Deco-y-ish Makeup Dish: Is that spit in your mascara, or are you just happy to see me?

Crave a blast of lash? 

Chandra (our resident professional makeup artist Diva!) found a little pic on Maybelline block mascara, a.k.a. a "Spit Block". Yes, you can imagine why.  It was cake mascara used in the 1920's and 30's where you'd spit into it and use the little brush mixed with your saliva to get it good and gloopy. (Yum! Who's ready for lunch now?) 

There was a little brush in the case you'd use to apply this cake over and over.  Spit, mix, stroke, repeat...and then admire your Clara Bow lashes loudly. 

Although, if you ever book Chandra (we'll share her with you!) to make you look like Louise Brooks, it will make you happy to know that she is a sanitation freak who always uses disposable mascara wands when working with clients. And it should give you peace to know that she never spits in it! Just don't make her angry.  (We kid, we kid.)

Mascara tip: If you were born with stick straight lashes and want to keep them curled and flirty for longer than five seconds, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler, then brush a quick coat of waterproof mascara on them, and follow that up with a couple coats of regular mascara. The waterproof mascara base will keep your lashes all luscious and curly and stuff, and someone will probably try to kiss you. Or, at least they might wink ;)

Btw, you can still find cake mascara and eyeliner around if you look for it. Happy glooping! And don't forget to powder your noses, Dolls!

P.S. If you're located in Southern California and want to learn more about becoming deco-licious in terms of your makeup, email us at, and we'll give you Chandra's contact booking info.
