Doing away with daily mascara


Most everyone can agree that mascara is the fastest way to get wide awake and fresh look. It is almost every girl must have along with lip gloss. However it can be one of the most difficult products to get to look good and stay looking good. The problem with mascara is that it can run when you swim or cry. It may not be the best product to have on while exercise or camping. And even though it is sure to come off when you need it on it can also be difficult to remove without damaging your lashes. The last think we want is less lashes. So what product can help us get the beautiful eyes that will WOW everyone without all the problems that come with daily mascara? The answer may be Semi Permanent mascara.

How does Semi Permanent mascara differ from daily mascara? Well simply put it is similar to dying your hair and just like dying your hair it is only temporarily. The reason for this is that our eyelashes do fall out every three to six weeks; therefore the new lashes coming in will no longer be tinted. The benefits from the semi permanent mascara are that there is no upkeep for those three to six weeks. You can go swimming, hiking, cry at a wedding or any number of those things that would cause the daily mascara to disappear. Now yes there is waterproof mascara that is made for those occasions however they are more difficult to remove and quite easily damage you lashes while removing.

Semi permanent mascara is great for individuals that have light to medium colored lashes and would love a product that can make their eyes more noticeable. Now why isn’t it for those of us with dark lashes, well most semi permanent mascara does not lengthen or thicken the lashes. So make black lashes black wouldn’t make a change that would be noticeable. However there are products that can do it all. You can get the darker lashes and add volume and length for two to six weeks at a time.

So what kind of products is out there to give you those darker lashes?  To start with there are salon options.

You may need touch ups to take care of newly grown in lashes.
