Do you layer mascaras? Favorite pairing?

I used to do this sometimes, but these days, not so much. I will sometimes use a softer, more flexible mascara when taking photos and then use something blacker and more dramatic after photos as that’s when I’ll put on eyeshadow and take photos of the eye look. There’s no favored combo though!

Lower lashes – MAC Extended Play Gigabyte black
Upper lashes – Dior Iconic Overcurl with MAC extended play as second layer.

Been pretty loyal to MEPGB for a long time because it suits my lash type so well. I replaced Marc Jacobs velvet noir with the Dior. I love the Dior because it gives me the lift I need and also some very nice volume. I like MEPGB on top for keeping separation in lashes and also bumping up the blackness.. itโ€™s good for that too.

I’ve done it in the past but usually because I had bad mascara on in the first place. I have to add it never ended well either as I always ended up with clumpy eyelashes and deeply regretting it.

No I wear a lengthening vitamin enriched mascara most of the time. Lancomes Definicils is great. To be honest if I’m just running errands I skip mascara because my weak eye lashes will fall out if I wear mascara too frequently. When I go out I wear a volumising mascara my favorite is Chanel’s Le Volume. I love falsies and have so many pretty ones but l wear them on special occasions.

Sometimes I’ll use one of my Tom Ford Extreme mascaras on the tips of my lashes with a more subtle shade-burgundy with the pink (TFX22) or brown with the copper (TFX24)-if I’m looking for a little something extra with a reddish/pinkish/brownish look.

I usually pair Mac False Lashes Maximizer with Nabla Vicious mascara (amazing! Review, Christine, please). Then Mac Extended play Gigablack on the lower lashes
