Hoe tip: condition your lashes

I started conditioning my eyelashes every night and literally within a few days I could see a difference. Mascara applies way better and my lashes don’t clump together, and they hold a curl all day without falling!
What I did was I just cleaned out an old mascara tube and mixed some coconut oil, some Shea butter, and some Vaseline together in the tube. Every night I put it on my eyebrows and eyelashes, and it makes a HUGE difference!

Look, i get that suicide squad isn’t the best superhero movie and that there are clearly many issues with the script, story, pacing and some character motivations. However, i don’t think that anyone can seriously disagree with it being nominated for best hair and make-up. Like seriously what other film could possibly be in its spot? i cant think of a single movie during the last year that’s hair and make-up has made the pop culture impact suicide squad did. The work that went into it would have been huge. 

Like for example Harley and Joker 

Whether you like it or not you cant deny the amount of work that would have gone into creating these looks before every shoot, they spray the skin white, do the detailing of all the tattoos and all the regular make-up and hair.

Then you have more tattooing with El Diablo and Enchantress.

And that’s not even mentioning Killer Croc which is a pretty intense transformation

Like its fine that you didn’t like the movie and maybe didn’t like the designs, but don’t shit on the work of some really talented hair and make-up people just because you didn’t enjoy the movie and the DCEU’s current direction.
