I’ll admit it. I don’t wear makeup as often as I used to. When I was younger, I wore makeup every single day. I didn’t even like leaving the house without my makeup on! I know that was a habit I picked up from my mom.
Since becoming a mom myself, time has become very precious, and I just can’t spare the time to apply makeup every day. I do, however, like to wear makeup on special occasions and on family outings.
Mascara is one of my must have items, and I’m very particular about which mascaras I choose. In fact, there are only 2 mascaras that I can give a thumbs up to: Earth Lab Raw Mascara and Pacifica Stellar Gaze Mascara.
Since I don’t wear mascara every day, it tends to expire before I use it all up. To help extend the life of my mascara, I have started to a drop of lavender essential oil to my mascara.
In addition to extending the life of your mascara, the lavender essential oil can promote lash growth and strengthen and volumize your lashes. Pretty cool, huh? I’ve also heard that Frankincense and Rosemary work well too.
I just love how many awesome uses there are for essential oils!
