pretty simple: how to use a mascara shield

{I just want to start this post by saying thank you for reading this blog! I wholeheartedly thank you! The main reason I started this blog was to share beauty tips & techniques I've learned along the way while working in the cosmetic and beauty industry for the past 10+ years. I'm sharing all of this with you just like I would share it with my own sisters. I hope you will continue to read and feel inspired just as you have inspired me to continue typing away at this computer.}

pretty simple: how to use a mascara shield

After I posted the 12 Days of Mascara, I got a few emails asking for a good tip on how to avoid mascara transfer to the top and lower eyelids when applying mascara. Instead of doing a tutorial, I thought it might be easier to do a quick video to show you how to use a mascara shield. I've been using a mascara shield forever. It is the best tip for avoiding that pesky transfer. If you ever have to apply mascara to someone else (even if you are not a professional makeup artist - think helping your grandma at the wedding or little sister doing their makeup for the first time) remember this tip. It's the easiest way to do it. I use a shield on all of our clients. Give it a try. I hope you have a smudge-free mascara day!

p.s. - Okay, it may not be "all the rage in the cosmetic tools world right now" (I can't help that I get so excited about these things!), but I've started to notice them a lot more, even at Target!

side note: The likelihood of getting a paper cut near your eye while using a mascara shield card is slim to none! When this happened to me on my lower lash line, I was in a elevator looking at the mirror and going down while in Las Vegas (hence the awkward chuckle in the video above). Probably not the best idea. Gotta love those moments. Oh the things I've done for makeup! Happy Friday!
