All About Mascara

“The only drama I enjoy is in my lashes”

Eyes are the windows to the soul and lashes are the perfect Pair of curtains. So let’s keep those lashes luscious. The most common and economical way to do so is by using mascara.
Mascara can help us darken, thicken, lengthen or define the eyelashes. Focus on the eye makeup has always been a priority for women, not just in the modern times but as far as historical evidence can take us we can see ancient women aesthetically adorn their eyes with kohl mainly made out of natural materials like charcoal and soot.
Eyelashes stand out as a very prominent part of the eyes. Darkening, thickening or lengthening them with mascara complete the eye makeup, giving it a more glamorous edge.
You can get Mascara in one of the three forms of liquid, cake or cream. The most widely used is the liquid form, although the mascara product has various formulas. Most contain the basic components of pigments, oils, waxes and preservatives.
