Have you ever been baffled by the endless arrays of mascaras out there? Personally, my ADD kicks in whenever I am near a makeup aisle. “How can I possibly pick the right mascara from all these choices?!?”
After many years of trials and tribulations (not to mention blood blisters on my eyes from a certain pink and green packaged mascara), I’ve finally found my favorites. I love, and swear by, Physicians Formula Mineral Wear mascara ($6.36 at Drugstore.com), Blinc’s tubing mascara ($24 at Drugstore.com), and for color- I am really liking Hard Candy’s lavendar and silver options (great for tip highlights when you feel a little wacky!).
Anyhow, here’s a super-short quiz from Total Beauty that will help you consider what qualities you should be looking for in mascaras.

Want to know what I absolutely ADORED in 2009? I’ve gone through every skin care item, makeup product, trend, and ounce of hair care that I tested, or discovered, over the past year and came up with Bionic’s Second Annual “Best of Beauty” awards. And just for fun, I included some stuff at the end that’s not beauty related, ’cause you know… we’ve got to keep it balanced!

I created this makeup look after spending Thanksgiving in the mountains of Georgia. Trees, boulders, and autumn colored leaves were everywhere! Playing off the browns and greens in nature, I used two of my favorite Milani eyeshadows- Java Bean (a cool-toned brown) and Clover (a medium true green), to create this mostly-neutral face.
A makeup look inspired by nature!
