Your eyes are the first feature people notice, so why not give them something that’ll really hold their gaze? Follow these tips to get long, luxurious, healthy lashes that’ll dazzle any onlooker.
Find Your Formula
The first thing you need to do is determine your lash type so you can choose the best formula. Women with sparse lashes should opt for thickening mascara to create the illusion of volume, while women with shorter lashes should go for lengthening and separating formulas. That being said, don’t be afraid to mix it up—makeup artists often work with more than one mascara to achieve different effects.
You can’t go wrong with a versatile product like Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara, which boats a unique lash hugging brush designed to reach every last lash—even in the tightest corners. Its shape simulates the eyelid to grip and lengthen the look of each lash for extraordinary lash extension effect.
For a clump-free set of lashes, be sure to start fresh: remove any pre-existing eye makeup and brush through your fringe with a fine tooth lash comb.
Just like skin and hair, your lashes need to be cared for and protected in order to maintain healthy growth. Choose a product like Concentrated Lash Boosting Serum to reinforce, condition and defend every strand. Primer can be used at night, but it also gives lashes a solid base for mascara, instantly boosting the appearance of a fuller set.
Curl naked lashes with two quick clamps before applying primer and mascara. Hold the wand in one hand, and with the other, gently lift the eyelid back so you have full leverage to coat the lashes from root to tip.
Pull the wand out of the tube and wipe any excess product against the opening of the container—remember, you can always add more later on. When the wand meets the base of the lashes, wiggle it from left to right a few times before sweeping up through the middle and top of the hair, this will coat the sides of the lashes.
Comb through the lashes again while the formula is still wet to encourage separation. If you’re going to apply shadow, do it after the first layer of mascara, if not, wait it out; the key to lengthy looking lashes is to wait for each layer to completely dry before adding the next.
