    I know I have tons of questions. I was wondering if anyone could help me with my eyelashes. I use neutrogena mascara and I lash separator after but it seems that my eyelashes always stick together even when I do separate what can I do about this?

    If I were you, I'd switch mascaras...either that, or maybe your mascara is expired.

    maybe is the brush... Why dont you visit a Dior counter, if money isnt the problem, and try LongOptic, its brush separates and elongates your lashes... also Fascination, which its a freestyle mascara, cause you can separate, and you can also make your lashes look bushy, depending on how much you apply...OR, Dior Show! their new one, which is fantastic!

    This is my recommendation... First of alll use some vaseline at night for example. That will make your lashes soft and will nourish them.
    Then before you apply mascara curl them with an eyelash curler, I personally recommend Shu Uemura's curler.
    Then as a mascara, the best for me are Lancome's especially Definicils or Flextencils (the last one curls and lengthens them) and what is very important, comb them after you apply the mascara to separate them, remove clumps and put them in place. For this, the best comb there is is Tweezerman's comb. Check it out on their website. It's a tool used by all pro's and it will last you for the rest of your life.
    If you want a cheaper mascara, try L'Oreal Double Extend. One one side it has a primer to make the lashes longer and hold the curl and the other side is a mascara which makes the lashes very very intense. They look almost fake B) .

    HTH,

    my favourite mascara right now is LAURA MERCIER composition mascara.

    i used to have problems with my lashes in the past. they used to fall out when i cleansed my eyes.

    I've been using TALIKA nourishing gel for over a year now (on and off). its a brilliant treatment which has been on th emarket for at least since my mom was a teen.
    ... and it really really works. my lashes are strong, visible and most importantly DONT fall out anymore :flower:

    so i think the first step is to buy a new mascara ;)

    The vaseline will nourish your lashes making them softer and it should make them easier to curl.
    As for the separator, it's the tweezerman's comb I was talking about.

    I love Maybelline's Lash Discovery w/ the mini brush for day (it really gets in there and brings out those itty bitty lashes w/out sticking them together) and for night I love Benefit's new Bad Gal lash . . . so glam!

    I think lancome has the best mascaras. Structured bristles with great application no matter your eyelash length.

    I used to have a clump problem too, but I've solved it! I curl my lashes first (shu curler) and then use Chanel Drama Lashes mascara. I was unsure of it at first, but this is one of the best mascaras. Then I just run a eyelash comb over any little clumps that might be there. Trust me on this- my sister who refused to even touch her eyelashes with mascara has been trying to steal my mascara every time I leave my purse or make-up trunk around!

    Has anyone tried Castor Oil on their eyelashes to make them longer? I was just wondering how to apply it to my lashes? Should I just dab the TIPS of the eyelashes or get a bit on the roots as well? Thanks for your help :p
