DIY Eyelash Serum with Essential Oils

DIY Eyelash Serum Using Essential Oils // Pugs & Pearls Blog

As someone who is now in my late twenties, I'm probably getting to an age where wearing less makeup isn't going to work. Despite that, I've really been trying to minimize my makeup routine. It saves time, but the real reason is because I don't want to be startled at my makeup-less face when I pass a mirror anymore. I want to recognize myself! 

It took about a month, but I got comfortable with only wearing eyeliner and mascara most days. There are still occasions that call for a fuller face, and I'm totally cool with that. My goal has simply been to feel more comfortable with my actual face!

Skincare is a huge part of this. I'm still using and loving my DIY skincare routine. It's much easier to wear less makeup if you feel like you don't need to cover anything up.

I've even been able to forgo the eyeliner several times, but the one thing I just can't leave out is mascara! My hair is a dark blonde, which means my eyelashes are super light. They are probably average length, but you just can't see them! 

There are so many serums and eyelash lengtheners out there, and I was ready to buy one that came highly recommended. It just felt super wrong to spend over $100 on something like that though. Before I spent the money, I thought I'd try a DIY instead. I've had such good success with making my own cosmetics and cleaners in the past-so why not?!
