes are close-set or round, line only the outer corners. Otherwise, line the entire upper lid.
Gently pull your eyelid taut at an upward angle. Beginning at the inner corner, draw small, connected dashes along the top lashes. Be sure to stay close to the roots so there is no skin visible between the lashes and the liner. To make eyes look bigger, extend the liner slightly beyond the outer corners.
Use a cotton swab to fix mistakes. For larger messes, dip it in makeup remover.
