6 Steps to Perfect Lashes
By Riannon Westall
Just simply picking out a mascara and applying it won’t give your lashes the fantastic look you want. Follow these steps and you’re guaranteed to get compliments on your eyelashes!
Curl your lashes starting from the roots and hold for 3 seconds. Move the curler outwards 2 more times, holding for 3 seconds each.
Try: Revlon Extra Curl Lash Curler.
If your lashes are thin, you can use a lash primer. A lash primer can thicken and lengthen your lashes, as well as make your mascara last longer.
Try: Smashbox Layer Lash Primer.
3. Pick the Right Mascara
Use a mascara that is very black with a thick brush that separates and thickens lashes. L’Oreal Voluminous is an inexpensive mascara that will do just that.
Or, try: Lancôme Hypnôse Drama.
4. Mascara Application
Firstly, scrape the excess mascara of the brush to avoid clumps. Then apply mascara to the lower lashes. Start at the roots and wiggle the brush down. Don’t forget to coat the hairs at the corners of your eyes. Next, apply mascara to your top lashes. Again, start at roots on the under side of eyelashes and wiggle up. Using the same technique, coat the upper side of your upper lashes. Repeat this one or two more times to add thickness.
5. Cleaning up the Mess
If your eyelashes are clumpy, use can use an eyelash comb to separate your lashes. Also, use a cotton swab to clean up smudges under your eyes or on your eyelids.
Try: Makeup Forever Eyelash Comb Brush.
6. Lash Growth Gel
Lash growth formulas are gels that you can apply to your lashes that will help your lashes grow thicker and longer.
Try: Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator Treatment Gel by Ardell.
