I used to love roaming the cosmetic aisles of the grocery store, especially when there was a makeup sale. In most cases, I would buy a product and then end up not using it. Turns out, it was usually the newly bought mascara that went left unused. Why mascara? Because most mascaras would hurt the root of my lashes or would clump them up. Picking mascara for small eyes can be a hastle. I have very short, straight lashes, so the majority of the mascaras out there just can't do their job for me. It helped to curl my lashes before I applied my mascara, but that method only lasted for a few hours. Out of frustration, I even began to skip that step in my morning makeup routine. Worse yet, I stopped applying mascara all together. That is, until recently. I've finally came across a mascara that works for me: Mirenesse Secret Weapon Mascara.
Picking Mascara For Small Eyes
My eyes: small, round, and olive-shaped. I also wear contacts lenses, which makes application a little more complicated.
My lashes: short, straight, and average in thickness.
Mirenesse Secret Weapon Mascara:
Hands down, my all time favorite mascara. My lashes are thicker and longer with no smudging/running all day long. This mascara is gentle on my lashes, and it doesn't give them that dried-eye effect at the end of the day. Also, the mascara is easy to remove.
Downside? Mirenesse Secret Weapon Mascara is a little pricier than the average mascara (but worth ever penny), and it is not stocked in any grocery store. I ordered mine online (see link below) and it came in the mail only a few days later.
Mascara Application: First, start from the base of your lashes and brush down (start with brush position on top of the lashes). Follow by a second coating with your brush positioned under the lashes at its base. Pull upward.
If you are like me and have always wanted those long, Hollywood lashes, but didn't want to venture into the realm of applying false eyelashes, try Mirenesse Secret Weapon Mascara and you will have them.

Flaunt your new glamorous eyes. "The Secret Weapon" Mascara from Mirenesse coats each individual lash to curl and lengthen your lashes as it provides rich color. And you don't have to worry about clumpy, flaking lashes - this waterproof mascara will not run or smudge. You apply it and forget it, no reapplication is ever needed. Mirenesse is not an oil-based paint like conventional mascara, instead it forms a tiny tube around every lash! The tube wraps itself around the lash making them thicker and longer without the need for those dreaded fibers. No eye makeup remover needed, apply warm water and gentle pressure and the tubes slide right off your lashes. Removal is complete without any residue or lash root buildup.
