You can extend the life of your mascara by weeks if you add a few drops of water! Start with one drop, you can always add more, and in another week or two, add a few more drops.
Also, I’ve tried many, many mascaras ($20-30, whatever, I’ll pay a premium for rockstar lashes) but to my surprise, I keep going back to old faithful…L’oreal. This stuff rocks and you can find it at Walgreens, Walmart, Target, etc. Just remember 12X, color: Blackest Black, and I don’t use waterproof.
Hope this tip helps stretch your dollar! If you have any makeup tips, please do share.
