Kate's Product Picks: Mascara!!!

I'm so excited to write about mascara -- I have so many feelings and opinions about what is by far and away my favorite makeup item!

By the way, my second favorite product is bronzer... and if you've seen my pale skin that shouldn't be a surprise.

I almost ruined my lashes in high school wearing too much waterproof mascara; it would never fully wash off and eventually turned into a black cement that hurt and thinned my lash line. It was bad -- be careful of waterproof mascara.

In the news broadcasting business A LOT of women wear false lashes. I love false lashes, but don't have the time, money or patience to wear them everyday. Only on special occasions for me!

My point, is that a thick, full lash line is critical if you want your eyes to pop.
