Mascara Challenge #2

I found this idea through Makeup Artist Wayne Goss. He had a 30 day Mascara Challenge on his YouTube channel.

With all of the mascara's I have I thought it would be neat to try.

For me watching his videos, I found it fun to figure out if it was a drugstore brand or more high end. Sometimes I was surprised at the results.

Here is my Mascara Challenge.

- I am using clean curled lashes
- I will coat the lashes with 2 - 3 coats depending on the brand, clumping etc.
- I will show the applicator
- At the end of the video, I will show the mascara
