I’ve seen a few makeup artist and aetheticians who are doing eyelash extensions. They look amazing. I’m sure prices vary, but around here it runs $200-$250. You could also just have your eyelashes tinted if they are naturally long and you just need color.

I’ve also tried that “tubes technology” mascara and it stays on really well. In fact, I don’t like to use it for day to day use because it is too hard to get off. You might check and see if they have a waterproof version. It’s called Loreal Double Extend.

I just looked it up and I guess the Loreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes is waterproof. It stays on until you pull off the tubes.

Get your eyelashes dyed.

I do this during allergy season.  It’s pretty cheap. 

But don’t go to a hair salon.  Those gals don’t seem to know what they are doing.

Go to a facial salon.

I find that putting on a really good under-eye concealer and powder underneath the eye can stop the mascara from ‘bleeding’ onto your skin. Maybe you could try out some other mascaras at department stores and see if it last the day?

have you every tried using clear mascara, that could work good too!  Or what I plan on doing is using fake lashes, I use it all the time when I go out, the kind that you buy from CVS or Walgreens.  They’re so cheap and you can cut them if you need to.  I never have to put mascara on when I wear them.  It takes practice putting them on, so just try it out, its like 4 bucks!

I use the L’oreal tube mascara that arizonabride mentioned. It comes in a red and white tube (one side is primer the other the mascara). I don’t have any issues taking it off – just needs lots of warm water and it literally comes off in tubes. I don’t have any problems w/it smudging under my eye. It takes little practice to get the right volume though. I also wear contacts and have not had any issues w/irritation.

Could you use a bit of eyeshadow or liner on the lower lash line in lieu of mascara? (Wow, that was a lot of L’s.) Personally I don’t think you really need mascara on the bottom lashes. As long as the top part of the eye isn’t overdone I don’t think it looks unbalanced.

I’m also a big fan of L’oreal’s Double Tube mascara.  It’s one of the pricier drug store mascaras, though not by too much.  If you go to the L’oreal website, you can usually find a $1 off coupon for their products.

Urban Decay Primer Potion seems to be a cure-all for any eye makeup problems–I have no smudging or creasing of any sort when I use it.

I say go with an eyelash curler  and a clear mascara!

It will look natural and your eyes will pop in your pictures.

I have the same problem, actually I get black eye on top too due to my oily skin. A good eye primer does the trick! I use Bare Escentuals Primer, I love it.

Neutrogena has an eyelash tint that works well and doesn’t rub off.  You might want to give that a try – it’s great for sensitive eyes too.
