Ipsy Glam Bag November 2017

Why You’ll Love It

  • We’re all about falsies. But when you’re running late (AKA us every morning), this mascara is the next best thing. It curls, separates, lifts, and volumizes. Oh, and the glossy finish makes us feel so glam.

  • Aside from looking futuristic and cool, the dome-shape makes sure your tiniest lashes are defined, lifted, and happy.

6 Mascara Hacks You’ve Never Heard

Step up your lash game for good.

1. To avoid smudges, place a business card behind your lashes while applying mascara.

2. For added definition, use a lip brush to apply on bottom lashes.

3. For more volume, lightly dust translucent powder onto your lashes between coats.

4. To clean up smudges, wait for it to dry, then flick it away with a q-tip dipped in makeup remover.

5. To use it in place of liquid eyeliner, lightly dip an angled brush into your mascara and glide it along your lashline.

6. For lower lash precision, hold the wand vertically when applying to your bottom lashes.

How to Make This Nude Hue Stay True

1. Scrub your lips with a toothbrush or clean disposable mascara wand.

3. Swipe on a coat of the creamy nude gloss for understated perfection.

Make Your Foundation Look Completely Undetectable

1. Start with moisturized skin. Apply your fave face cream or oil and let it soak in for at least five minutes.

2. Warm up the foundation between your fingers—it’ll blend way more easily when it’s closer to your skin’s temp.

3. Dot the foundation onto your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. Use your fingers or a  brush to smooth it out towards your hairline, neckline, and ears.

4. Spritz a blending sponge with any face mist and use it to buff out the foundation until it looks just like skin.

5. To finish, splash your whole face with a touch of the face mist.

Bonus tip: Want more natural coverage? Add a few drops of moisturizer or oil to the foundation. Want fuller coverage? Mix in a bit of concealer.
