Today's dip into the archives isn't so much a recipe as it is an edict. You'll see what I mean. One year later and its every bit as true and still makes me laugh. Hopefully it'll bring a smile to your day too. Be sure to stay tuned for Thirsty Thursdays tomorrow - I'll suspend my retrospective and will offer a new and wonderful beverage for your consumption!
Plump 'em, don't clump 'em! (tm Covergirl): June 4, 2009
So what's all this about mascara you say? For one thing, I love it and can't live without it. If I'm not wearing it there's a problem: I'm either very sick or very dead. Either way, call 911. For another thing, you should be wearing it too. I mean all of you, all the time. You know who you are. If you look in the mirror and can't find your eyes, then get thee to Sephora post haste! If you're a man and you're reading this - then, ok, you get a buy. If you're a gay man reading this - then call me, we'll go for drinks and dish about all things Bravo. I'm not kidding, I need someone to share my Bravo-love ... but I digress.
The Diva is talking mascara because she's a former make-up artist who's never lost her cosmetics jones - and because she won't always have a new recipe to post. Sure, the cooking/healthy eating/dieting stuff is the main focus of the blog, but can't a Diva have a little fun?! They've taken my Doritos but they'll have to wrestle the mascara wand from my cold, dead hands.
Currently I'm wearing a combination of two mascaras. I need both length and volume so for the first two coats I use: Lancome's L'Extreme. Its magical! It picks up every little lash you've got and gives great definition. For the last coat I'm currently liking Clinique's Naturally Glossy. Its on the dry side, which helps prevent clumps, and does a good job of building volume.
I'll be posting make-up tips and product reviews from time to time and I hope you'll enjoy them as much as the recipes. I want to look good and feel good ... and I want you to look good too ... because if you don't the Diva will know and she *will* mock you. ~wink~
More recipes later. For now, what's your favorite mascara and why?
