Ask Donna

March 15, 2011

Dear Donna,

I know some make up artists cut off the stick of a mascara wand and only use disposable wands for mascara. What do you think of this? Good idea?

Dear Alicia,

Good news beautiful. No need to spend extra cash on disposable wands if you’re the only that uses the mascara. The wand that comes with your mascara gives you the absolute best result. A disposable wand is a good idea only if there’s a possibility of sharing germs…….so don’t lend it out!

As a professional makeup artist, the only time I break out the disposable mascara wands is when I am making up a group of woman with the same mascara. Then, I protect the health of my girls with disposable wands.
