A roundup of eye-opening natural mascaras that will not flake, clump or move.
I’m not sure if this is my own private beauty hell, but for anyone else who may share a tendency toward “raccoon eyes” as a result of migrating mascara, I have a solution--solutions, actually--for you.
I gave up on mascara for the lower lashes years ago and have been struggling ever since to find a natural version that volumizes, lifts and separates the lashes, without depositing little black specks beneath my eyes. Finally, after diligent research and road-testing, I have achieved success! No more raccoon tracks. Here we go.
