So I am struggling with my clients and mascara. I have several brands I like but as you guys know, 50% of mascara is about the formula and 50% is the brush it comes with. Since I cannot re-use the same brush on everyone, I've been DESPERATELY trying to find disposable wands that are tolerable. I have yet to find ANY that really work just as well as a real mascara wand. I tell my brides they are welcome to bring their own mascara but I do not want my brides to HAVE to bring their own makeup. What do you guys do? Ive heard of some MUA's include a cheap brand of mascara with the makeup application. Ideas?

I have recently had 2 disposable wants lose their brush heads when I inserted them into my mascara tube - I think I wil start using fan brushes more and more!

The only instance for which I suggest a bridal client provide their own product is if they have known allergy issues... Then whatever works for them indeed works for me... that is why I insist on a "Trial Session" at which time all product issues are addressed... As for "cheap" I would not use that term here... inappropriate for bridal, think possibly cost effective but never cheap... marketing is theater, perceived worth is a precious thing...

Have you tried the skinny "lengthening" style wands? I find big ones cumbersome, whereas these allow you dexterity being smaller and lighter and I find I can build up the lashes to the same thickness anyway, using volumising mascara. I use Screenface ones and haven't ever had a problem.

Trying to wash the wands and properly sterilize them is a P in the A in my opinion. Not worth it. It takes practice, but you can get good with disposables over time. I also really like the little dental pick scrubby things for applying mascara. If these options are still hard, have you tried a fan brush and cake mascara?
