Episode 24: Show notes
Hey there, friend and makeup lover!
Today, I wanted to share my personal experience and newfound love for tubing mascara.
I must confess, I know I’m a bit late to the tubing mascara party, but hey, better late than never, right? So, join me as I explore this innovative product and its incredible benefits.
First things first, let’s talk about what tubing mascara actually is.
Unlike the traditional mascaras that we’ve all known and loved for years, tubing mascara works in a unique way.
It coats each individual lash with a polymer coating, creating a tube around each lash, resulting in longer and fuller-looking lashes. It’s kinda like magic in a tube!
One of the major advantages of tubing mascara is its resistance to flaking and smudging.
And if you experience oily skin around your eyes, or have ever faced the dreaded raccoon eyes, tubing mascara might just be your savior.
Say goodbye to midday touch-ups or worrying about your mascara smearing all over your lids.
Now, if you’re new to the world of tubing mascara like I was (not everyone can arrive to the ball on time!) it’s essential to read the instructions carefully.
The application technique differs slightly from what you’re used to with regular mascara.
Start with clean lashes, free from any previous makeup residue. If you’re a fan of lash curling, do it before applying your tubing mascara for that extra oomph.
To get the most out of your tubing mascara, begin at the base of your lashes, as close to your skin as possible. Gently wiggle the wand back and forth to thoroughly coat each lash, gradually moving outward to the ends.
Personally, I find it easier to work in small sections, starting from the innermost corner of my eye and fanning outwards. If you’re going for a more dramatic look, feel free to apply a second coat, but make sure to do it before the mascara dries completely.
Removing tubing mascara requires a slightly different technique as well. You might find that your go-to eye makeup remover isn’t as effective in this case. I highly recommend trying a makeup eraser or a soft facecloth with warm water.
Place the cloth close to your eyes, both above and below the lashes.
Gently press the layers of the cloth together and pull away from your face. This should help loosen the mascara tubes from your lashes. Repeat this process until you’ve removed all the product, but remember to be gentle to avoid irritating your eyes.
I must say, discovering tubing mascara has been a game-changer for me.
Not only does it provide a longer lash look without the need for extensions or false lashes, but it also offers a smudge-free experience that lasts all day.
Plus, I appreciate the convenience and simplicity of achieving stunning lashes without any complicated techniques or foreign objects near my eyes.
If you’re like me and somehow missed the tubing mascara trend, don’t worry, it’s never too late to join the party.
Trust me, you’ll be amazed at the results and wonder how you ever lived without it. Say hello to beautiful, defined lashes that stay put throughout the day.
If you crave longer lashes or desires an effortless application process, tubing mascara might just become your new holy grail product.
Don’t hesitate to share this newfound gem with your friends who are in dire need of an eyelash upgrade.
Let’s help each other grow our confidence and embrace our personal beauty journeys.

[00:00:07]: I know I’m going to be aging myself with this episode, but sometimes you just get busy and you have your head down. You have your head down and you seem to miss an entirely new product type or technique. And hey, I’m not on TikTok, so there’s that too.
But I wanted to share with you all things tubing mascara because it may just be exactly what you’re looking for and you just don’t know it yet. So what exactly is tubing mascara? Well, tubing mascara is pretty amazing and it works in an entirely different way to mascaras that we’ve all known and loved in recent years and decades. And might I just add that might I just add long live my beloved Max Factor Calorie 2000 of yesteryear. Rest in peace.
What makes tubing mascara so unique is that it coats your individual lashes with a polymer coating and creating a tube around each eyelash that gives your lashes a longer, fuller appearance.
[00:01:28]: One benefit of tubing mascara is that the process can help minimize that flaking or smudging that happens sometimes with mascara. So they’re a great choice for you, particularly if you have oily skin or have experienced the dreaded raccoon eyes or if you experience those often. And as I already mentioned, tubing mascara is a great way to create a longer lash look, especially if you’re not in the market for eyelash extensions or false eyelashes or anything like that. Anything in the lash extension world anytime soon.
Hi, that’s me. Now, if you’re new to the world of tubing mascara, be sure to read the instructions on your first tube of the stuff because your application technique is going to have to change a bit from what you’ve been doing with your regular mascara. You want to be sure to apply your mascara first of all to clean lashes that have no makeup on them already. And if you’re a big fan of lash curling, go ahead and curl your lashes prior to applying your tubing mascara.
[00:02:42]: Now, the way you get the most out of your tubing mascara is by starting at the base of your lashes as close to your skin as you can get and gently shimmy the wand back and forth, kind of like you’re cleaning your teeth, but on a tiny scale, like you’re cleaning tiny little teeth. And gradually bring the wand outward to the end length of your eyelashes.
The idea is that you are thoroughly coating each and every lash as you go and the more you do this, the better you’ll get, of course, but work quickly because tubing mascara can be quick drying. I find it easier to work in a little section at a time, starting from the innermost corner of my eye and then going out fanning out to the outer corner where I can draw where I want to draw the lashes up and outwards a bit more. And you can follow with a second coat if you want.
That extra drama or if you want a bolder lash look, but you’ll want to get that on soon after your first so the mascara hasn’t fully dried yet, and then you’ll have time to work the mascara through before it’s all set.
Now, when it comes time to removing your tubing mascara here’s another time, you might just have to change your technique as well, because you might just find that your favorite eye makeup remover isn’t cutting it as the best product for the job here as the best product for the job in this case. So, as you might guess, first recommendation from me is to try your makeup eraser or a face cloth with warm water.
[00:04:29]: Now, you know I love the makeup eraser because it’s so soft and gentle. So with your warm water, I like to place it close to my eyes and under the eyelashes, and then I fold it over onto the top side of the lashes as well.
And then I gently press the upper and lower layers of my makeup eraser together and pull gently away from my face. Now, this should begin to loosen the mascara tubes from your lashes. From the lashes.
And you can repeat this until you remove all of the product. Just be careful and try to avoid rubbing your eyes, which I know it may well be exactly what you want to do, but honestly, it’s the worst thing for your eyes. So that was my little intro to the world of tubing mascara because honestly, I feel like this sort of came and it didn’t went.
[00:05:23]: It hasn’t went. That doesn’t even make sense.
It certainly hasn’t gone yet because it’s a really successful product and a new style of mascara. So I just wanted to introduce you in case, like me, you were a bit late to the tubing mascara party and you hadn’t had a chance to have a go yet, you might find some really cool effects.
And you all know we all want longer lashes. And if you can do it without any external techniques, devices, or foreign bodies being near my eyes, well, I am all for it. Okay, I hope you enjoyed this episode. Don’t forget to tell your friends.
