During the winter months, my beauty routine doesn’t involve much- just a sheer and dewy foundation, some bronzer to contour my cheekbones and layers of my favourite mascara. Mascara is one product that I seem to pack on during the winter months. Maybe it’s to compensate for the lack of everything else, but I love how big-eyed and awake it makes me look! Oh, and I’m not one to have a light hand when it comes to primping my lashes- I them like long, full and separated.
I’ve gone through numerous mascaras throughout my life, both drugstore brands and high-end ones, but the one that has always been at the top of my list is Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara. What I love about this mascara is its amazing brush. Use the brush’s rubber bristles horizontally to really get into the root of your lashes and then hold it vertically, because of course there’s a dome-tip at the end of the brush, to grab those hard-to-reach lashes. The formula is also brilliant and I say this because I only needed 2 coats. And for someone who uses heaps of mascara, when I noticed two coats were all I needed for a perfect set of lashes, I was in love.
Though it’s a little on the pricey side, I suggest you grab the mini travel-size one first to test out this bad boy and then take the plunge and get the full sized one. You’ll be in lash heaven!
