My Mascara Routine

Mascara is usually the only makeup I wear to school (and most other days for that matter), so I thought I would share my daily routine. Because I only wear mascara to school, I like to make it pop. I tend to reach for waterproof mascaras because they stay on better and holds the curl. I also have field hockey practice after school and I don’t want black lines running down my face! This process does change at times depending on which mascaras I have on hand.

First I start with bare eyelashes and then use the Covergirl Flamed Out mascara, applying one to two coats of that. I find that this mascara doesn’t add that much volume to my lashes but it does give them some curl. Then I take the Maybelline Pumped Up mascara and apply a couple coats of that. Finally I add one coat of the Maybelline mascara on my bottom lashes.

Although not seen in this mascara routine, I also have a couple other favorites. My favorite non-waterproof one is Perversion by Urban Decay. I received a sample of it in my Ipsy bag a few months ago and I fell in love! If they made it in waterproof version I would definitely buy the full size and wear it everyday. Another favorite is The Rocket by Maybelline. It is a great all-in-one mascara that comes at a drugstore price.

What are your favorite mascaras? I would love to know!


  1. I have yet to try out a maybelline mascara! Which one do you recommend for holding curls? That's my biggest concern now :P

  2. I would recommend either The Rocket or the Volume Express One-by-One. I'm sure there are others but out of the ones I've tried those have worked the best in terms of curl!

  3. I love the Maybelline mascara! Great Post! New follower!
