Every girl has their special technique that they use to make their makeup look incredible; they want to look flawless. Girls use several different makeup products to change their looks. One of continuously stay on your eyes and never come off. Waterproof mascara is used to make one’s eye lashes “pop” and “plump”. This product is meant to never run down your cheeks.  Although, waterproof mascara sounds like a good product, it sticks itself on your eyelashes and is practically impossible to get off. Why is such a product designed to make us look like a million dollars, but yet causes so much hassle? Waterproof mascara is not just a hassle it is a problem. This type of mascara removes some of your eyelashes by rubbing your eyes just to get it off. In certain cases, is waterproof marcara worth wearing, knowing it may remove some of your eyelashes and even make them brittle?
Most websites claim and give information about waterproof mascara about how they can cause harm. Do potential buyers read this? Do they even wonder about the potential harm that mascara does? Do they even care?
In an article, by beautybets.com they pronounce how waterproof mascara is potentially running your look, while so creating so much depth in the process.
Not just the websites, but some students also state how waterproof mascara is not really worth what it claims to be.
Sophomore kaitlynn Hartson believes, “not on a daily basis should one wear waterproof mascara, but for certain events yes.”
Senior Ashley Anderson also states, “No I would not wear it, unless one plans on getting wet, or watching a sad movie; I say stick to normal mascara”.
Many girls are so infatuated with makeup they do not care about the pain or even potential risks and even hard work that comes along just to look stunning.
Anderson also utters, “society has made people to think that they need makeup to stay beautiful and because it stays on linger it makes the mission easier”.
Waterproof mascara is great for a night on the town, but on the other hand the pros outweigh the con’s that are not even worth it. Next time you are going to use waterproof mascara really think about if it is worth the hassle and your eyelashes being removed. If you are one who decides to continue this extraneous process of waterproof mascara do not be surprised if you wake up one morning having no eyelashes.

You are at a football game, the score board is counting down to the end But wait; the clock  stops, and it is half-time. Along comes the band with their musical tools. Behind them comes the one the only color Guard team. The field is flooded with colors of red, yellow, and black. The color guard team makes their way to the field spinning, throwing and waving their flags to help create the picture to the magical creation, not just through an art, performance but a sport.

Color Guard has been a school sport ever since Corona was built. Wait, you may be asking yourself, is color guard is a sport? Yes just like any other sport, you have to train, prepare, and especially get your game face on. The Color Guard team has their weekly practices just like any other sport to help them be the best, and make the crowd cheerful at the football games and, more recently, fall pride assembly, pep rallies, and competitions.

Band instructor Chris Peterson emphasizes “color guard is a unique activity quite unlike anything else. Color guard combines dance, performance, with equipment such as: flags, sabers, swords, and anything else.”

While Chris Peterson is the band instructor, all the preparations before the performance’s, are really up to the color guard instructor, Brittany Kaplanek.

Kaplanek details,  “Color Guard is both a sport and an art. It mixes dance with different pieces of equipment and props. The color guard performs with the band on the football field for the first half of the year, and then transitions into ‘Winter Guard’, where the guard performs on their own in gymnasiums to canned music. I am willing to teach anyone that shows up with a great attitude and the right mind set.” Kaplanek also complies, “Color guard is truly unlike any other activity. You will form strong friendships with your teammates that only you will understand. You get to perform at competitions, football games, pep rallies, Disneyland parades, as well as other exciting events. You have the opportunity to make the most out of your high school career and all while earning both P.E. and fine arts credits.”


With all the exciting preparations and use of equipment , there also are procedures that must be followed, especially when it comes to preforming.  The Color Guard team practices their created routine everyday as a family, working together. They often will have Wednesday practices from 3pm-6pm and group performances on Thursdays.

Freshman Alondra Perez explains, “The procedures for the football games are quite simple. The color guard girls put on their uniforms and their makeup, practice beforehand a few times and touch up any mistakes before the performance.”

Whether you want to  play a sport, perform a dance, or create art, the color guard will always have a fun-filled, open position for you. Perez agrees by stating: “it is more fun than you think; it is a great experience, and you kept to meet new people. Who knows, you might even meet your best friend here!”
