4 Things You Didn't know about Mascara

Wednesday, May 6, 2015
Hi Guys! Happy Wednesday .. It is the middle of the week and we excited to get things going. We all know of that little eye product that can make our eyelashes appear fuller and longer. Well , today I will be telling you 4 things you didn't know about Mascara.


1. Mascara was invented by French perfumer Eugene Rimmel . Rimmel is the word that translates to "Mascara" in French and several other languages. Is there a link to the Rimmel London Brand? Maybe so

2. You should never pump Mascara : Never "play" with your Mascara by pumping the brush in and out as this let's in Air. Once Air gets in, it is susceptible to Bacteria. Did you know .. things can easily get into your Blood stream through the eyes?



3.It Contains Fish Scales: Yes you heard that right! Mascara contains guanine which is ground up Fish Scale. This is used to put the shimmer in Mascara and some other Makeup Products too.

4. Open mouth to apply Mascara: Most of us instinctively open our mouths when applying Mascara. This is because once the mouth is open it makes it hard to blink.
