Magazines and media like to show off pictures of women batting long lashes at the camera, looking at the reader through sultry lashes, in short, just flaunting their impossibly long eyelashes. Unfortunately, most women don’t have that kind of long lashes. Many women struggle with thin or short lashes or a decreasing number of hairs. These long lashes feel impossible! Ready for the good news?
With these quick hacks, any woman can have envy-worthy lashes:
1. Use a lash primer
Although mascara is typically seen as a quick-to-use product, if the user takes a little more time, the end result can be much better. A lash primer is a product that one uses before mascara. An eyelash primer prepares the eyelashes for mascara and gives you the best environment to use mascara. It helps mascara stay sleek, dark, and volumized for long periods of time– a good eyelash primer should increase the attractiveness, wear-time and volume of any mascara that is used on top of it. It’s not too expensive and the benefits are numerous! Lash primer will immediately have your lashes looking better, making you the envy of the office.
2. Curl your lashes
Most women don’t realize that their problem isn’t with having short lashes, it’s with having flat lashes. Even if your lashes are long, if they point straight out, they will appear shorter. A lash curler can make any eyelashes appear longer and fuller by curling them up towards the brow bone. When the lashes become almost parallel with the face, they are much more noticeable. It only takes a few seconds every morning to curl lashes. Not to mention that eyelash curlers are a cheap, easy-to-find product that can be used over and over again. Buy it once, and you have longer lashes for a lifetime.
3. Switch to a lash boosting mascara
Mascaras can be versatile, but the best mascaras cater to the customer’s needs. Many companies have started offering mascaras for different types of lashes– lengthening, volumizing and curling mascaras can be found in many stores. Eye lash boosting mascara is less popular, but if a woman is self-conscious of short eyelashes, she should give it a go. These are available in stores, but lash boosting mascara can be customized to each person on online stores. Lash boosting mascaras include different vitamins and serums than other mascaras, which can encourage lash growth and lash strength. With more growth and less breakage, eyelashes should grow long and strong in no time, giving the user that long-lashed, magazine look.
4. Experiment with unique mascara colors
Even if you don’t have the longest lashes, you can make them stand out with a bright, unexpected color. Black lashes are expected, so they blend in and go unseen most of the time, no matter how long they are. Bright green eyelashes could never be missed. Some like to color-coordinate their eye looks with their outfit, but this takes it to a whole new level. Uniquely colored mascaras are now available in most beauty stores. While they might take some confidence to rock such bright mascara at work or school, it will surely make your eyelashes look more volumized and defined.
