Careful with that mascara wand, gals. When trying to remove the gunk, you can actually break or pull off the lashes that were just grown. We like the new “lash support system” from Colorescience Pro nurtures lashes and takes their flutter further. It also works with all lash growth product, like Latisse,
STEP ONE: FINE LINE – Liquid Eyeliner
After applying any lash growth product, apply this indelible liquid eyeliner. Fine Line is a waterproof formula that is free of dyes. Whether applied thinly to enhance or dramatically to draw attention, this pure mineral formula is safe for this sensitive eye area. (This takes some practice.The first time I tried it I looked like Amy Winehouse.)
STEP TWO: PROFESSIONAL EYELASH CURLER
Designed with a curved bar to adapt to all eye shapes, this Japanese designed curler is also padded to protect and lengthen lavish lashes. Durable and refillable, the curler comes with two replaceable rubber liners that are safe for everyday use. (Everyone should use one of these.)
STEP THREE: CRY ME A RIVER – Waterproof Mascara
Colorescience Pro uses tubing mascara (in existence for years but only recently growing in popularity), an acrylic copolymer formulation that “tubes” the lashes, covering them 360 degrees as it dries. It offers waterproof benefits – but easily removed with just warm water and light pressure. Created without the use of skin-damaging ingredients such as dyes and coal tar, this formula amplifies lashes. Wheat protein and Vitamin E promote curly, stronger lashes. (We love this. More flutter and easy to remove.)
