If you ask any girl what she wants more than anything, longer lashes is sure to top the list. Alas, it won’t happen just because you wish for it. However, you can do a few things to make people think you have lashes that are a mile long. They are all super easy to do and you’ll be rolling in compliments before you know it! Try one of these things and I think you’ll be happy with the results in no time. Let me know how it works out for you!
1. Wear a Couple Coats of Dark Mascara
If you’re anything like me, your lashes are longer than they might look. Applying some mascara defines what’s there and adds some color to the light colored tips of your lashes that are hard to see. If you don’t want to go with black, choose a dark brown instead. The color can really make your lashes look as long as you want them to. Easy, right?
2. Wiggle Your Mascara Wand in the Middle
When you apply your mascara, start in the middle and wiggle the wand back and forth at your lash line. This helps separate your lashes so that as you move the wand toward the tips, you get definition and separation at the same time. Then you can apply mascara to the sides and you’re good to go.
3. Quit Sleeping with Your Make-up on
Not only can sleeping with make-up on give you breakouts, but it turns out that sleeping with mascara on can damage your lashes. This can lead to breakage and lashes that fall out. It’s hard to have long, lush lashes when they aren’t even there to begin with. Use a gentle face wash to remove your mascara before bed every single night and your lashes will show it by looking long and lovely.
4. Use an Eyelash Curler to Shape Your Lashes
This handy little tool makes it super simple to turn your lashes up on the ends. This won’t change the length of your lashes, but it will give the illusion that they are longer than they really are. Simply squeeze your lashes between the pads of the tool and gently close the curler. Hold in place for a couple of seconds, then apply your mascara and be prepared to be blown away.
5. Try Lash Fibers for Longer Lashes
Lash fibers work by binding to your existing lash, making them instantly look fuller and longer. You’ll apply the lash fibers before your mascara. They plump things up so your mascara has more to hold on to. You’ll be amazed at how much longer your lashes look when you add lash fibers to the mix.
6. Give Your Lashes a Brush Now and then
According to the experts, brushing your lashes from time to time helps stimulate the follicle, helping your lashes grow longer and lusher. Look for a lash brush at your favorite cosmetics store and use it once or twice a week to get things going the right way.
7. Talk to Your Doctor about a Lash Serum
When all else fails, you might need a lash serum. This product will help your lashes grow longer in as little as 30 days. You simply apply the serum according to the package directions and watch for longer lashes in your mirror. You may need a prescription from your doctor, but you’ll be so glad you went for it.
