Buxom is amazing! It’s the only natural paraben-free mascara that works for me. When I’m broke, the Covergirl natural mascara (forgot the name) works decently well. Another curler tip: if you have a metal curler, you can warm it up for like 10 seconds with a blow dryer set on low. The heat helps the curl to set and lasts much longer than just curling. Be sure to feel it before you stick it on your eye, I’ve learned from that mistake.
