You can prime, curl, elevate. You should purchase falsies, half strips or people, and you may even get them (semi)completely glued on.
But what should you toss the mascara altogether? (You in all probability have to, it is perhaps expired.) You’re left together with your pure eye form for one, and lashes that in all probability aren’t as quick and wimpy as you bear in mind.
