Currently Obsessed: Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Today I had the pleasure of taking those awful passport photo-type pictures for my Dominican residency.  I remembered that for my Greek passport, I wasn't allowed to wear makeup and that I couldn't smile.  The photo is in black & white and its super awkward - my mother calls it my Titanic Survivor picture.

So today I went prepared wearing a shirt con mangas [sleeves] and without makeup/earrings.  The photographer kept telling me that I needed to get my bangs away from my forehead, but I didn't have a bobby pin or rubber band.  With my oily looking skin (thank you humidity) and my hair and bangs slicked back behind my shoulders I look like a greasy high schooler.  Ew!

Luckily, I was able to sneak in my Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.  It looks so natural that the photographer never knew I was wearing a tad bit of make up, muahaha.

This nifty little $10 tool has been at the top of my makeup bag since the day I bought it.  It reaches your itty bitty lashes and gives you Kim Kardashian lids, I promise.  Also, it never comes off.  Makeup remover doesn't even work - only hot water will take it off.  And if you're lazy at removing your makeup properly [like myself] then the same coat will last you a couple of days.

Shhh, don't tell. 


  1. This looks like something I absolutely know me and makeup are just not that great of friends lol.

    miss you!!


  2. Ooh very cool. I'm always on the hunt for a great mascara that I have yet to find. That so strange about the passport picture...I remember when I got mine taken makeup and smiling and bangs were not a problem.
