Anxiety.

This is pretty much me rambling and I won't have much structure to this post. So, I'll be jumping from topic to topic. Bare with me.

I have been hesitant to talk about this for quite some time now. Probably since the start of my blog. It's such a hard topic to talk about for me. Don't get me wrong, I go on and on about how to deal with anxiety, listen to others, and give advice to others. But to talk about my own? Nah. I'll pass. 

I guess that's why they call it anxiety...

Tutorial | Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara


Hey, y'all.

I know most of you in the beauty world have heard about Younique's Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes before. You've probably been bombarded at one time or another with messages, tweets, comments, DMs, and more with presenters telling you about it. Super annoying, right? I know. I used to be one of those girls. Seriously. I hated getting those messages! I would scroll right passed them without giving them a second look. Until one day I decided to give it a shot, and become an independent presenter myself. I love makeup, I love teaching women about it, and I love what it does for women (and men). I love Younique's philosophy and mission so much. I'm telling you, girls. They had me at hello.

When I first received the mascara and tried it out for myself, I really didn't think much of it. Seriously! I didn't think it was all that great, to be honest. But I decided to give it a chance anyway. When I really started getting used to using this kind of mascara, I fell in love. I was normally the type of girl to apply 2-3 mascaras each time I put on makeup when I wasn't using false lashes. Using 2-3 mascaras would work, sometimes, but if I used too much, it would be a clumpy mess. No bueno.

This mascara has replaced ALL of my mascaras, along with my falsies. Although I do indulge in my falsies every now and then; especially my Ardell Demi Whispies. My demi whispies are definitely a holy grail product for me. It's definitely a pain in the butt the next day to get that glue off of my lids, though!

I will be honest and say that this product takes some getting used to. You have to remember the steps and get used to the application process. However, for us makeup addicts, we know that applying makeup is a process. However, that's the beauty of makeup! To each is own. Find a way to make the application process Youniquely to yours! See what I did there?

Give it a shot! You just might be how I was. Not buying into the hype until you actually try it for yourself. 


Moodstruck Transplanting Gel

Step 1: Coat your lashes evenly with the Transplanting Gel.

Optional Step: Apply a thin coat of mascara as a base for an added effect



Moodstruck Natural Fibers

Step 2: Quickly apply the Natural Fibers on top of the Transplanting Gel before it dries.
Step 3: Apply another coat of the Transplanting Gel to lock in your Fiber Lashes.

Not satisfied? Do it again...and again...and again!
Repeat steps 1-3 until you've reached your desired effect.

Step 4: Comb out any clumps with a spoolie or lash comb.
Step 5: Repeat the process to your lower lashes.
Step 6: Brush off any excess fibers with a brush. (No worries, here. They come right off!)
Step 7: Bat those lashes, girl! You're ready to fly away!




FYI:
I didn't curl my lashes at all in these photos!
