This past weekend, I went to see Tori to get golden blonde lowlights and highlights all over. I absolutely love the results (I always do with her! She’s so talented.) and she made me feel like a million bucks! As we get closer to my wedding day, I’m thinking of adding even more lowlights. Stay tuned!

Essential Summer Makeup Products

I don’t wear a ton of makeup, mainly because I just don’t have the time for it. I try to keep it simple most of the time by using a mascara similar to the one you can look at here, face powder if I happen to have any breakouts, and of course, my trusted lip gloss. This gives a really natural look that is perfect for everyday wear as it doesn’t take too long to apply. On the other hand, when I’m going out to an event, dinner, special occasion, etc., I’ll add eyeshadow, blush or bronzer, eyeliner and another coat or two of my mascara. Below are my summer makeup essentials that I use for everyday wear. Nothing fancy, but all great products that help me achieve a pulled together look.


3D Fiber Lash Mascara and eye tools

Elf Eyelash Curler ($3) / 3D Fiber Lash Mascara ($29) / EcoTools Bamboo Lash & Brow Groomer ($4.19)

Step 1: Curl eyelashes.

Step 2: Apply 3D Fiber Lash Gel and Fibers. For how-to tips, click here.

Step 3: Comb out lashes once gel is dry to help separate lashes if needed.


Younique Lip GlossYounique Lip Glosses ($15) in: Loveable / Ladylike / Luxe

Which lip gloss I wear depends on my mood and how much I feel like getting dolled up. Loveable is my favorite color and I keep this in purse most days because I’m always in the mood to wear it. Ladylike is more for a night out. I’m not a huge fan of red lips on myself so I only use this one for special occasions. Luxe is a perfect nude that I wear when I’m not feeling like putting on anything besides my 3D Fiber Lash mascara.


Touch Pressed Powder Foundation by Younique  in Velour and Powder Puff Brush

Touch Pressed Powder Foundation by Younique in Velour ($32) / Powder Puff Brush ($32)

The lightweight formula of Touch Pressed Powder covers imperfections and evens out my skintone, while feeling like I don’t have any makeup on. The powder is great for the summer heat (or even the fog if you live in Pacifica). I went to a girlfriend’s outdoor BBQ birthday party in 80 degree heat and this powder kept me from getting shiny. I hate the feeling of makeup caked on my face and I wouldn’t buy any powder or foundation that does that. This powder is lightweight, yet I don’t need to reapply every chance I get like my last powder that I had used for years.

I have bags under my eyes (thanks genetics). I’ve been wanting to try a more permanent solution and I heard that you can find help at, so my plan is to have a good read through the advice and products they offer and try and tackle them for good; I’ve heard they are often just a result of a lack of sleep and dehydrated skin, so my finger and toes are crossed. But until then I have simply been applying Boi-ing concealer by Benefit ($20) to my under-eyes. Using this alone, however, it tends to crease and does not cover the blue-ness of my bags. My solution: I also use Moodstruck Minerals Concealer ($29) under my eyes, over the Boi-ing. That stops the creasing and covers the blueness of my bags.


For my eyebrows, I use a crease brush ($15) to apply a little bit of what’s left of my Stila Brow Set in Fair. I think the product has actually been discontinued because I can’t seem to find it anywhere (besides Ebay).

What is 3D Fiber Lash Mascara from Younique and How Do You Apply It?

Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara How to Apply

I am so glad you asked! I recently started selling Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara because I absolutely FELL.IN.LOVE. I was never into retail and selling because quite frankly, I don’t like pressuring people to buy stuff they didn’t need. This is probably why I never lasted more than a month working at retail stores. No, you don’t NEED that blouse that will be out of style next season and I also don’t need you to return it when you have buyer’s remorse in a few days.

Of course you don’t need mascara. You also don’t need this mascara I’m selling, but if you wear mascara or want to wear mascara, I really hope you choose THIS mascara because you will be amazed at the results.

Since I started selling Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara, I have received some of the same questions and I wanted a place that includes all the answers. Make sure you like my page on Facebook Robin’s Lashes and follow @robins3dlashes on Instagram for up-to-date Younique info!

Don’t forget to pin the image below to your beauty board on Pinterest so you don’t forget how to apply the mascara!

Younique 3D fiber lashes

Q: What is Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara? Is it false eyelashes?
A: It is not false eyelashes. The mascara is a simple three-step process that combines Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes. The 100% Natural Fibers are taken from the Campanulaceae of Green Tea.

Our best selling product, 3D Fiber Lashes dramatically enhances and magnifies the appearance of your own lashes.

Q: How do I apply Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara?
A: To prepare your eyelashes for optimal results, first apply one thin coat of your own regular favorite mascara and let it dry. Then, apply Moodstruck Transplanting Gel to your lashes. Immediately following, and while the gel is still wet, apply the Moodstruck Natural Fibers. Reapply the Transplanting Gel a second time to secure the natural fibers onto your lashes. NOTE: I do not apply regular mascara to my lashes. There are so many demo videos out there, but this is my favorite.

Q: Do I have to wear a coat of regular mascara under my Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara?
A: No, it totally depends on your preference. I tried a couple times with the undercoat of regular mascara and found that it didn’t do much for me. Of course it also probably depends a lot on what kind of regular mascara you use. If you do use regular mascara underneath, I would shy away from a “thickening” formula and opt for “lengthening” instead. If you’ve tried 3D Fiber Lashes mascara and noticed some clumping, read my post, Got Clumps? 3 Tips For Using Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara to see what might be the issue.

Q: How long does Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara last?
A: The gel and fiber set will last two to three months if you use it every day.

Q: How many hours does an application of Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara last?
A: This depends on the time you put it until the time you took it off. My girlfriend put it on in the evening and ended up sleeping in it. She woke up late for work the next morning and ran out the door (By the way, she said she didn’t need to reapply or even curl her lashes. She said, “They looked great!”). We’re talking close to 24 hours of mascara time and she didn’t need to do anything to keep them looking fabulous.

Q: What if I have oily skin? Will the mascara smear?
A: It shouldn’t if your skin is normal to a little oily. If you have really oily skin, I suggest using a primer on your eyelids, like the Moodstruck Glorious Face & Eye Primer, to keep oil at bay. I have also heard of applying water-proof mascara to the tips of your lashes if they reach your lids.

Q: The fibers flaked off onto my face. What am I doing wrong?
A: Make sure you are applying the gel and fibers correctly. The gel needs to be wet for the fibers to stick and you must always finish with gel. Gel, Fibers, Gel. Watch this demo video. She gives great tips to properly apply the mascara. Less when it comes to the fibers and don’t apply them too close to your eyeballs.

Q: I have contacts. Can I wear Younique 3D Fiber Lashes mascara?
A: Absolutely! I wear contacts every single day and I have had no issues with the mascara.

Q: How long will my eyelashes get?
A: That completely depends on you! The more applications you do, the longer. I usually go two applications: Gel, Fibers, Gel, Fibers, Gel.

Q: Is Younique 3D Fiber Lashes mascara waterproof?
A: It is water-resistant so no running or smearing! You can swim with it on, cry with it on and as long as you don’t rub your eyes, it’ll stay put.

Q: How much does the Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara cost and where can I purchase it?
A: $29 + tax and shipping. FREE SHIPPING on purchases over $100. You can only buy Younique products through an Independent Younique Presenter, like me. I’d love it if you decide to purchase the 3D Fiber Lash Mascara that you buy it through me, here!

Q: Does it cause any damage to your lashes?
A: Nope! Unlike waterproof mascara or falsies, these do not pull out your lashes or damage them. The mascara washes right off with warm water and face wash.

Q: Does Younique make other products?
A: Yes they do! Powder and cream foundation, blushers (aka blush), 10 lip gloss colors, mineral eye pigments, Brilliant gel moisturizer, and more! Younique just announced they will be coming out with eye liners, lip liners and Uplift Eye Serum September 1. More product launches in the coming months.

Eye Lashes For Days

3D Mascara Long Lashes

Every other month I’m on the hunt for new mascara. I hadn’t found “The One” and was constantly switching brands. Thickening, lengthening, extreme, full, voluminous. I tried them all and nothing was really working. I wanted the volume, the thickness, and the lengthening all at once. Lucky for me, a friend introduced Younique’s 3D Fiber Mascara and I am hooked.
