Mascara Routine! (For Big Bold Lashes)

Good morning loves! I have a new video up for you :) This one is a step by step on the techniques I use when applying my mascara to make my lashes look big and bold. I also talk about how I take care of my lashes. Although I've experimented with false eyelashes, I am not a huge fan of how they feel on my eye, and prefer applying a few layers of mascara instead. I haven't done a "talk-through" tutorial in a long time! What do you guys think of this style of video? Or do you prefer voice-over? Let me know in the comments! (My lipstick is "Sao Paulo" lip creme by NYX) Hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful!

Techniques summarized:
1. Start with mascara wand right in the base
2. "Zig zag" left to right
3. Turn wand upright, vertically then press into lashes
4. Fan out lashes
5. Turn wand outward as you're moving up lash

 Some before & afters!

  12. You have beautiful lashes Annie :D


  13. Hi Annie, awesome viddie as usual! I really enjoyed the talk through video if your doing a more in depth and detailed video like i.e. with this video i really enjoyed the talk through. it is defiantly a lot more personable. I enjoy the voice overs when your doing multiple things and want to be short, simple and sweet and to the the point. Hope that helps. Love your blog and videos, keep up the fabulous work!


  14. Hi Annie, love the talk through video! Its great when you want to explain a certain technique/thing in detail. I find that your voice over is much better when you are going through a lot of stuff though. Mix it up! Thanks!

    Do you have any dark under eye circle tricks?

  15. Talk through videos are nice :) thanks for the tutorial, I definitely learned some new things :) XXX Laura

  16. Great techniques !
    I do the same thing for my lower lashes, but I avoid to put mascara there, because it tends to look weird on me... But it looks good on you, and you're right not to put so much, this is the perfect amount :)

  26. I would love to hear your opinion on the outlets in the USA regarding brands and if they are a bargain.

  27. Hey Annie, hope it doesn't sound super creeper, but I was wondering what shade your natural/usual skin tone is? I ask, cause I'm constantly deliberating on how lipsticks and colors show up on you, and trying to compare to myself. I'm a MAC NC35-40 depending on season.

  28. Hey Annie, I really liked your video, and all of them by the way ! :)
    Could you tell us what lipstick are you wearing in the vid please ? Thx xo

  29. Annie, great information but do you have tips for older woman? As I age I can't find my lips anymore, my checks feld down, and my eye brows have fallen out. Yikes! What has happened to me. Help!

  30. Thanks! Can you do a fashion haul for the summer?

  31. Wow in the pictures you can really see how much difference mascara makes!!!
