If youâ€™ve ever been asked if your eyelashes are real when youâ€™re simply just rocking the set that God gave you, you know your lashes have reached celebrity status. If you havenâ€™t, here are some top tips so your lashes can live their best life.
A good mascara is worth its weight in gold, a secret weapon in your beauty kit to thicken and lengthen your lashes.
But a superstar mascara isnâ€™t all you can do to get the most out of your lashes. Thereâ€™s actually a handful of industry-approved tips and tricks that will make them really pop.
Here are a few of our favourites…
- Always curl first.
Ok ok, maybe it does add a few minutes to your morning routine. But believe us when we say itâ€™s totally worth it! Curling your lashes before applying anything to them is the perfect way to start your lash routine, making them look even better once mascara is applied.
- Wiggle the mascara wand from the base of your lashes to the tip
Starting from the base of your lashes, moving up to the tips, use the brush by wiggling it horizontally in a zig-zag motion. This will ensure that you coat every angle of your lash and also helps to separate and avoid clumping.
- Work the wand sideways, not just up
Applying only to your outer lashes, pull the brush up and out at the outer edges for an exaggerated elongating effect. Your lashes will look fluttery and romantic.
- Dot black eyeliner in the gaps between your lashes
This gives the effect of a stronger lash line and will make yours appear thicker and healthier, without making it obvious that youâ€™re wearing eyeliner. Perfect for a natural look during the day.
- Use a spare want to de-clump
After youâ€™ve applied mascara, use an old or spare wand (with no product on it) to comb your lashes with. This will remove any excess product and separate lashes for a more fluttery effect.
