Can we all agree that during a heatwave, it is neither the time nor the place to apply all of our regularly scheduled FACE? In these instances, where the mercury is above 91 (!), I find it best to focus on clear, even skin, lashes that are laid for the gods and brows for days. The rest of it — shadow, liner, even a lip save for a tinted balm — can just wait until I’m less likely to sweat it off in a matter of minutes. My new favorite lash and brow enhancers are from Divaderme, which boasts a range of offerings for both in a bevy of shades. Read on to learn about my favorite products from the line and also for a chance to win a set of Divaderme’s lash offerings.
For lashes, all you need is one coat of mascara — I’m a fan of the DivaFXII with peptide-enhanced fibers and argan oil to condition the lashes. Then, I brush on one coat of Lash Extender fibers and then one more coat of mascara to seal the fibers in and prevent fall-out. Longtime readers know I’m a lash-extension enthusiast (since 2010!) but when I’m in between appointments (I go every 5-6 weeks), this method works well to make me feel like I’ve got a good fringe going on so I can calm my nerves during those dramatic “where are my LASHES?” days. Another thing to note: I have sensitive eyes, and am a contact wearer and the technique of layering the mascara-fibers-mascara took a couple of tries to perfect, but I had no reaction, and the fibers stay put and looked great.
As for brows, these products are the panacea for all of us who overplucked in the ‘90s in the name of looking more like Drew Barrymore, am I right? My go-to combo is Divaderme Brow FXII Terra in Ash Blonde with a little Brow Extender II in Ash Blonde as well. The Divaderme Natural Precision Liner FXII is great for simulating brow hairs or using as an eyeliner. Double duty beauty! These products are great for amping up your own brows for a no-makeup makeup look or enhancing your arches to pair perfectly with a smoky eye or red lip (or both, this is America!) for a night out.
