Okay… Lets be real… Yes, I have a PROBLEM and it is BIG… Last night when I went out my makeup was on fleek, on point, snatched! But, then everything we wrong.
Few things look more crappy than BLACK MASCARA smudging under the eyes and all over the face. I can handle foundation fading, lipstick bleeding outside the lines and eye shadow disappearing. But, not mascara melting! Ya, I’ll be honest… It happened to me just last night while out with friends on a busy night at STARBUCKS. That’s right, the general public trying to slurp down their coffee minding their own business was also exposed to my makeup mishap. In my own defense it was about 100 degrees where I live with almost 100% humidity . But, lets not make frecking excuses! Lets try to find answers so innocent people don’t have to see black liquid uncontrollably dripping down other peoples mugs! So, now that you know the awful truth lets pull it together to find the answers needed. I’ve made it my mission to make a list of things which may help keep mascara where it belongs. On the eye lash!
