Eyelashes. Where would we be without them? When voluminous and long, they complete a full face of makeup or are just a nice touch to a naked face kind of day. Although I have no super essential mascara preference, I am currently loving Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced and Maybelline’s Colossal. With family and friends convinced I wear fake lashes (I don’t), I have some great tips to share with you to get your eyelashes looking amazing.
1) Before you start coating your lashes like usual, apply mascara to the top of your lashes. So many people skip this step and it’s seriously a life changer! It makes your eyelashes look like you just put on a pair of fake lashes. Just be careful not to put too much or else it will start to get clumpy.
2) When applying your mascara, start from the root of your lashes and work up. Make sure to wiggle your brush for the best results. Wiggle and shimmy like there’s no tomorrow, chica!
3) Curl your lashes. Use an eyelash curler or if you’re like me and don’t own one, use your fingers. After coating your lashes, wait about 1-2 minutes, and press your lashes up with your fingers. It works wonders and you can totally tell the difference!
4) Now, this tip might sound a little weird, but trust me on this one! Apply a coat of mascara and then a light amount of pressed powder onto your lashes. After, apply more mascara. This will keep the mascara from flaking and make them look fuller and thicker.
5) Massage your eyelids around your lash line. It stimulates growth and gets you longer lashes in no time. Not only does this work for eyelashes, but hair too. Massaging your scalp or even brushing your hair works wonders. My hair would always grow so slow, but ever since I started brushing my hair like a crazy woman two years ago, it grows like wildfire! I love it (except when it comes to retouching my roots)!
6) Eat! Eating healthy and getting all the vitamins you need to keep healthy is essential for hair growth. An important trace element you should keep in mind is silicon. It promotes hair growth and it keeps you healthy. Silicon is found in asparagus, cucumbers, green beans, olives, rice, and oats.
