I thought it might help to do a picture of my eyelashes the way I do them with Courbe Virtuose. It looks really dynamite in person, but photos can't really do it justice. Still, though it would give you the general idea:
Here's how I get that result:
- Curl my eyelashes with the Shu Uemura eyelash curler
- Apply Shiseido mascara base
- Apply a couple coats of Courbe Virtuose
- Comb lashes with a cleaned-off Lash Exact brush
That last step is important, because it helps separate the lashes better (Courbe can get a bit clumpy sometimes). I simply took an old tube of Lash Exact, cleaned all the mascara out of the brush, and that's my lash comb now. It works! I wish one of these companies would just release that type of brush by itself. They sell mascara spoolies by themselves, why not one of those awesome brushes??
