Sometimes simplicity makes all the difference. Getting all dolled up doesn’t have to become a hassle every time you have somewhere to go. A nice dress or outfit can be complemented with a few jewelry items, a fashionable hairstyle (or hair brushed out straight) and a light smattering of makeup.
Whether you are going for all-out glam or girl-next-door gorgeous, a coat or two of mascara will work wonders for bringing out your beautiful eyes and long lashes. If you don't regularly wear makeup, you may want to consider these questions before selecting mascara from among countless brands and styles.
What type of eyelashes do I have? Are they long, curly, thick, thin, short, just right?
What will look best with my complexion? What will complement my outfit and wardrobe in general?
Do I plan to go swimming? Is there a chance I might cry, or laugh so hard that I cry? Am I going to take a quick shower at some point and hope to avoid re-doing my makeup entirely?
Do you cringe at the thought of that archaic metal eyelash curler getting within a foot of your face?
Do you feel that your eyelashes are very blonde or not so noticeable? Do you often feel like you have to glob a lot makeup onto them just to make them stand out?

No matter which mascara suits you best, remember to pair it with a pretty shadow and eyeliner if you so desire. To prevent smudges on your pillows and bits of makeup irritating your eyes overnight, remember to remove mascara and other makeup with a gentle cleanser before bed.
