The new and enhanced Fiber Lashes Mascara (available NOW) was just announced last week and will be for sale starting July 15! Younique 3D Fiber Lashes+ has been clinically tested and shows an increase average lash volume of 400% with one coat and 2000% when 3 coats are applied! Um, that’s insane! This made in the USA mascara is 100% hypoallergenic and ophthalmologist tested and approved! It’s available for purchase (only $29 + tax) soon, but read further about how you can get your hands on it sooner.
In my bag at all times, I have a pair of sunglasses and lip color. My favorite sunglasses? Hands down: Quay Australia, pronounced ‘key.’ They’re affordable, fashionable and come in a variety of styles. You can shop the Australian brand sunglasses from their website (they only take PayPal) or from a bunch of other online retailers like…
I love a good social media campaign. I mean, c’mon! I live and breathe SOCIAL MEDIA. One of the big reasons I joined Younique was because they are the first direct sales company to market and sell almost exclusively through the use of social media.
1) You’re using regular mascara underneath your 3D Fiber Lashes. Yes, the insert that comes with Younique’s mascara says to use over regular mascara, but as you know, all mascaras are not the same. Try using your 3D Fiber Lashes without regular mascara underneath. You just might like it. Note: I don’t use regular mascara underneath the Younique mascara. It’s my preference and I’ve found that I like my lashes better when I’m only using Younique’s. If you are adamant about using mascara underneath, make sure you are using a “lengthening” mascara and not a “thickening” mascara as this can cause clumps. I’ve used Ulta’s Legendary Lengths Mascara underneath with no problem.
2) Using too much gel or fibers. Sometimes when you first start using the gel, a lot of it gets on the lash brush. Try scraping a good amount of it off. Use less gel and less fibers, and build “layers” versus trying to achieve the look with one coat. The mascara is buildable so use less, just more coats. For example: gel, fibers, gel. Let sit for 30 seconds then gel, fibers, gel again.
3) Not letting the fibers set long enough. If you don’t let the fibers set long enough and stick to the gel, it can cause the fibers to stick to the wand. Below is my method to applying 3D Fiber Lashes. Switching off between eyes gives the fibers time to set and won’t come off on the gel wand, which can cause clumping. Try applying Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara in this order:
Gel eye 1.
Gel eye 2.
Fibers eye 1.
Fibers eye 2.
Gel eye 1 to seal it up.
Gel eye 2 to seal it up.
Repeat to continue building on the length/thickness.
I also recommend having a lash comb in your makeup bag in case you need to separate any of your lashes. Younique sells a fantastic, sturdy lash comb/brow brush for only $20 that separates, tames, and declumps lashes. I have a couple lashes that seem to always group together and this comb is perfect for splitting the two up. Shop for the brush here.
