My love-hate relationship with mascara

Hi Guys,

Today we are having a chat. About mascara, which is singlehandedly the most amazing and frustrating product I have EVER and will EVER use. In its defence, it makes my non-existent blonde eyelashes come to life. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes on the worst of days and doesn’t discriminate with a left hand application like nail polish. Without it I would look, well.. its better if I just show you..

It’s weird right. So you can appreciate why I find mascara such an essential product in my everyday life. It allows me to go from creepy alien girl so a somewhat normal looking human being.

But see my frustration stems from my love-hate relationship with the product. Let me explain, I have been using mascara since I was a twelvie and yet I am still unable to master the art of mascaration (applying mascara successfully, it’s a new word I made, go with it!). My issue is, is that despite having used mascara for over ten years now, I have not and believe I cannot prevent this..

Perfectly done eyes with mascara that’s gone and ruined it!!

Ahh this is a first world problem I know, but it had to be said.

Don’t even get me started on eyeliner..


Until next time..





  1. Oh how I feel your pain. I have this issue too as my lashes are horrendous, I’ve literally done everything to them bar an eye lash transplant. (It actually gets me down sometimes as I think long lashes = pretty) x

  2. If you let it dry you can wipe it right off with a cotton bud without disturbing your makeup :) and I totally feel your frustration! I always get mascara on my eyelids because I get right to the roots, so I do it before my eye makeup.

  3. I couldn’t agree more! I don’t need it as I have thick, long, dark lashes but I feel like I should master it anyway. Doesn’t help that I have a tremor in my hand either.
