When it comes to waterproof mascara, there is most definitely a time and a place for it. Weddings, funerals and long events such as festivals to name a few.
But, should you be wearing it every day? In my opinion, no. Here are three things you should know about waterproof mascara.
- It will dry out your lashes
Although it is excellent for certain occasions, using waterproof mascara on a continual basis will dry out your lashes. We all know what happens to hair when it's dry - breakage. If you are an avid user of waterproof, you might notice your lashes are somewhat short and refuse to grow.
Try introducing a lash serum into your routine to make them softer and stronger and switch to a non-waterproof formula. Give it a month of this combination, and you won't recognise your lashes.
- There is an alternative...
A water resistant formula is just as long-lasting as a waterproof one, but it's much easier on the lashes as it contains fewer drying components. And it's much easier to remove leading to less lash breakage.
- You can wear every day, but you'll need an extra step
If you're intent on wearing a waterproof mascara every day, a lash primer will act as a protective barrier between your lashes and the harsh ingredients of a waterproof mascara. Make sure you choose one with hydrating ingredients like Vitamin E and Chamomile.
