National Lash Day is on February 19th. Face it – the eyes have it, and long lashes make women and men take notice. Think about it, your eyes are the windows to your soul and if that’s the case, you’d surely want others to see beauty when they look into your eyes.
To celebrate, do some pre-spring cleaning and replace your old, dried up, crusty, and cakey mascaras that are taking up space at the bottom of your makeup drawer and replace with some fresh tubes. Your peepers are the focal point of your face that putting enough effort and time to enhance them is definitely worth it.
A favorite of makeup artists everywhere, an eyelash curler is truly a girl’s best friend. It gently clamps around your lashes, making them reach for the sky and it only takes a few seconds!! Here’s my favorite: Precise engineering applies the perfect amount of pressure on eyelashes and will not pinch your eyelid. It instantly opens the appearance of the eye and prepares the lashes for mascara application.
The expiration date: Two to three months
Why it goes bad after that: While pumping the mascara wand into the tube helps to use more product, it also drags more air and potential germs into the products. This causes it to dry out or go bad.
Signs you need to replace it: If your mascara flakes, clumps, dries out, or smells, it’s time to toss it.
How to clean it: There is no way to clean or preserve your mascara, so your best bet to just replace it.
My Pick: Fiber Lush Mascara
Get the look of false lashes without the work. Fiber Lush Mascara is formulated with fibers that adhere to your lashes making them look longer, fuller and drop-dead luscious.

Let’s Talk False Lashes
One way that guarantees to bring noticeable improvements to your eyes is the use of false eyelashes. If you’re still holding back from using falsies, there’s no time better than now to learn how easy they can be to throw into your routine.
How to apply artificial lashes:
- Begin by measuring to ensure it fits your eyes. Do this by placing the strip of full lashes onto the line of your upper lashes. Then, using a small scissors cut the part on the outer edge that doesn’t fit.
- Once the right measurement is achieved, apply eyelash glue to the strip then let dry until a tacky texture is achieved.
- Apply the full false eyelashes to your natural lash line and put them as close as possible. Use mascara as finishing touch.

They can be worn day or night, are reusable and there are 5 styles to choose from. They will be sure to give you instant length and volume. Features natural hair fibers for higher quality lashes
