I have lashes that are quite straight, they actually point downward a bit. I have tried curling with the heater curlers, curling mascara, simply everything, and nothing seems to work. The curl lasts for about an hour. I wear contacts, so that may be a concern.
I cant be the only one with lashes like this, so...... Help!

My lashes are like that too. Try curling and then using Maybelline's Sky High Curves mascara. The curl seems to last pretty well with this. I preferred Maybelline's Wonder Curl Watherproof, but it is discontinued. You can still get it on ebay, however and I have. I have used other curling mascaras and found them, as you did, not to last long. I find it helps if you want to invest the time to heat your eyelash curler with a hairdryer for a few seconds first. Be careful it's not too hot though! And be sure and use 2-3 coats of mascara if you want curl to last.

thanks so much! will try out that mascara, do you have any problems with it dotting under your eyes? That always seems to be a problem for me, even with waterproof.

I have not had any particular probs with that, but that's not been one of my issues. And yeah, definitely try the waterproof. It has been my experience that the waterproof "holds" a curl better too.

Default Silk is it!

I see mascara commercials everyday on TV, the same company will come out with a new and improved version of their best selling..
IMHO the best thing since sliced bread is to add Silk to any decent mascara tube for longer lashes. (By that I mean silk amino acid, not the fabric)
It works period.

Here is the trick! First I love Mabeline Volume express, second the first coat is key. You need to appy the first coat and let your lashes dry slightly. Do your blush or eyeshadow while you wait. Then after about five minutes apply your second coat. This is a great trick, because it makes your lashes alot longer and fuller! Also focus on the outer eye add extra mascara on the outer lashes to open up your eyes! Good luck!

Oprah and her makeup artist were doing a segment one day and they mentioned how she has that downward eyelash thing going on, too.

Have you tried applying the mascara to the top side of lashes rather than the bottom. Apply while keeping your eye open. It might help alleviate some of the dotting effect you are getting under your eye after applying to lashes like yours. Also, sometimes it helps to use a tissue to dab of a little of the excess mascara off the bristles before applying in order to assure a neater, more controlled application of the product.

I love Definicils (spelling?) by Lancome. It finds lashes I did not know I have.
