I have a problem that might be a mascara issue, or maybe an eye makeup remover problem. Either way, it drives me crazy on a daily basis and I am in serious need of some advice. The problem? I call it Alice Cooper Eyes.
I don’t wear a lot of mascara—maybe a quick brush or two just to separate my lashes. I even buy the good stuff. Right now I’m using a Smashbox mascara, for Pete’s sake. But each night I use eye makeup remover, then an all-over makeup remover, then I take a shower, step out, look in the steamy mirror, and I have Alice Cooper Eyes. Big, black streaks of leftover mascara running down under my eyes. I use more eye makeup remover to get rid of it, head to bed, and wake up with… you guessed it: Alice Cooper Eyes. The mascara, where is it coming from???
All that I wear on my eyes is a light tan shadow and a few strokes of black mascara, so it has to be the mascara that’s the problem. I only buy non-waterproof mascaras. I’ve used Benefit (the WORST for Alice Cooper Eyes), Too Faced, and now Smashbox, but they all left me streaky. I even switched to Sephora’s waterproof eye makeup remover, thinking that it might remove more mascara than the non-waterproof remover. But, no. I still end up looking terrifying. What am I doing wrong? Please tell me. What mascara do you use? Do you suffer from chronic Alice Cooper Eyes, too? HELP!
