It is possible if you opt for eyelash extensions as they can give you both length and volume that can last for months if properly maintained.
If you are not ready for this move yet, however, we have a few clever tricks for you that can make your eyelashes look great. There are several tips on how to treat your natural lashes and how to apply false ones in order to achieve better results. Follow them and you will have the fabulous look you have always wanted.
Tricks for having longer and fuller eyelashes
If you want your natural eyelashes look great, there are a few easy tricks that can help you achieve greater length and volume without much efforts. Here are a few ones:
- For more volume
If you want to add volume to your eyelashes, there are a few hacks that can help you with that. One of the options is to use liquid concealer as a lash primer. Use a small brush to coat your lashes and let it dry before you apply mascara. Another very popular option is to apply baby powder between the coats of your mascara. Put on mascara, then add baby powder for more volume and put another coat of mascara. This method is quite efficient, however, it may be hard to conceal the traces of white powder. Hence, there is a better option – use matte powder eyeshadow. It is better to opt for the same nuance as your mascara but you can also apply a shimmery shade between the layers for a sparkling effect.
- For more curly eyelashes
Heat your curler if you want to achieve a better result. You can use your blow-dryer to make it warm enough but be careful not to burn yourself. The effect will be the same as curling your hair with a curling iron. Another way is to put the curling part in a glass of hot water. This method poses less danger of burning yourself than the blow-dryer, while the result is the same. It is also good to put some lash primer prior to curling your lashes. Don’t forget that you should never curl your lashes while you have mascara on them as you can break and damage them.
- For easier removal of mascara
We are all fond of water-proof mascara but we know how difficult it is to remove it. Therefore, you need to apply first a coat of regular mascara and then the water-proof mascara on top of it. Thus, you will achieve the desired effect and also remove it easier.
Tricks for applying false eyelashes
One of the ways to make your lashes more dramatic is to add false eyelashes. There are some tricks that can make them look better.
- For a more natural look
False eyelashes sometimes look too perfect and it is noticeable that they are fake. If you want a more expensive and natural look, you can brush them with a clean spoolie until they become wispy. Also, if you apply your falsies under your natural eyelashes they will blend better and won’t be so easily recognizable. The chances are that you will also feel more comfortable wearing them in this way. If you want your falsies to be more curvy and easier to apply, wrap them around the handle of a makeup brush.
- For a glamorous look
If you want a more dramatic look you can stack two sets of false eyelashes one on top of the other. Another trick is not to glow the edges of the strip of the false eyelashes. This will make your look elevated and your lashes will flutter. It will also elongate the shape of your eye.
How to take care of your mascara
No matter if you wear false eyelashes, lash extensions or you are happy with your natural lashes only, you need to take good care of your mascara, so that it can help you achieve the desired results. Here are a couple of hacks:
- Clean your spoolie
If you want to get rid of dried-up clumps from your mascara brush, you can clean it using lens solution. Take some paper towel and soak it in lens solution. Then carefully clean your spoolie. You will get rid of all the old product stuck on it and the solution will also make the bristles more hydrated, which guarantees a smoother application.
- Cope with dry mascara
If your mascara has dried up but is still within its shelf life, do not hurry to throw it away. You can resurrect it by using eye makeup remover. Under no circumstances, however, use an oil-based remover as it will ruin the mascara. A few drops of saline solution will also re-wet the mascara. You can also put your mascara in a glass of warm water, which will make it more liquid and easier to apply.
Bonus tip: You can use mascara to hide some of your roots or gray hairs. If you are in a hurry, grab a mascara, which is the same shade as your hair color, and apply some directly to your roots.
The tricks above are easy to implement and the results are guaranteed. The most important thing of all is to take good care of your eyelashes and use only products of high quality. Thus, you will have great eyelashes and a mesmerizing look all the time.
