On special occasions or a fancy night out, a pair of false lashes can totally uplift your look and give your eye more definition. Needless to say that also on a day-to-day basis ladies now resort to semi-permanent lash extension or lash lifting to have voluminous lashes. However, applying false lashes regularly is not only harmful to your lashes but also not a practical option most of the time. So if you are craving flawlessly looking lashes without having to apply falsies, follow these steps for more volume and length.
Use an eyelash curler
Thou a step that most women skip, but using an eyelash curler is really impactful. The appealing look of false lashes mostly depends on its curl, and this is why curling your lash is the first unskippable step especially if your lashes are pointed downwards. Start with your curler at the base of your eyelashes using light pressure and work your way upwards till the tip of the lashes.
Use lash primer
Just as the complexion needs a primer before applying the makeup to prep the skin and to make your makeup last longer, the same goes for your lashes. Applying lash primer helps the mascara stay put longer for fuller and longer lashes. Before applying the mascara, coat your lashes with primer from root to tip. Layering more primer will help you get more volume.
Find the right mascara
First, you need to decide if you are after length, volume, or both. There are several brands that can achieve maximum results to get your lashes looking exactly like you have false lashes on. Apply the mascara from root to tip and don’t double layers until you let it sit for a couple of seconds to dry to avoid clumping.
Bonus Tip: use talcum powder
You might be surprised but this trick will give you excessive volume. After your mascara dries a bit, cover a q tip with a bit of talcum powder and coat the top and bottom of your lashes with the powder until your lashes look greyish. Reapply mascara again to fully coat the lashes. If your lashes clump, use an eyelash comb to separate them.
