Beauty Basics: Killer Mascara

I was in New York City a couple of weeks ago for a business trip and realized I had failed to drop my mascara in my make-up bag before heading out the door on an early morning flight. I had already scheduled an appointment at Barney's Blow Bar (always my first stop in NYC (why? why? why do we not have Blow Bar in Birmingham???)), so I figured I would drop by the Barney's beauty counter and grab a fresh tube on my way out the door to my lunch appointment. Also, I looked forward to trying something new with the benefit of some great advice.

It just so happened that the makeup counter closest to the Blow Bar was Kevyn Aucoin. I needed mascara, I explained to the lady behind the counter, and I needed it not to smudge or come off on my upper lids and, also, I wanted thick full lashes but no clumps. She said, "I have just the thing. This one is my favorite. You will love it!" 

And she was right!! Kevyn Aucoin's Expert Mascara is #legit the best I have ever used. I am pretty picky when it comes to mascara. While I used to be crazy about Charlotte Tilbury's, the problem was that it smudged off all over my upper and lower lids throughout the day -- pretty sloppy looking after an hour or two, despite being a perfect application.

In any event, I've been using Kevin Aucoin's Expert Mascara for over a month now and it is sure to impress you. It's my favorite, ever.
