A) You already know.
B) You will think I’m weird for doing.
Clearly my tip is a toss up between bust or life-long shunning, so let’s get right to it, shall we?
My mascara is the one makeup item I don’t like to live without. Even if I skip all the rest of my makeup, I can’t skip my mascara. It’s a girl-with-light-colored-lashes dream come true. But! It can get so goopy and gummy! And make it hard to go on smoothly. (Especially during quick applications at red lights in the car. *ahem*)
Unless (and here comes the tip) you warm it up before applying!
Yes, warm mascara not only makes for better application, but it also makes your current tube of eyelash magic last longer!
Now, I’ve heard that there are some mascara warmers out there on the market, but ladies, save your hard earned money and do it the lazy mom way….
Stick that tube of mascara under your armpit (a clothed armpit, mind you) and it gets toasty warm in no time!
Is that gross? Okay, I’ve also warmed mine between my legs, or if I have a pocket in my pants, I shove it in there for a while.
Just start warming your mascara about three-five minutes before you need to apply it and it will go on like butta! When I’m putting on all my makeup, I just slap the mascara under my armpit while I apply the rest of my makeup and viola! By the time I’m ready to apply my mascara, it’s warmed and ready to go!
So, um… I hope this tip hasn’t damaged our relationship any.
I’ll understand if from now on you see me as “that girl who sticks her mascara where?!”
But don’t hate me for being beautiful. Or… is it resourceful? Or… maybe it’s weird?
Love And Warm Armpit Mascara For All,
The Lazy Mom
