Fashion trends and human nature are both attracted to thick, long eyelashes! With so many products to choose from and treatments designed to give you long eyelashes, I want to tell you about some simple tricks you can do to get a wide-eyed look—naturally.
It seems that as we age our eyelashes get shorter and thinner. There could be a number of factors that lead to eyelash breakage and shedding, and many options to help get long eyelashes. Before investing in prescriptions or undergoing invasive beauty treatments, here are a few things you can do to create the appearance of long eyelashes.
Long lash tip 1: First things first: stop the abuse! I’ve said this about hair and skin, and the same rule applies if you want have the appearance of long eyelashes. At the end of the day, it’s easy to scrub the eye area, but being too harsh around this delicate skin area could result in eyelash breakage or shedding. Whether you’re trying to remove waterproof mascara or simply cleanse your face, make sure to remove impurities gently around the eye area to help save your eyelashes.
Long lash tip 2: Brush your way to longer looking eyelashes. Sounds odd, but think of brushing your eyelashes as another element in your daily grooming routine. Just like we brush our hair or teeth, brushing your eyelashes with an eyelash comb can create the appearance of long eyelashes, even if there is no mascara on the brush. It’s also a great way to separate eyelashes before applying any kind of mascara. It’s better to stop the clumps before they start!
Long lash tip 3: Diet and healthy lifestyle are also a factor in getting the look of long eyelashes. If you are well nourished, then so is your skin and hair. A healthy lifestyle will promote healthy hair growth, including eyelashes.
Long lash tip 4: This last tip is for ladies: Be gentle when removing false eyelashes or mascara. False eyelashes are a fun way to change up your look, and they often come into style depending on beauty trends. As great as they look, false eyelashes can rip some of your natural eyelashes from the hair shaft when you remove them. Same goes for waterproof mascara, which can be hard to take off. In times like these, use an eye makeup remover in addition to your cleanser to gently remove your cosmetic lash enhancers, as this will prevent lash breakage.
There are many products and treatments to help you get the look of long eyelashes. If you follow these simple tips, you may not even need them! Keep in mind these are general tips for creating the appearance of long eyelashes. Please consult your doctor for prescription products that promise dramatic results. You could also use traditional cosmetics and techniques to apply makeup to make your lashes look longer. Lastly, my quickest tip for getting the long eyelash look: use an eyelash curler! An eyelash curler will curl your lashes up, making you look more awake and bright-eyed. It’s an instant way to make eyelashes look longer.
