my beauty secret


If I was only able to pick one type of makeup to wear…it would have to be mascara.  It makes tired eyes look more awake and enhances your beauty. (fyi: I wear mascara over my eye-lash extensions).  I’m big on your eyelashes looking fuller vs looking longer.  Too long is not a good look in my opinion.  Today I’m sharing one of my most favorite beauty products ever!! I’ve been using it the past 10+ years.  I like to call it my little beauty secret…and it helps with enhancing the fullness of your eyelashes!




It’s from Clinique and is called Lash Building Primer!


Apply one coat on each eye.  Wait 10 seconds.  Then apply another coat.  Wait 10 seconds.

Now you are ready to Apply your mascara.

Notice how your lashes will be thicker, fuller, & more dramatic.


So I tested a few different mascara’s that would be perfect to layer over Clinique’s primer

(see below for individual reviews)


M  A  C

The price point on this one was the lowest.  There was no clumping, only full lashes.

Lancome Definicils

This one was not clumpy and I love the how dark the black is.  I also noticed it was easy to get those smaller lashes in the corners of your eye.

Dolce and Gabbana

This one was my favorite.  As you can see in the picture above the bristles are very small.  It’s more of a rubber material than a brush.  I feel like I had the most control with this mascara.  It doesn’t hurt that is has pretty gold packaging too.
