This may surprise you girls, but even though I adore getting all dolled up and spending forever getting my makeup just perfect, there are some days where I just want to skip it all and go natural. Maybe it’s just me, but I find a Zen-like quality in facing the world purely, wearing only sunscreen and lip balm.
If you’re the same way, you’ll enjoy this tip: skip your mascara for a day and wear Vaseline on your eyelashes. Yes, I do mean petroleum jelly. It makes your lashes look thick and shiny, plus it protects and moisturizes an area of your body I bet you never moisturize. It’s not only good looking, but good for you! What could be better?
You can also do a quick eyelash curling with your curler (try the classic Shu Uemura eyelash curler). Make sure to hit the little lashes in the corners (you can even heat the curler up for a moment with your hairdryer for a “perming” effect), and do this before you apply the Vaseline. Enjoy!

I’ve done this trick for so long! I also use coconut oil!
Monica – me too – I love coconut oil as a makeup remover, moisturizer and so much more!
