FullSizeRenderSomething happened last night that I haven’t allowed to happen in many years.  I went to sleep with my mascara on.  More importantly, that means I woke up this morning with day-old mascara still on my lashes, therefore I’m suffering a dreaded mascara hangover.

I’m simultaneously repulsed because this feels yucky, but I’m also quite a bit impressed with Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara that has managed to stay put.  My lashes are clumped together along the outer edges because of my 7-hour face-plant into my pillow.  However, it’s not smudged like a deliberate smoky eye.  (I used a sample of this mascara that had been in my travel case; perhaps I need to check it out more closely.)

Regardless, sleeping with mascara is a big no-no in my facial cleansing routine. I’ll give my eyes a break today: no mascara.  My lashes need some pampering, and I think I’ll give them the day off.  No “hair of the dog” for these lashes today 😉

Cleansing routine: warm water applied with clean fingertips to loosen any of the mascara.  Then a cotton round with a pump of my favorite eye makeup remover gel, swirled gently over my hung-over lashes.   This morning’s ritual will call for a reconstitution using Dermalogica products: first, Precleanse then UltraCalming Cleanser.
