    melting mascara?

    yeah... my 3rd post in 5 min... I though this board needed more new topics <IMG SRC="">
    I'm using maybelline's waterproof mascara, which I really loooooove BUT after 3 hours or so, when I look at the mirrow I look like a panda. I don't apply it on my lower lashes and it's waterproof. I was thinking that it's because I have short lashes... Anyone with similar experiences?

    I'm not an expert in the area, but are you putting too much on?

    Hi MiffyBunny...I'm a mascara addict, lol. It's the one cosmetic I refuse to be without. That said, I've tried them all, everything from the cheapest to the expensive stuff. Maybelline does make my lashes look good, but I've had the same problem, even with the waterproof (which I always wear, because I swim a lot). The one I've found that works the best is Max Factor's 2000 Calories, in waterproof formula. Sometimes, the reason ANY mascara, including waterproof, runs, is because your skin has a tendency to be oily or you've used moisturizer or an oil-based makeup close to the eyes. For me, the 2000 Calorie, however, seems to be best at avoiding running even then. good luck.

    Thank you Down. You're right, I have oily skin and use moisturiser under make up though my foundation is oil free. Still, I'm sad that I have to give up on my maybelline mascara... I never used MaxFactor, except a lash curler which doent work well on me, but my friends love their products. I'll sure try calorie 2000 waterproof.

    I don't wear makeup much anymore, but I have used a mascara called "24 Hour" for years.Wears like concrete.I can't remember the manufacturer...Maybelline or Fresh Lash? Blue and white tube. I have oily skin and straight thin lashes, some of which curve downward, so I must use an eyelash curler. Applying a little pressed powder under lower lashes,over shadow,before applying mascara helps.Also, if your mascara gets old it will flake easier. Hope this helps.

    I also use a Maybellene waterproof mascara and used to get that same panda look! Now I use a lash curler before and after appying mascara. I tend to use less mascara these days but maintain the dark lash colour I love by tinting my lashes every 3 weeks. (you can use a home tinting kit or go to a salon). I use the mascara to get more volume and the curler to get the curl (well, of course!! LOL).

    Another trick I use, I learned on a "wedding make-up application" course. The emphasis on the course was applying make-up so that it would look good and stay put!! When applying face powder anywhere on your face, we were taught to use a soft powder puff and PRESS the powder into each area, including under the eyes. You press the powder into your foundation or moisuriser rather than wipe it across your skin. You can start by dusting the powder over your face with a big brush but then be sure to press it (gently) into each area with the powder puff (the application thingy that comes with pressed powder compacts). I have found that this works well - especially when combined with tinted, curled lashes and moderate amounts of mascara (as above) for stopping "panda" eyes!
