When we think about a gorgeous makeup look we think ‘killer lashes’. Making your eyelashes appear longer and fuller are a pretty important step in any makeup routine. Thick, long eyelashes help to make the eyes look more alert. Long, full eyelashes also bring attention to your eyes and we all want eye contact when talking to others. It’s just a bonus if people are admiring your lashes while talking 😉 Here are a few simple tricks to make your eyelashes appear longer and fuller.
1. Eyelash Curler
This simple little tool often becomes left out of so many peoples makeup bag. It may seem like a hassle to curl your eyelashes when you are in a rush to get ready. However, This little gadget is a blessing in disguise. Always curl your lashes before applying mascara. Doing so after applying your mascara runs the risk of pulling your lashes out. You can also curl your lashes even if you do not plan on wearing mascara. Your natural lash will look longer as well make your eyes look bigger and more alert.
2. Wipe Off The Excess
Most often then not, your mascara wand is holding much more product than you actually need. Before applying your mascara, wipe the wand with a makeup wipe and get rid of any built-up product. You don’t need a lot of product to achieve long, full lashes. Often times, too much product result in clumpy lashes.
3. Wiggle Your Wand
My friends always laugh at me when I tell them this trick, but wiggling your mascara wand makes a huge difference in the application. Start at the root of the lashes, then wiggle the wand out toward the edges, instead of making one swift, forward motion. You will instantly notice your lashes longer, fuller, and more curl.
4. Test Different Mascara Brands
Don’t be in an exclusive relationship with one type of mascara. Formulations change all the time. If you still haven’t found the right mascara that gives you all the results that you would like to see, don’t be scared to double up your mascara. Use a couple coats of your favourite mascara for lengthening and a couple more coats from your favourite mascara which adds volume.
5. Use A Primer
Applying an eyelash primer can make a huge difference in the appearance of your lashes! Primers look just like regular mascara, only they are a white or translucent liquid. Put on your eyelash primer before you put on your regular mascara, then watch your eyelashes lengthen before your eyes! I always use an eyelash primer.
