Testing new products and keeping up on the latest makeup trends is something I love doing as a Professional Makeup Artist here in Orange County, CA. Lately, I’ve been seeing colored mascaras being used to intensify the eye. Yves Saint Laurent produced a new shade called Indiscreet Purple for the launch of Volume Effet Faux Cils BabyDoll Mascara.
