Brow gel can take a second to dry, so make sure you don't open your eyes super-wide to take in all the wonders of the universe, or you might end up with mascara dots on your browbone or — worst of all — under your eyes.
Stare straight ahead for about 30 seconds to a minute to ensure the gel is 100% dry. Make a lot of weird eye contact with your reflection. Think your thoughts. Whatever makes you happy.
Voila! You now have perfectly long, thick, dark eyelashes — and zero fear that you'll look like a raccoon at the end of the day.
The brow gel doesn't add goop or bulk to my lashes — if they get a little clumpy, brush them out a with a clean spoolie or a dedicated lash comb once the gel is dry.
Unlike waterproof mascaras, which you have to scour off your face, the gel-mascara combo comes off easily with makeup remover. For anyone who has delicate under eyes — hello, it me — this is a life-changer.
So you can leave the running mascara to the ~dramatic angels~ of the world.
Your summer beauty routine will never be the same. Consider it a gift from me to you.
